Jane Richmond Book Launch at Baaad Anna's Yarn Store

Hey folks,

Baaad Anna's yarn store is doing a book launch for Jane Richmond's lovely book Island! The launch is going to be THIS Saturday January from 7pm onward! 

I knit her hat Renfrew yesterday (in one day!) and it's a lovely pattern. Very cleverly constructed, and quite a beautiful design.

I love getting interviewed!

The lovely blog OwlPrintPanda interviewed me for the Cuppa & Cake section of their blog! You can find the interview here. 

Thanks Amanda for thinking of me!

A couple new cowl patterns and some photographs!

Happy new year loves!

I hope you're all finished your Christmas knitting and are knitting for your lovely selves again. 

I thought I would pop by to let folks know that Baaad Anna's published their first pattern! A cowl made out of Briggs & Little's Country Roving. 


I got to model for it, Nicola took the photos and man I think they turned out pretty well! 




Also, I thought I would start updating again with photos I've been taking. 

This week I did a photo shoot with one of the Baaad Anna's regulars. His name is Barth and he's knit a lovely sweater pattern that's in the work of being published. I'll update here once it's published!

Here's the link to his finished object page for this sweater. 





I've got a cowl pattern that is really just a store sample at Baaad Anna's that I'll be publishing so that folks who want to knit it have a place to find the pattern (which is what most of my patterns are - store samples out of our lovely yarns)

It's out of the new Eco + that we have at the shop. I chopped the huge ball into three smaller balls and knit them all together with massive needles (15mm)

Here are some photos of the new cowl, and also some insight into my editing process! These ones are pretty heavily edited because I just couldn't resist with that green background! Lends itself well to high contrast and a cross-processed feel



Nicola is so adorable, goodness me! 

I love to see before/after shots. You can see just how much editing can go into a photograph, and it demystifies the whole process, which I love.
