Mood Ring: Confessions of a serial dyer

Tue, 07 Jul 2015 19:01:23 +0000

In this episode: We begin with a trip to the slow city of Pollenzo, the Albergo dell’Agenzia, and the Slow Movement. A weekend studio tidy leads to much musing on the subject of stashing materials ahead of using them. I meant to mention how this way lies madness, but never quite got around to that. […]

It’s best not to stare

Thu, 26 Mar 2015 20:15:56 +0000

It’s been a few months. How ya doing? How’s your knitting? I’ve missed you. In fact, that’s what today’s post is all about. I just thought I’d take a moment to tell you that I’ve missed you since the last ever episode of Cast On hit your earbuds last October. I’ve missed talking with you, […]



A sweater knitting story, in three acts.

Fri, 07 Nov 2014 12:34:51 +0000

ACT I: A truth universally acknowledged about sweater knitting, is that just-off-the-needles garments with fit issues are unlikely to be worn. It’s too big. That, my knitsibs, seems to be the general consensus. The sweater featured in Today’s Sweater, the one I talked (and talked and talked) about in Epic Bind Off, is just too […]

Episode 131: And the knitting is easy

Fri, 11 Jul 2014 21:47:15 +0000

In this episode: Plagued by migraine this week and feelinng summertime lazy, the intro waffles around a bit before coming to the point. After a brief whinge about being hot (which I’m allowed, because it’s summer and I’m menopausal) it all comes together with tales from the roof garden, the lazy person’s sock pattern, and […]

Episode 130: Coming Home

Mon, 30 Jun 2014 21:21:16 +0000

In this episode: I talk about Hannah Fettig’s Featherweight Cardigan, name some Welsh mountains and discuss what they have to do with my socks. I spend a lot of time talking about this thing I do with beads that solves a top-down sweater-knitting “problem” that nobody else in the world thinks is a problem. And […]

Wired!

Fri, 16 May 2014 10:13:13 +0000

It’s saying something when someone (and we’re not saying who) would rather spend a long weekend assembling Ikea bookshelves, than nip off for a weekend break in the beautiful city of Bath, with one’s beloved. But here’s the thing. Aaron, our electrician, has this week completed ALL the electrics-related tasks that have been on our […]



Ready for my close up

Fri, 09 May 2014 17:21:45 +0000

About this time last year I embarked upon a journey of home remodelling that was, quite frankly, both spectacularly ill-timed, and very poorly planned. We are still dealing with the fallout. To explain. No, there is too much… To sum up. I met some builders who were doing work on the house next door; I […]



Episode 129: Carcast

Sat, 03 May 2014 13:55:48 +0000

In this episode: This week I scour the internets for the perfect winter sock yarn, and find it in the Welsh countryside, ten miles from where I live. There’s a bit of musing on the merits of sock laundry, which leads me to discover the joy of knitting socks in pure unadulterated animal fibre. I […]
