Originally I was going to do a Me Made May post each week, but as you can see, that hasn't happened! So this will be one big roundup for weeks two and three: Day 8: This day was really warm, so I wore a pair of Safiya shorts I batch sewed last month (along with… Continue reading Me Made May: Weeks 2 & 3
I'm really bad at blogging about my knitting projects, and there are lots of socks I've made over the last few months that I've never posted about... until now! Fair warning, this post will be really boring if you aren't interested in sock knitting! I'm partly writing it as a record for myself. I've revised… Continue reading Vanilla sock round up

Back in February I… Continue reading Tencel twill Sade blouse (from Breaking the Pattern)

I love giving people handmade Christmas presents;… Continue reading Handmade presents
