Old school/ new School..
Putting a goose eye draft into Weaveit. Time to get Katie dressed.
So lovely to see you again.
Poor Katie has been sadly neglected in her bag for a long time. But she’s needed for tomorrow as I have someone coming to Craftanoon to learn how to warp an 8 shaft loom.
Tomorrow’s Craftanoon is booked out, but don’t despair if you missed out this week, there’s another next Saturday.
Bookings are essential and numbers strictly limited. I want you to get the most out of the session, so make sure you let me know what you need help with when you book.
New banners have arrived! I’m planning on doing markets again. Any suggestions on which ones I need to apply for?
“Yes, I do need to have yet another craft in my life.”
I keep seeing lots of lovely labels on handmade scarves and hats. Being a compulsive maker I knew I needed to make my own. Why buy them for $1 a piece when you can make them.... after of course purchasing all the tools.
Thanks to Sue from Custom Brows’n’Leather @custombrowsnleather
for the personalized delivery, was lovely to meet you. I’m hopeful I can keep this new craft under some sort of control.
You knew I wasn’t going to resist. Strawberries and scream just happened to jump onto my hook.
I do need samples in the shop.
Whirls and whirlettes now on the shelf ..... there’s a few gone already! Will sit down tonight and get them listed onto the webstore.

I don’t want to be just a pretty picture, I want substance, humanity and warmth. I want to be the Elephant in the room, not fitting in but standing out. The unicorn, never repeatable me.
🇦🇷 Buen día, hace ya varios días que me pidieron que les mostrara cómo hacer el cambio de color, y con tantas cosas por hacer me quedé debiéndoles este video. Anoche lo filmé con la luz que tenía pero no quería dejar pasar más tiempo. Lo importante para que vean es hacer el cambio de color, tomando el nuevo hilo en la última lazada del último punto del color anterior.
En este ejemplo, tengo que hacer 5 mp en rosa y 5 mp en blanco. Entonces tengo que hacer 4 mp (single crochet -sc) en rosa y al hacer el 5to mp en rosa aprovecho la última enlazada de hilo para tomar el hilo blanco. De esta forma,el 5to mp en rosa queda bien terminado y a la vez ya tengo listo el color blanco para comenzar los 5 mp en blanco.
No sé si se me explico bien. Cualquier duda que tengan me chiflan.
Que tengan un lindo día ❤
Ah... si no se entiende bien el video lo vuelvo a grabar.
🇬🇧🇺🇸 Good morning, several days ago you asked me to show you how to do the color change, and with so many things to do I was left with this video. Last night I filmed it with the light I had but I didn't want to let more time go by. The important thing for you to see is to make the change of color, taking the new thread in the last loop of the last stitch of the previous color.
In this example, I have to make 5 sc in pink and 5 sc in white. Then I have to make 4 sc (single crochet) in pink and when making the 5th sc in pink I take advantage of the last stitch loop to take the white thread. In this way, the 5th sc in pink is well finished and at the same time I have the white color ready to start the 5 sc in white.
I don't know if I explain myself well. Any doubt that you have, ask me please.
Have a nice day ❤
Ah ... if you didn't understand the video, I'll record it again.

The magic that is blocking. Opens up the lovely cables, evens out the fabric and helps control the curl.

I’m very excited we have some fabulous new Yarns coming next week. If you’re a member of the KSW brains trust group on Facebook, you already know what’s coming.
In the next few weeks Knit Spin Weave will launch its loyalty program, special prices on workshops, member only free Weave alongs, first pick of new yarns and even more benefits!.
Fiddlesticks Acrylic Superb Big is a premium acrylic with anti -pilling properities. This HUGE yarn knits up on 8mm needles.
The beanie took me less than 3 hours to make with 2 balls. $6.50
Great value, premium acrylic yarn. Not squeaky in anyway, very soft and very even.
Buy quality to make quality! Spending an extra dollar or two in the yarn, is well worth the results and investment.
Another new arrival. This is Malabrigo Lace 50gms 100% Merino 470 yds 50gms.
Not on webstore as yet, I like my shop iPad at home 😮
This is Nube by Malabrigo. Hand dyed merino rovings. I am preparing for our very first Fibre Fest in Auburn SA on July 1st
There are many new Yarns and fibres on their way!
Cast on Thursday, cast off Tuesday, wear on Wednesday. Feel like I had a mini holiday to Iceland! Listened to a great audiobook and clicked along with the needles. More productive than a video game.
AudioBook was Burial Rites by Hannah Kent.
Jumper knitted in Icelandic wool Einband held double. I stock it if you want to make your own authentic Icelandic jumper. It’s listed in the webstore.
Knitting myself an authentic Icelandic pullover with Einband Icelandic wool, working double stranded. I casted on last Thursday and at the second section of the yoke. Really loving this knit, can’t wait to wear it.

Crypto 8ply Gypsy is back in stock. $7.50 a cake be fast as this colourway has sells out quickly
Have you discovered the ‘magic’ of stitch markers?
I use them to keep track of all sort of things. As I need to cast on over 200sts! I have placed the markers after every 20sts. Makes counting much easier.
Practice what you preach. Taking the time to plan projects saves many wasted hours and tears.
My swatch is knitted, washed and blocked. Gauge is 4 sts per inch
Yarn is Lopi Einband held double.
Pattern (recipe)is from Tin Can Knits.
Love the feeling of starting a new project!
Finished my Midsummer Socks by @niinalaitinendesigns
Knitted in Australian Superfine Merino, @ausyarnco
pure pleasure to knit. Knitted on AddiCrasyTrio needles.
Rather pleased with the results and being lace, Peter is less likely to try to claim them! Rose did make an attempt!
Another day off, another coffee shop and yet more socks! This time in Burra at St just Cafe. Socks are in Australian Superfine Merino by Cleckheaton, a very luxurious choice! Pattern is Midsummer socks by Ninna Laitimen Designs, free on Ravelry. And I’m on my AddiCrasyTrio needles again. Just loving these needles, they’ve reignited my sock knitting passion.
Odd ball socks for Peter. I will tell him about this mornings delivery of the Patons EXFM after I’ve given him these. 😊
Now stocking blanket binding. For all those lovely handmade blankets. $3.25 per meter
My sock knitting addiction has taken hold again. I’m loving the new Addi Crazytrio needles.
I’ve added more to the webstore unfortunately no 2.5 or 2.75 available at present.
Feeling virtuous today..... might have to try not to glare at anyone who dares to remove a ball. 😂
Spent this afternoon facing up the shelves. Looking much nicer now.
