Inside, Inside Crochet

Thought I should probably put up some pictures of the hairpin lace crocheted top I designed for the first issue of Inside Crochet that I edited. I love this top, inspiration came from Pringle's Spring/Summer collection.

vintage at goodwood

Last weekend I had the pleasure of visiting the Vintage at Goodwood festival to teach a few workshops and soak up the atmosphere, which was slightly damp at times, unfortunately for my sandals!
But when the sun shone, the Sussex countryside was glorious and the vintage style surroundings were great fun.
Here are some pics, if you didn't get the chance to go this year, book up for next, it was lovely! Although make sure you dress up - I made the mistake of thinking it was a typical festival and (shock! horror!) forgot my heels!!

let's knit

I have a new pattern in the latest Let's Knit. Just right for the summer I think and I have got it back already and have worn it, which is a bonus!

Inside Crochet

After two long and veryveryveryveryvery busy months the launch of the now monthly, re-designed Inside Crochet is here! And for those of you who don't know, I am the new editor!
Fancy that, eh? L'il ol me, editing a magazine. I am very excited! And over the next few months, I shall be adding to the new look of the magazine, developing the new website which is coming very soon, working on styling, getting in new designers to fill all the projects we shall need now we are monthly and basically getting very little sleep indeed!
Oh well, things could be worse, I could hate getting up for work in the morning!
If you are a crocheter, do let me know what you would like to see featured in the magazine, if you want to talk anything crochet, you can find me at

let's twist again!

So Happy I could dance!
I got my jumper back, finally, from its travels around the world with Twist Collective and it is softer and cosier than I recall - the Frog Tree merino is such beautiful yarn.
Almost can't wait for colder weather so I can wear it!
If you like it as much as I do, you can buy it here
