Breaking knitting rules.
I have a golden knitting rule. At least, I did. Now I've broken it. The rule was only one knitting project at a time. Then the cooler weather happened and I started to think how I needed to get a move on with my little one's cardigan considering her old one...

Silk scarf
I bought some silk yarn a while ago and I was scared to dye it - it's expensive and I hadn't dyed it before. So, I worked up the courage to dye it and I liked the blue but wasn't thrilled with the pink/green.  It sat around for a while and I tried to decide...

Back to basics, frugality revisited.
Christmas, interstate holidays and unfortunately timed car repairs and insurance bills have left things a little tight for us of late. Very little is being saved and the bills and expenses just keep rolling in.  I spent a bit of time having a sook about our...

Hand woven scarf charity auction
This scarf is hand dyed and hand woven from handspun yarn :) I've added a little beaded trim for a bit of bling. The scarf's weft is throwsters silk, which is a waste product from silk making. It has a firm, rather than soft or floppy hand.  I'm auctioning ...

Pink Peacock and Soft Coral and a cardigan to be!
Some new colourways from me. Technically, Pink Peacock isn't "new" - I've dyed it before, but now it's available in my shop and as a custom order. Some pastels... And some rather strong pink for my youngest girl's new cardigan to be, just cast on tonight. S...

Making something just because
Sometimes I like to make some extra time to design and make something just because I feel like it. I made this little rabbit from wool felt and hand stitched the body. She got some cute stripy socks and a lovely frock, both sewn on the machine. I don't ofte...

Alpaca scarf off the loom
This scarf was partly experimental and I found after starting to warp that my mental calculations were not sufficient - I ended up using twice the amount of yarn for the warp than I thought. But that's ok, these things happen :) I wove with 4 colours - logw...
