Colourful Sweary Bobble Hats …

So … our sweary bobble hats really have been in high demand! I am just working on an order of 20 for some very smart bikers in Brum. In the meantime I have been experimenting with some different colours, contrasts and bobble sizes. This colourful bunch of sweary hats will be available £15 each from the studio this afternoon!

What do you think?

Fu#k Cancer …

On the back of our sweary bobble hats, Lee’s best mate in Brum commissioned a politer version, but one with the incredibly strong and powerful message to ‘Fu#k Cancer’. Cancer stole my gorgeous little girl , my beautiful mother, my fun loving brother-in-law and my funny teenage cousin. It has also impacted so many other family members and friends. So I spent much of this weekend knitting up our latest design and this lovely lot will be posted off to their new owners tomorrow! If you want one for yourself then just drop us a message … each sale includes a donation to Cancer Research.

Oh and this is one bobble hat that I will most definitely be wearing with pride … Fu#k Cancer indeed!

I am so goddamn happy. Between the snow and a couple of days annual leave I have enjoyed spending quality time in my craft room cosied up with my knitting machine. So, Lee gave me a photo of a jumper he really liked and asked me could I knit one similar. So without a pattern, but with a swatch, a tape measure and a bit of maths I recreated the exact same jumper for him. I am blinkin’ chuffed … it fits him perfectly (great maths by me) and he absolutely loves it! ❤️

Sweary Bobble Hats …

Sweary Bobble Hat …

Very happy to have spent this weekend learning more about my knitting machine. Spent yesterday at a brilliant one day workshop learning all sorts of new things. Spent today fine-tuning my sweary bobble hat skills! Soooooooo blinkin’ happy how this one turned out … what do you think?

Hats All Folks …

Learning the knitting machine has been so so tough. I knit, I sew, I embroider and I crochet, and I do them all with confidence. However, learning how to use a knitting machine is a whole new league for me. I’ve made it my challenge to master the machine in 2018. With stripping, oiling and much perseverance I have my Silver Reed standard gauge singing beautifully. I am mighty proud of these beanies I machine knit over the weekend. The flower design was using one of the punch cards that came with the machine, but the other two are my first attempts at creating my own designs. Lee is very happy with the secret message written into the blue one. They are not wholly perfect but it was good learning and everyone starts somewhere right?
