New year neck warmer **pattern**

17 Jan

Happy new year y’all!

Life is just about getting back to normal again here, which feels gooooood.
Here’s a little project I thought I’d share – good for keeping necks warm in all this chilly weather…


This neck warmer is knitted with Rowan Big Yarn onto 10mm needles. It would work on straight needles, or even better, onto DPNs or a 60cm circular needle.

I have made a couple of pattern options, which you can see below.


Let me know if you decide to have a go or if you’d like to email you with a printable PDF for the patterns 🙂


Artwork for Red Magazine

3 Dec

Here are some pics of a piece I made for Red Magazine Interiors.

The brief was to include samples from the Tricia Guild Autumn/Winter 2012 wallpaper collection. I put these together with other bits from my massive paper mountain like old envelopes, musical scores and vintage hand written letters.

Chuffed with the results – quite a different feel from my usual marble paper pieces.


Knitting for the Totterdown Arts Trail: Front Room 2012

3 Dec


More knitting is upon us…



Errrrr – I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again – Totterdown is the NUTS!




Totterdown Front Room Arts Trail 2012

15 Nov

Hurrah and huzzah – it’s that time of year again…

The Totterdown Arts Trail is on this weekend and Ward Towers will be open for business – whoop!
The house is open from 6-9pm on Friday 16th and then we are open again from 12-6pm on the Saturday and Sunday.

I will have some of my Entomology work up, along with some new bits I’ve been secretly working on including new jewellery and cards. My husband, Tim will have some illustrations and photography up and my lovely friend Alice from over the road will have some of her knitted wrist warmers and paper garlands up for grabs too.

There are quite a few houses open right by us this year – it’s going to be blummin’ GREAT! More info on the Arts Trail can be found here.
We are only 15 minutes walk from the main station in Bristol, so we’re easy to find.

Here are some pics of the new cards I’ve been making:

…and here is a pic of some of the beautiful wrist warmers that Alice will be selling. They are all made on a domestic knitting machine from 100% lambswool – beautiful!:

A map for the entire trail can be found here.
Would be great to see you if you can make it!

Knitted fairy lights advent calendar *pattern and tutorial*

6 Nov

Far be it for me to mention the ‘C’ word this early on in November, but for those of us who like to be prepared and who are already of a festive persuasion, now is the time to be thinking about crafting up some advent calendars!

Here is a pic of my knitted fairy light advent calendar (original post here):

It takes a little while to knit up as there are 24 of the lights to work on, but it is fun to make and a great stash buster!
Each bulb makes a little pocket and I put mini decorations in each of those so that the smalls can hang them on a special little tree. You could always just put a load of chocs and sweets in there though, eh? – NOM!

Full pattern follows. Let me know if you knit one up too, I’d love to see your version! Continue reading

Stockholm Affordable Art Fair 2012

2 Nov

This October saw the first ever Affordable Art Fair in Stockholm.
It was a good one for me – The Crown Prince of Sweden bought a piece of my work, I made Swedish telly and then went on to have a sell out show – HURRAH!!

I have just found this clip from TV4 online, which shows a bit of the fair and a bit of chat about my work. Haven’t got a clue what they’re on about, but y’know…


Happy Birthday Jet!
