Pixies again

So how are those two pixies coming along, I hear you ask. Well, as luck would have it, Ariel and Tinder both wanted to show you their new clothes today so I had to get my camera out and catch them while the sun was behind a cloud....

This is Ariel.

And this is Tinder

The sparkles on the red yarn show up well here. The yellow lace holes are worked in embroidery silk and a very small crochet hook.

A little tidy up

From now, all items for sale will be featured on a separate blog to this one, with links to my Etsy shop where the items can be purchased safely online. I have removed the pages from this blog so as to keep it focused on what we do.

World Wide Knit In Public Day 2012

This year, World Wide Knit In Public Day is actually running for a whole week (why knit once when you can knit 7 times?!). So if you see more folks than usual clicking their sticks together in the open air, why not stop and say hello, admire their work, and maybe have a go yourself.

Tieing holes together

Which actually might have made a better name for the Ravelry group I've started!

That's what this post is about. I've been a member of Ravelry for a while, it's a knitting and crochet resource website with about 1 million members worldwide, and a fabulous place for inspiration, patterns, materials, and general yarn-related chatter. There are a couple of prison-ish groups there, but nothing specifically for those with incarcerated loved ones. Until now :)

The group is called Ladies in Waiting drop in if you fancy a space where you can talk about your ups and downs, with prisons or  yarn crafts.
