Printer friendly


All of my patterns are now available in a printer friendly format. These are streamlined to have no images included and all of the charts are moved to the end of the pattern (black chart squares have also been replaced with grey chart squares to reduce ink consumption). You can find the printer friendly versions on each pattern’s Ravelry page (if you purchase a pattern you will get access to both versions).

Website Update

The keen-eyed of you will notice that will this blog post the website has gained an extra page. This page lists all of the patterns I currently have for sale (all through Ravelry), along with buy now links (you don’t need to be a member) and lots more images that you will have seen in the blog posts.

I’ve also updated my Knitting 2010 album as well as adding a Knitting 2011 album (which I will try and keep updated).

Have a look around.



March Madness continues with another design rolling off the board, inspired by the latest offering from apple, the ipad2.

A cabled cosy for your ipad with ever watchful owls to look after its precious cargo. Designed to fit both 1st and 2nd generation ipads. Beads can be used for the eyes, but I would advise against it as they may scratch the screen. Instead use small sequins, or some contrasting thread.

Available for £2.50.

A summer hug. One piece to keep your arms warm on summer evenings with the bonus feature of being unable to lose an arm (unlike with wristwarmers). Increase your needle size to accommodate increases in arm circumference so it can fit anyone. Perfect for displaying those bumper yardage sock yarns where everyone can see them.

Available for £2.50.
