Knitting socks is just one of those lovely things in life, well, for me it is anyway. It is the process of knitting them, the construction, that makes it so enjoyable. I like to knit socks that are patterned and... Continue reading

When I first saw the Harmony Blanket designed by Lucy at Attic 24 I was in love with it. I just adore the patchwork look of it, so homely and cosy. My daughter Amy also loved it because her favourite... Continue reading

Hi Tracy, I basically just drew around the finished purse onto fabric and added a seam allowance. I then sewed the 2 pieces I cut together and slotted it into the purse before attaching the clasp :)

Thanks Craftimax, I don't really 'decide' as such, I grab a box of things and just randomly pick things depending on what I feel like at the time. It always turns out well, I think the main this is not to over think what you are doing :) I have done some mixed media on paper in a journal but I prefer the canvas. The music is called Happy Happy Joy Joy and I bought it from a stock music place a while ago to use on my videos :)

Have fun knitting it. I have the yarn for Charlotte and Amy's now so I am going to try and alter the pattern to fit (forgot to order DK instead and have Aran again!)

Hi, this is Stylecraft Special DK which you can order from www.woolwarehouse.co.uk or www.Deramores.com. I made this is 2011 but I think the colours were White, Lemon, Fondant, Wisteria, Sherbet and Spring Green :) I hope that helps.

Brrr! It is really cold in South West England today but I am relieved that we are not enduring the snow that is affecting some of the country. Whilst I love snow for the photographic opportunities, I do not like... Continue reading

Hi Anne, the notches are just under 1/4 inch but as long as the depth is enough to keep the wool in place it will be fine :)

Hi Glenda If you download this: http://itsmesarah.typepad.com/ExplodingHexagon/ExplodingHexagonCarouselTemplate.jpg and this http://itsmesarah.typepad.com/ExplodingHexagon/LidTemplate.jpg you should not need to enlarge them they print correctly on A4 paper. I am not sure about the issue, you could try eBay. If you go here http://www.sarahyoude.com/2010/09/exploding-hexagon-carousel-box-video-tutorial.html you can watch the video I made which is more explanatory than the article anyway :) Sarah x
