Knitting Kits Now Available!


My first lot of knitting kits are now available online – woo-hoo!

I currently have kits for beanies, slippers and a neck scarf, in a variety of yarns, and I will be adding more styles over the coming weeks and months.

Since the modern yarns don’t always fall into the old ply system, it can be confusing working out which pattern you can use with which yarn. I hope that by offering these kits, it will simplify the process for you. Each kit contains a printed pattern, along with the yarn required to knit one item. The packaging isn’t fancy but the cardboard box is recyclable and I think that’s more important than being pretty.

These kits can be posted worldwide and so there are no surprises when deciding if the kit is right for you, the listed price on my website includes postage to various locations around the world.

To see what kits are currently on offer, please visit the following link to search the knitting kits available, either by yarn, or by project type, and make sure you keep coming back to see what new styles become available:

Sneak Peak At ‘Jude’


I LOVE baby knitting! They are so small and cute, and super quick to knit. Following on from my ‘Jory’ pattern, I am now working on ‘Jude’ which is a matching diagonal rib cardigan with the option of a round or V neck.

I have knitted these baby items in Mon Amour yarn. This no pilling, incredibly soft yarn has a beautiful drape and is 100% microfiber, which offers some advantages over animal fiber yarns. It is perfect for those with sensitive skin, including babies and children, and for those who don’t enjoy the scratchy feeling that some pure wool yarns have. This yarn allows the skin to breathe, and is easy to wash either by hand or in the machine. It comes in 16 colours and you can see them all here:
