Today, I’m so happy to share an interview with my dear friend, Kate Jordan, who’s just published her very first book, Onward Knits. Kate and Mr. N went to university together in New Zealand, and I met her for the first time over three years ago during our trip to NZ after years of online chatting about our mutual love of wool and knitting. Since then our friendship has been sustained by Facebook chats, Skype knitting sessions, and, earlier this year, an epic trip to Edinburgh Yarn Festival! I actually find it a little hard to believe that we’ve only spent a few weeks in each other’s company over our years of friendship–the internet is a wonderful thing!
Over the weekend, I had a really delightful (if far too short) visit to good friends who live in Devon. My friend and fellow knitting enthusiast Grace had been promising me she had some good yarn shops to introduce me when I next visited. We only had time for one shop, so we made it a good one: Wool on the Exe in Exeter.
Just a quick note to say happy Thanksgiving if you’re celebrating today! I’ve got so much to be thankful for, not least knitting and the community that surrounds it. So thanks to all of you who chose to spend a little of your day here. Sometimes I wonder if the knitting blog is a dying breed (there are so many other places to get knitting chat theee days) but I really value this space and all of you! If you’re in the United States (or anywhere else for that matter), I hope your day is full of good food, good company, and maybe a spot of knitting.
Hello hello friends!
Despite my best intentions (and a backlog of things to tell you about), I’m still struggling to write here as often as I’d like. I’m going to give some thought to why that is and try to come up with a plan … I do really value this space and having a chance to chat in the comments and don’t want to let it completely fall by the wayside.
Case in point … I finished my Lotta Dress at the end of October, got photos a few weeks ago, and am only today managing to share it with you!
Hi friends and happy first day of November! It’s also the first Thursday of the month, which means it is time for some sock talk (and I have a little KAL news at the end of the post!).
Hi friends, and happy Tuesday!
A little over a week ago, and a bit on a whim, I decided to jump into Style Bee’s Fall 10×10 Challenge. Are you familiar with these kinds of challenges? They exist in different forms, but the idea behind this one is you pick ten items (including shoes!) and for ten days you wear them in combination.
Hi friends, and happy Friday!
I’ve been sitting on this finished object post for ages, waiting to have the time to sit down and properly write about what is probably one of my favorite ever finished garments, my Incunabula Cardigan, knit in very special Shear Delight Castlemilk Moorit/BFL DK.
