Yesterday I bought a dress! I gave up on knitting it because it was becoming less fun and more stressful. I thought ‘oh maybe I’ll just go have a little look at dresses’ I made an appointment and tried on 3 dresses. The 3rd dress I tried on was the one! I couldn’t believe it. It was so perfect. It’s not the kind of dress I expected to wear but it just blew me away and made me so excited to be a bride. I had to buy it. Before that moment I was excited about the wedding, only because I get to marry the man I love, but now I’m excited to be a beautiful bride too. I’ve even changed plans around a bit to make more of an entrance on the day and I decided to be traditional and Tim can’t see me until the big reveal. I think it will be so much fun 😆☺️ Before we had planned to get ready at home together but now I’m getting ready with my girlfriends like a proper bride 👰🏼 It’s amazing what a dress can do to a girl! I’m in full bride mode now. Anyway, that’s why I’m doing a surprise sale! Now that I’m not feverishly knitting my dress I have some time to get some yarn listed and I thought a sale would be great because I want to share the fun and love I’m feeling right now with all of you! Also, my dress was super expensive 😂😭💕 #iambrokenow #saletime There is so much beautiful yarn here and I’m putting together some cute kits too. It’s at 6pm Melbourne time. 🙌🏻

I have 40 cinerea eucalyptus trees. Yes.. 40! (I’ve potted 24 so far) a lovely birthday gift from Laura @goldenloops. She saw me eyeing them off at Bendigo Sheep & Wool Show and bought me a whole punnet of seedlings 🌱 😂. I’m thinking of doing some sneaky planting of some of them around the neighbourhood or giving them as gifts to friends and relatives that plan on living in the same place for a long time and then asking nicely if I can come and harvest them later 😂. I have 2 Australian Indigo bushes, and one Cherry Candle bush- also a birthday gift. These were from @wagtailknits my mother in law to be. Tim and I are renting so I have to keep everything in pots for now but I’m pretty excited to nurture these and then plant them in the ground one day when we buy a house/ farm for all my trees 😂. 🌱🌱🌱🌱🌱🌱🌱🌱🌱 maybe some 🐑!

The colours of Australia 🌿 These are 5 skeins of @whitegumwool, each dyed with a different species of gum tree. There still over 900 species for me to try. What an adventure that awaits! Tim has said that the smell of eucalyptus in the kitchen was nice at first but its getting to be too much now so I have to move this project to my studio. (Edit. I recently found out that you shouldn’t dye eucalyptus in the kitchen, even if you aren’t using chemicals because the vapours can be dangerous). The good news is, I might try doing some bigger batches in my giant pots at my studio, so these could be making their way to the shop soon! Let me know if that’s something you’d be interested in. I’ve been getting so excited about it that I forgot to see what you guys think. 🌿🐨 I’m happy about the prospect of more foraging. It’s great exercise and Purl loves it. Got to get out and about more to stay healthy with such a sedentary passion like knitting.

I’m having so much fun experimenting with Eucalyptus dyeing. I like to forage for fallen branches when I walk Purl on our way home from the studio. I found a great resource from the CSIRO for classifying eucalypts. There are over 900 species so it’s tricky! I have to take note of lots of aspects of the tree that they came from and measure the leaves and characterise the seeds, branches ect until the program has enough info to give a match. I’ve successfully identified these two as eucalyptus Polyanthemos and Symphyomyrtus. You can see my stories for some behind the scenes of dyeing with them and I’ll post photos of the final results soon. They are looking gorgeous!! 🌿 It amazes me just how many different colours you can gets from these trees and the best thing is, you don’t need to use any chemical modifiers. They don’t need a mordant because they are rich in tannins. I’m getting so involved in this and having such a great time nerding out. Purl is enjoying the longer walks too 🌿🐶

Do you swatch? Be honest. I often don’t but it’s only because I mainly knit with We Love Knitting yarn and the same needles that I’m familiar with and know my gauge off by heart. If it’s a new yarn or needles I would swatch 100%

Thank you to everyone else, that couldn’t attend, and are waiting so patiently for a shop update while I have been busy getting ready for this weekend. I’m sorry you have to wait, and for the FOMO, but don’t worry... there will be yarn in the online shop again soon, I promise. A huge thank you to those of you that made pre orders in the last update and had to wait a lot longer than usual for your yarn. You are all such wonderful and supportive, understanding people. Last but not least, thank you to this months sock club members for giving me a bit of extra time to get your yarn to you. It’s ready to send out, I just need a bit of a rest and then I’ll get to packing and sending. I appreciate your patience, support and thank you 🙏💕💕💕💕

