A toy box full of PHDs!

It takes time to create, write the pattern, test it & draft out a post that follows it.

So, while I knit, unravel & repeat, be on the look-out for what’s coming soon because I’m told that I often get overly excited in sharing the next tinker-me-fancy I have up my sleeves!

  1. I was confused by the scale of your picture but after much consideration and looking on knitting sites, I have concluded that you are going to try arm knitting. There, it’s out! I am probably way wrong and it’s just a miniature stool with a normal ball of wool but I think you are an adventurous, out-of-the-box thinker and whatever you are planning it will be fun! Good Knitting!

    1. Thank you so much for the encouraging words, Hazel! Bless you really. We’re going to have a little pattern shop soon, hence neglecting to write new posts altogether. It’s a frenzy actually – fulfilling some ongoing orders, designing new items, editing the patterns’ notes & every other gritty bits of setting up an online shop. I believe you’ll definitely like one of the projects very much – a challenging Spring inspired DPN pattern.

      You’re quite right with the stool – a child sized stool placed on top of a table. This project is something similar but it isn’t arm knitting for sure, Hazel. I wanted to test this pair of giant circular needles purchased from Wakefield a while ago but couldn’t source the right yarn locally. Ordering such yarn from elsewhere would be a shipping nightmare due to the weight. So, I turned 5m worth of stretchable fleece fabric into yarn instead. I managed to knit a little human’s napping pod out of it for the shop’s photography setting but, it appears to need some fine-tuning.

      P.S : Can you imagine holding that many heavy fleece stitches with your arms? Knitting with those giant needles itself is rather tiring! A full day’s exercise, a knackered, sore body the next day.

  2. I cannot believe that you turned fleece into yarn – how imaginative and practical. I suppose it’s so easy for me to source materials I forget it might not be the same for you. Arm knitting seems to be a developing trend but I’m afraid I agree with you, far too exhausting. Mind you, I don’t think I’ve knitted on anything over 8 mm so can’t imagine you knitting on giant needles either but can’t wait to see the napping pod. You are obviously extremely busy re-jigging all your ventures and I wish you every success. And you have intrigued me with the suggestion of a new challenge. Best wishes
