My admission…

Sometimes you have to come clean and own up to something that you may have been trying to avoid admitting.  My admission is that I am a wool snob, and now that I have come to terms with this, I can begin to do something about it (or not).

The amatuer socktographer strikes again

After feeling guilty about Little P's socks, I decided to give them another go.  As I had expected, they required a full frog and re-consideration of the pattern.  After much thought (and a couple of glasses of wine), I realised that the best way forward would be to stick with what I know (and I… Continue reading The amatuer socktographer strikes again

First foray into lace

A little while ago I decided to venture into lacework and have a go at knitting something a little different.  Little did I know I was venturing into new territory which the Binty's Farm knitters had yet to explore...
