Erebor Lace Shawl Knitting Pattern 5

Erebor Lace Shawl pattern

My new design was inspired by the Dwarven artwork in Peter Jackon’s Hobbit films, which were, of course, based on J.R.R. Tolkien’s novel of the same name. Unfortunately, I still don’t have great pictures of this, but as I don’t know when I will be able to remedy this, I...

Knitted Christmas Decorations

I confess, I always struggle getting my act together for Christmas (or Cmismas, as my toddler calls it). I know people start their Christmas knitting in the summer (or even work on it all year round) but I just can’t manage that. The popularity of last year’s post on quick last minute...

Erebor Shawl 4

Introducing: Erebor Shawl

Finished at last. My new design, the Erebor Shawl. Sorry for the terrible pictures, I haven’t had a chance to take any with anything other than my phone, but I wanted to share something anyway. I had hoped to have the Erebor Shawl published by now, but I’ve only just finished...

Tidal Beach Shawl

It’s finally done. It’s been a learning curve, and it’s taken longer than I expected, but my first knitting design is published now. The test knit was interesting. Although I had the pattern tech edited before hand, my wonderfull test knitters still found a handful of small mistakes. They also...

Introducing: Tidal Beach Shawl

It’s done. The shawl knitted to my very first own design. Let me introduce Tidal Beach. So named because the ripples in the shawl remind me of the ripples left in the sand on the beach after the sea recedes. It’s been quite a learning curve, with many mistakes made...
