Alert! When it comes to colour, beige is my vanilla. But is it safe and boring, or a yummy comforting biscuit? In this month’s knitting podcast I’m finding my assumptions challenged as I get weirdly drawn to a colour that makes me look naked…!
I’m also enjoying cables! My new hat design for Hudson + West Co is Kolsch, and features lots and lots of cables inside diamond-shaped frames. Glorious! It’s released on 27 April.
Poetry returns to The Crimson Stitchery as I’ve discovered a lovely poem by Marie Howe about a plague of mysterious scissors. It’s not clear what metaphors are lurking beneath the words – give me your best guess in the comments below 🙂
I’m working on more cabled socks for the autumn. How should I theme my mini-collection of cabled sock patterns?
My new design is the Kolsch hat for Hudson + West Co. Sign up for my newsletter to get updates on all new pattern releases!
The previous accessories I designed using mohair-silk and hand-dyed merino yarns are the Bundle of Stars shawl & Starlit Night fingerless gloves.
