I am pleased to be able to release my latest pattern, Morganite, a design that has been a long and meticulous time in the making. Named for a complex but robust gemstone, Morganite is the perfect hat project for combining a number of simple knitting […]
Recently we have had a bit of a tough time at Castle Codd, with life throwing a few stones at our windows and some of them leaving damage, and one of the things that’s still affecting us in a number of ways is the loss […]
I have been busying away behind the scenes recently putting together a new pattern template for upcoming pattern releases as well as to allow me to start the process of re-formatting and re-writing some older patterns. The new pattern format is far cleaner and all information is easier to locate. The process has not been without some difficulty. Despite being a very careful adherent to the ‘save often’ mantra, I managed to lose hours of template work when the file I was working on became corrupted irreversibly and there were no recoverable versions that I could open. I put on an extra pair of lucky socks and started again and now have two patterns ready to go.
The first is for a design I am very excited for and which is due to enter test-knitting next week. I’ve been working on it a long while and both the knitting and the finished item have been a pleasure. The other, however, is the first of the re-formatted patterns which were initially formatted to fit with the branding of my previous website, Trilobite!
If you fancy a peek at the bright new patterns, Trilobite is available at 50% off for the next week, ending 31st August. If you fancy knitting a little prehistoric friend of your very own, simply click here to automatically apply the discounted price to the pattern.
