Jem on tour!

It’s been a busy couple of weeks!

I’ve really enjoyed catching up with knitters who I’ve met before at workshops, shows and events and it’s been super lovely to meet some new people who have just discovered my patterns or are new to knitting.

A special bleat out to everyone who has brought along their knits from my patterns to events over the last couple of weeks! I love seeing your creations and how things look in different yarns/shades. I often forget to take photos so feel free to give me a nudge!

The busy season kicked off with afternoon tea at Black Sheep Wools. I had a lovely time and you can watch my pre-cake chat with Sara below. Apologies if you can’t hear me very well – there was some background noise and I’m a bit quieter than Sara (no offence Sara!).

And then it was Yarndale! We had a bigger stand this year which gave us room to dance and also meant the slightly leaky roof wasn’t a problem because I could keep things away from the drips. Thank you everyone who came to say hello – I hope you’re enjoying your kits, yarn packs and books!

This week I took the Cosy Alpaca Knits over to Wales for a little book party at Yarn O’clock in Mold. A lovely customer brought along her beautiful Deer Cushion, Haggis Hedgehog and Smudge the Cat to show me – all knitted from Cute Comfort Knits.

I love Smudge as a ginger tom cat! And Haggis works perfectly as a pin cushion. All of the Cute Comfort Knits patterns are now also available individually on my Ravelry and Love Knitting shops.

Looking forward to seeing more of you at events and workshops over the next few weeks!

Afternoon Tea at Black Sheep Wools

Who fancies joining me for afternoon tea at Black Sheep Wools?

On Thursday 19th September I will be bringing along all the samples from my new book (launching in  August) for a relaxed afternoon of knitting and chatting. I’d love to see things that you’ve made from my patterns so please feel free to bring them for show and tell!

I love September with it’s early Autumn/back to school vibes – I always want to buy new stationary and plan new projects! So it’s the perfect time for knit-in.

We will work on an exclusive mini-project based on a pattern from my new book – so don’t forget your needles!
