Tidal Socks KAL

17th May 2019 1 min read No Comments

I’ve lost my knitting mojo.

Please let me know if you have any tips for reviving it because I’ve barely knit a stitch for the past couple of weeks! This is a recurring theme for me around this time of year. Just a sniff of summer and my desire to knit just withers.

Instead, these sunny evenings have brought on a frenzy of spring cleaning. Rummaging through a basket during one of those sessions, I stumbled across the swatches I made for the Tidal socks.

I’d forgotten how much fun I had designing these. It was lovely to spend a few moments remembering the process and enjoying the textures and yarn again. It made me yearn for a pair of my own… especially since the sample pair barely make it past my ankles!

I can usually rely on socks to kickstart my knitting. They’re small and portable enough to be great for warm weather knitting, so I’m toying with the idea of doing a summer Tidal socks KAL.

What do you think – are you in? Leave a comment below or let me know on instagram if you’re interested!

  • Who loves a giant pompom? πŸ‘
β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €
I seriously cannot get enough of this enormous pompom. And I'm also pretty excited to share the hat and cowl that it's attached to...
β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €
I've been working with @theyarncollective and @lovecraftsknitting on their latest Lost in Translation collection, which launched today. Visit the link in my profile to see more ☝️
β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €
The Spirits and Sprites set uses The Yarn Collective Bloomsbury DK, which I'm now pretty obsessed with.
β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €
The hat would be a great intro to stranded knitting if you fancy giving it a go!
β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €
I'm so thrilled to have a design in this collection. Go check it out - there are some absolutely stunning designs by @sachikobee @thepetiteknitter and @francescahughesknitwear
β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €
Let me know what your favourite is! It might help me jump start my knitting mojo, which is still conspicuously absent...

  • What are your tips for kick starting your knitting mojo?
β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €
Lay them on me, because mine has taken a hike!
β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €
I was rummaging around in one of my baskets the other day and found the swatches I made for my Tidal socks. The sample size is too small for my huge feet so I think I might make another pair just for me. Hopefully it'll help to kick start my knitting again! Anyone interested in a KAL?

  • I'm all about lazy weekends at the moment. Pottering about, watering the plants, endless cups of tea while I knit and watch black and white films. Today I made it to lunchtime before I even thought about getting out of my PJs πŸ™ˆ
β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €
In knitting news, the colourwork project is off the needles and blocking cozily in front of the fire, and I'm back onto my lovely, mossy Tender jumper πŸ’š

  • Thursday night on the sofa - strawberry ice cream, breaking into a new skein of yarn, and a little bit of colourwork βœ¨πŸ’•

How's your Thursday looking?

  • Happy Friday folks! These weeks are flying by, but each one is bringing a little more sunshine and a little more spring 🌞🌷
β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €
My Tender Jumper is still bimbling along, but I spent a few moments at lunchtime, sitting in a sunny corner and playing with some beautiful new yarn. As I looked up I noticed that the yarn matches my plant pots - it's always good to have a colour scheme πŸ˜‚

  • Lemon and sugar πŸ‹ or Nutella 🍫 on your pancakes? It's a close call, but I think lemon and sugar might be my fave!
β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €
I've been trying to ease off the knitting lately after I started to get some RSI in my hand and wrists. After a week without my needles (it was HARD! πŸ™ˆ) I couldn't resist casting on something new with this beautiful, soft sage green. It's the Tender jumper by @bmandarines and those little chevrons are so addictive! I keep wanting to work just one more row...

  • An #accidentallywesanderson moment after the sun melted away the fog.
β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €
When I was small I wanted to live in a lighthouse and sleep in bunk beds like they did in the Portland Bill stories. Where did you dream of living when you were a kid?
