These are currently on my bamboo circular needles – a thick sock made from fabulous wool from this lovely hand-dyed wool shop: Baby Long Legs.  I am using the Double Knit Merino Wool dyed in striking blues, turquoises, and purples!  I love the super soft texture and the squishy feel of it knit up!  I would definitely recommend this wool shop because of its good quality wool, unique and vibrant dyes, and attentive customer care.  Look for the pattern soon in my new tutorials section.  I’ve written it up and have all but the gusset sorted.


Just a little line to say that I’ve updated the shop with some fun knit and crochet items…more will be on the way next week too.  All the items listed are of a really amazing bamboo cotton blend wool I have fallen in love with!  Its soooo soft, yet really workable – delicious colours too…!  Take a look!

Shop Little Wood Bird

Ooh, I like my new knitting book I picked up yesterday!  Its called Chicks With Sticks: Guide to Knitting…and its a how-to/project and pattern book with ‘more than 30 cool, easy patterns.’  I bought it thinking of Mark and the hankering I’ve had to knit a sweater for ages.  So, I’ve put the two together and will be knitting him a pullover for his birthday in March!  Yay!  He’s in the know, and he thinks its nice because its like a little heirloom {I love that word}.  So!  The wool I purchased alongside the book is Wendy Mode, Double Knitting, %50 Pure Merino Wool + %50 Fine Acrylic in dusty blue {to match his long eyelashed-eyes} and a handsome woody brown {to match his looks}!

The sweater I will be knitting is called ‘Guy’s Tailgate Sweater’ and is a wide-striped crew-neck with a casual fit.  He has one wide-striped thermal that he loves – and really flatters him – so I thought a like-minded, but warmer, sweater was in order!

Oh how I love knitting in the winter!  Time spent inside huddled by the radiator is time well spent with two needles in hand! ; )

Cable Dishcloth

I made this little dishcloth, and a friend in a dark turquoise, based on a simple cable pattern and some rib stitching at either end.  I love the softness of it and the colours I chose in Debbie Bliss’s Cotton DK.  I could make 50 more of these – I love them so much!!!  I think they will definitely help to inspire me to do the washing up… ; )
