Mile after mile of fabric, as far as the eye can see.

My suitcase is all packed.


Want to see what about six months worth of work looks like in my house?

And that’s just the bags.

To cut to the chase here’s what I will have for you this weekend at Yarndale. Lots and lots and lots of choice, that’s what!

Sock pouches, 22 of them:


Large pouches, 14 thereof:

8 Giant pouches if big projects are your thing:


A dozen rather lovely – if I do say so myself- Japanese Knot Knitting Bags. These are reversible too, don’t forget, with patterned fabric on both sides.


Then we have the strappy and hooky pouches. These now come in three sizes. Large and Giant hooky/strappy pouches were my most requested custom order item at Unravel so I’ve got a few made up as a sort of trial run. Here’s how the sizes compare:

Left to right, that’s a Sock, Large and Giant. Perfect for knitting on the go.

I will have half a dozen of the sock sized ones:

And five of the Giant ones:


If you have eagle eyes you may have spotted some of the amazing geeky fabrics I’m rolling out for this show. There’s a couple I haven’t had before. Check it out:

Yes, that is Vera, Jayne Cobb’s very favourite gun right there in the middle. But this one is my personal favourite:

Damn straight we’re still flying.

Also got a few Dr Who pouches and other bits as well.  Ran out of lining fabric at about the same time as I lost the will to live, so there’ s not quite as many as I would like, but hey! I’m pretty sure you’ll find something to please you in that mammoth pile.

In addition I’ve got pattern rolls and organisers:

Needle rolls and envelopes:

and the usual plethora of stitch markers which I haven’t photographed because there are just too many. You can about catch a glimpse of them in the very top photo but it’s the usual mish mash of cute fruit, tiny food and general weird and eccentric objects transformed into shiny things for your knitting and crocheting delectation.


So there you have it. That’s what approximately six months of hard work looks like.

Don’t forget, Yarndale will be my second to last show so a good chance to get to see the shiny wares in person. Really excited about it, it looks like a really well organised show with tonnes of exciting vendors, workshops and activities in a beautiful location.

And after that, just one more show to go!
