New Zealand Earthquake Raffle

You can’t fail to have seen the very saddening footage of the devastation caused by the earthquake in Christchurch, New Zealand. Well the lovely Helen Lockhart at Ripples Crafts has organised a raffle to raise funds for victims of the quake. The prizes? Well, lots of delicious knit related swag including an e-copy of the Gladstone Bag. For more details head over to Helen’s blog here.

The raffle ends Tuesday March 1st

Oops, the sequel!

Huge apologies to readers of ‘Knitting’ magazine who may have been trying in vain to find the new ‘Ask Jeanette’ tab promised in the March issue. The scheduled publication went slightly awry but it’s here now. I thought it would be a good thing to add to the blog as it’ll be handy for giving additional information that won’t fit into the magazine.


It has been a while since I posted here although I have been drip feeding through twitter. This week I’ve been working long days to try and get the new sock yarn book finished so there’s been lots of ends to sew in, designs to block & press, patterns to check and tomorrow, finally, projects to photograph. ( Ok so in truth, Sam will be photographing them ) Next week the whole lot will finally come together in preparation for the printers. Hurray!
I’ll post a couple of preview pictures early next week, talking of previews..

Take a cheeky look at what’s coming up in the March issue of Knitting magazine including my pretty boudoir pyjama case here

Have a great weekend
