Free knitted camera strap pattern is here.

It's quite hard to take a photo of one's camera. What do you use to take it? Hmmm. I was almost reduced to drawing a quick sketch instead...

  1. Your projects are stunningly beautiful. Love your work! Any tips for someone who’s scared of Fairisle?!!

    • Only this: Don’t be remotely scared! It’s not actually difficult. I might post a few tips and pictures here soonish to prove how un-difficult it is. Grab some old yarn and do a couple of practice squares to prove to yourself that you can do it, then you can approach fairisle patterns with confidence. And if – like me – you tend to drop the unused yarn rather than holding both elegantly in one hand, well the world won’t end and the result will look pretty good.

  2. And thank you for your lovely compliments. (Sorry, I always get carried away evangelising about fairisle!) Am looking forward to more posts on your lovely, joyful, eclectic blog.

  3. I love the bird sculptures. (I like all the items, but those birds really grab my eye!)

  4. Amazing work! those pigeons look real! I love the details in the skirt you knitted too.

  5. oh wow…just fabulous.
    And I got a good giggle from the buck and his tag!

  6. I will never be able to knit a jacquard!My passage stitches always turn out too loose and don’t look clear…. πŸ™ πŸ™ πŸ™ Your work is amazing!

  7. ms.spectator

    Wonderful. I love the bracken especially, so delicate. And the afghan? INCREDIBLE.

  8. Wow, those are really unique designs! Beautiful!

  9. oh my! If you put Big Afghan [Completely] Covers [Horrid] Ugly Sofa you get Bacchus – mine’s a glass of red thanks πŸ™‚ Love your work, and congratulations on the award, well deserved!

    Love the bed quilt! I’m trying to find a watercolor class but so far, no luck. I think it must have been a fad in the early 90’s.

  11. Den

    What beautiful projects, all of them! I loved seeing all the different colorwork. πŸ™‚

  12. My favourite of them all has to be the planet, have you finished it? Do you have a post about it? Would love to read the story behind it πŸ™‚

    And yes, I could hear the stitches screaming whilst being cut…

    I really like your three-dimensional application of knitting. As a non-hunter who lives in an area where hunting (and spoils of the hunt mounted on walls) is very common, your knitted deer head cracked me up. I’m very tempted to try that as a protest to all the creepy-eyed wildlife on walls.

    • Thank you. It was most definitely knitted with a heavy dose of irony. No dead animals on walls round here! Hope you do decide to make one – it’s a fun knit. Pattern is on Ravelry.

  14. Your work is gorgeous. Thanks for stopping by my blog. Looking forward to following yours. Best.

  15. Wowww your work is so neat n awesome!

  16. WOW – so much of teriffic stuff to discover on your blog…. I like most of it… Love knitted mandala & your fairisle knittings & using earrings as stitch marker & the cool black white cat on the gorgeous plaid covering the ugly sofa … & … &….&
    Thanks for visiting my blog … warm regards, Annett

  17. Hi, I discovered your blog today after reading you in simply knitting πŸ™‚ your projects are simply stunning! I’m truly impressed and inspired πŸ™‚ thank you! How do you find the time to work, study a master degree, have twins, make your own cookies and knit and crochet all these masterpieces?? You must be Wonder Woman or you have an army of yellow minions working for you πŸ™‚

    • Gosh, thank you for such kind words. I am definitely, definitely not Wonder Woman! My house is a mess and I’m way behind on the admin. I do spend a lot of time knitting whilst reading to the children (or knitting when I ought to be asleep). Anyway, thank you. Your blog is beautiful, by the way. I was just reading your story of the fairy in the woods.

  18. It’s howling a gail (or Hurricane!) outside and Cumbria is slowly being submerged. I just thought I’d escape the rising tide by sheltering in your wonderful yarn Gallery. Its warm and snug in here and the patterns are great. As always your witty blog has made me smile.Thank you. Suitably restored and with Sou’wester donned I am now ready to face the elements. Bring it on Hurricane Desmond… Moke
