Lovely to have you here again. Today I will show you a little step by step how I decorated my new design sketchbook .
To start off with I must apologise for the delay. As happens to all of us, life caught up with me and I never got around to finishing my series on Knitting Meditation. That was largely because it took me a long time to create the video I wanted to accompany it. But with out further delay, lets get into it. Continue reading “Meditation Knitting : What to meditate on”
As promised today I am going to be telling you a little bit about how I do my meditation knitting in a little step by step guide. (As with last week’s post this also applies to crochet)

I know that it is still November and some people don’t like to think about Christmas before then (although a lot of people seem to be making an exception this year!) But I wanted to release this Christmas Bunting pattern now so that if you wanted to make it for this year’s Christmas you would have some time!

Today I want to share with you my free easy crochet star applique for embellishing your crochet goods, or anything you can sew onto really.
I know that there are very many crochet star tutorials out there for free but I decided to make my own so that when I link to it for my paid-for patterns I know that it will still be there and I don’t have to worry that the original poster has taken the pattern down!

Today’s post is actually a guest post by my husband! He had agreed to make a blog post about how he made me my wool combs. The post is admittedly rather long but we both felt that all the information was necessary and so long it shall stay 😀 Continue reading “Wool Combs Tutorial”
As I was spinning away recently I was thinking about how much colour theory comes into play for spinning for me. And then I started to think that not everyone who gets addicted to spinning (it really is an addiction) has done art at school or knows colour theory.

Beginners Knitted Ribbed Beanie
This beanie is part of a beginner knitting set that I have designed. They are designed to be your first knitting projects after you start getting lessons or have done a tutorial or two from Youtube. Although I have included lots of descriptions and photos this is still intended to be used after you first learn the basic knit and purl stitches. When I first began to learn to knit I was often told to practice so I made many squares and rectangles which I ultimately threw away. Now 23 years later I am really sorry that I threw them away. So these patterns will help you turn your practice rectangles into something functional that you can look forward to wearing at the end! Continue reading “Beginners Easy Knitted Rib Beanie”
Easy DK Crochet Beanie
I designed this beanie specifically because most of the patterns I was finding were calling for worsted or Aran weight yarn but where I live in Scotland I find that DK is the most readily available weight yarn when I go into shops. So I designed this simple beanie pattern to use DK weight yarn.

I have a little Valentines Day related tutorial. I do know that this is a bit late for an actual Valentines craft however this technique can be used for many decorations and therefore many cards! Continue reading “Detachable Card Decoration Tutorial”
