Progress on my Sage cardigan

I picked up my Sage cardigan (pattern by Kim Hargreaves) again! I’m still knitting the back piece, but I made a few centimetres of progress.

July Works in Progress

This summer’s been heating up over here, and I’ve been a bit lazy crafting-wise because of the temperatures. To be honest, I haven’t touched my Sage cardigan in weeks!

Which I’ve been procrastinating on for some reason – sometimes I’m reluctant to learn some new casting-on or casting-off technique because I’d…

Crafting books: Socks, the 2000s, and my favourite knitting books ever!

There’s an abundance of free knitting patterns out there, of which I regularly make use of myself. It’s great if you don’t have much extra money to spend on your hobby, where even the cost of the material can be rather expensive. However, I like supporting designers whose work I love too. Plus, I love…
