  • 08/03/08--04:27: back to blog
  • After almost two years’ absence from blogging, I finally decided it was time to set up a new blog.  Whereas my last blog was a joint knitting/sewing project with my dear friend Renee, this blog will be all about me me me!  I don’t spend enough time on either of my interests – knitting and [...]

  • 10/12/10--08:19: the blues
  • It’s pretty apparent that I have a very narrow palette of colours that I knit with if I’m making a garment for myself.  I find myself drawn to the same colours of rich reds, dark greens, browns, as well as black and grey.  On the odd occasion that I try to break out, and do [...]

  • 04/24/11--07:08: a suitcase of yarn
  • I may not have knit a thing for several weeks, but that’s because I’ve been busy with other yarn things… dyeing up this lot! It’s a suitcase o’ yarn! Coming back from holiday last month I got all motivated and inspired, and I decided it was finally time to do something about my yarn dyeing [...]

    What an incredible day! I’d been struck with a heavy dose of panic the night before and was very close to not going to the fayre at all.  I mean, where do I get these crazy ideas from?  Then the train lines conspired against me with their engineering work, and it seemed that I really [...]

  • 12/29/11--09:42: a playful giveaway
  • It’s the season for giving, and also the season for warm woolly stuff here in the northern hemisphere, so there’s no better time to give away some yarn. Some of you might be aware of the knitting blog and podcast known as A Playful Day (you might remember that I was interviewed for the podcast [...]

  • 04/29/12--02:00: to market, to market
  • It may be rather quiet over here on this blog, but there’s lots going on behind the scenes.  Not much in the way of knitting, granted, but rather more in the way of dyeing. I’m about to slip in to a dyeing frenzy, as I’ll be having another stall at the Spitalfields City Farm Sheep [...]

    One of the highlights of my recent trip back to Australia was taking the opportunity to meet up with Nan Bray at her farm, White Gum near Oatlands in the midlands of Tasmania. I’d heard about Nan’s ethical superfine merino wool a few months prior, and so we arranged to meet up on my trip […]

  • One of the most amazing things about being a yarn dyer is the opportunity to collaborate with some truly fabulous people and to get involved with some great projects. I’m very excited to say that Travelknitter yarn has been used in a project that is very close to my heart: the brand new London Craft […]

  • 07/28/16--23:39: Heading to Fibre East
  • The Etsy shop is shut, the bags are (almost) packed, and the excitement is high: this weekend will see Travelknitter yarns at Fibre-East in Bedfordshire for the first time. I’m getting just a little bit excited about this now – too excited to type properly actually – so I’ll keep it brief! I’ll be bringing […]

  • 09/01/16--13:47: Summer yarn, winter yarn
  • Here we are at September 1st already.  For those of you here in the northern hemisphere, I hope you had a fabulous sunny summer.  And for those of you in the south, I hope you’ve had a wonderfully woolly winter! My own summer has been busy but enjoyable.  I’ve recently launched two new colourways (if […]
