For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother's womb

All work and free yarn . . .

makes one happy becca!

There is much knit news to report. Most excitingly of all, some of the free yarn samples I requested for my summer project arrived this morning. I was expecting meagre offcuts and a shade card. What I actually recieved was a package containing seventeen balls of beautiful designer yarns! :) Oh yes, Debbie Bliss, Louisa Harding and Noro. Bring on second year textiles I say.

I've been working hard in the shop, becoming more familiar than I would care to be with the steamer. In between I've been attempting this pattern using the mohair disaster remnants. I'm about halfway through now, but it's coming up a little small. With any luck the long long train journey to Fron's will be the perfect knitting opportunity.

  • Knitting in/at/on: The humble 2a bus. Had a nice knitting chat with a jolly purple shod lady. She told me about how her Nan had tried to teach her, and the year everyone got crocheted blankets for Christmas.
  • Spotted: A Mother-of-the-bride knitting adorable rainbow socks with four tiny wooden needles.
  • Listening to: Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros - HOME
