Pattern: Capel Cross

“Finally!” I hear you say! Yeah, I’m inclined to agree. It was a journey, I must say. Being such a perfectionist where my patterns are concerned means that I’m never knowingly putting out rubbish! I’m slow at this and I know it, but I’d rather be slow and be sure that I’ve produced the best work that I can. I really enjoyed knitting this – so much so that I made three! I’m looking to knit a fourth soon! ❤️

Cosy Knits Book Launch – Dublin, Ireland. October 2019

I had the opportunity to take part in a book launch for Carol Feller’s latest pattern book: “Cosy Knits” at This Is Knit in Dublin. It was exciting to finally meet a designer whom I’ve admired since I took one of her workshops back in 2011. It was that year that I decided to embark on pattern writing and she guided us through all the maths (and it was a LOT of maths!). As you know, my shawl pattern, ‘Terrain‘ is in Carol’s book, so it seemed fitting that I should turn up to support her. The purpose of the event was to talk to a small audience about the pattern and how it’s constructed and to explain my design ‘process’ (personally I call it ‘madness’, but let’s keep it PC, huh?) and also talk about the creative thinking behind it. I’m not gonna lie, I was bricking it – I’m not used to speaking in public, or to any crowd beyond 5 people! I was definitely out of my comfort zone. I think I got away with it…! It was times like that that I wished I could sing and tap dance!

It was an absolutely fab day! I met some wonderful people, drank my first pint of Guinness (oooh!), ate loads and laughed and cracked jokes until it was time for bed. If you’re in Dublin, check out This Is Knit! It’s an amazing yarn store, filled with a large range of yarns and you’ll always be welcomed with a warm, Irish “Hallo, there!”.

Coming up next…!
