The new Knitty came out earlier this week. It’s exactly 9 years since I sent my first pattern ever to Knitty and accidentally changed the course of my life — nostalgia! Isn’t that cover sweater pretty? 

Season 2 of Orange is the New Black came out last Friday, we may have binge watched it at the weekend. Love this clip, thanks to Cirilia for capturing it! 

Don’t forget World Wide Knit in Public events start this weekend, maybe you’ll find one local to you.

Yellow Submarine Yarn bombing project unveiled.

Quince and Co released their new yarn last week Piper 50/50 Merino, kid mohair heavy lace weight. 

I’ve been working on some sweaters (got to do something to make all that tv watching productive) but my current big project is a wedding dress for my oldest friend. The wedding is three weeks tomorrow and I’m still working on developing the pattern so I’d better get a move on!