I’ve been waiting for this moment for so long. My #siricardigan is off the needles and onto the blocking mats! I usually give my sweaters a few wears before I wash and block them because I’m so excited to try them out but this one is about 10 months in progress so I figure I can wait a little longer. I also want to see it looking 👌🏻 after all the work I put into it 😂 I have never ripped anything out and reknit it so many times. Usually when things don’t work out they wind up in my sad pile of unfinished knits. I couldn’t have that happening to this cardigan though. I was so determined to get it right because the pattern and yarn are just so beautiful. I’ll be wearing this on Saturday at @soulcraftfestival and if you are coming along, feel free to touch me like only a knitter would understand 😂 It’s the softest, most beautiful thing on earth. @whitegumwool is the most amazing yarn I’ve ever worked with and I’m so honoured to have a garment made from it. I will have about 60 skeins of this wonderful wool that I hand dyed in lots of pretty colours at #soulcraftfestival and then afterwards I will list some in the shop. I’m sorry there hasn’t been a shop update for a while, I wasn’t able to manage festivals, sock club and shop updates. It’s a lot of work. I’ve been a little overwhelmed and struggling with my workload as well as my new ideas and work I want to do but can’t yet.. I think after Soulcraft I’ll take a few days off. Then, it will be time to get ready for Bendigo sheep show, but after that it’s wedding planning and relaxing time!! I’ll also try to get regular shop updates happening again once festival season is over. Thanks for sticking with me everyone! x

Hello everyone! Sorry I’ve been absent lately. I’ve been so busy keeping everything going behind the scenes and getting ready for @soulcraftfestival I’ve had a lot on my mind about the direction of We Love Knitting lately and I haven’t really been able to speak about it because my thoughts aren’t fully formed and I don’t know how to articulate it all but I’ll try my best to give you an idea about what’s going on. So, I’ve been thinking a lot about locally sourced wool, sustainable and ethical farming practices, minimal and safe processing- eg. no superwash and supporting the Australian wool industry in the best way I can. I don’t have a solid plan yet but I’m going to be moving towards ticking all of these boxes. I have a background in environmental science and when I left that career behind, I kind of just stopped thinking about environmental and social issues for a while. I had a job as an environmental manager so I know how to write and implement an environmental management system for companies. I think it’s time to do this for WLK. It previously didn’t cross my mind because I have such a small scale operation compared to companies I’ve worked for in the past but the more I’ve been talking to others in the industry, the more I realise that this is important. I’ve been getting more and more uncomfortable about certain things like the superwash process- working conditions and environmental impact, but how do I talk about this when my livelihood depends on it right now. Also I don’t want to offend or appear to be judging any other wool companies, indie dyers or users of superwash yarn.. I’m still using it too. It’s fantastic wool, I just think that moving forward I need to consider the environment and social issues more. My first step in this direction is to stock @whitegumwool. It’s from a single farm in Australia that uses ethical and environmentally sustainable farming practices, and oh boy is it beautiful wool! It’s 17 micron merino.! Yes, you have to treat it carefully because it’s not superwash, but it’s worth it!! I’ll still be stocking my other bases for now but will be focused on continual improvement so eventually some may be phased out

So I made a YouTube channel because I needed a place to upload videos that I was making for my sock club. I thought I’d make them available to everyone because they might be useful to more people but I had no idea they would become popular!

I thought I’d make them available to everyone because they might be useful to more people but I had no idea they would become popular! One of my videos has almost 1000 views and I only just started the channel this year. I’m so excited about this because I love teaching knitting and I enjoy making videos so I think I will make lots more! Any requests? Leave them here! I’ll do whatever I have time for after I do the sock club videos 😊💕If you want to find me on YouTube I’m We Love Knitting. You can also get there by swiping up on the link in my stories. You can subscribe if you want to stay in the loop for new videos.

I’ve been seeing some great posts from the #wlksockclub2018 and I’m loving all of the projects in this yarn 💜💙 Hey Sock Club, there’s still time to enter the March photo comp. In case you missed the memo, the photo comps run for 2 months as standard now. The April comp runs for 3 months though and is double the prize. I hope to see you all enter!! So to recap- there’s still a $50 yarn voucher up for grabs for the March comp and a $100 voucher for the April comp. All you have to do to enter is use the yarn for that month in any project you like, snap a photo and use the hashtag #wlksockclub2018 Also in case you missed it there’s a tutorial on my YouTube channel that has some tips for taking great photos 👍🏻 If you aren’t a member and want to join, there are places available now for June

I made this tutorial for the sock club because we have an awesome photo competition and I want everyone to enter!! It’s on my YouTube channel, available to everyone, you don’t have to be in the sock club to watch. We’d love to have you if you want to join though, there are 5 new spots available for May. Be quick though, It’s closing tomorrow .

Hands up if you ever knit something beautiful and then you took a photo of it but the photo didn’t do it justice? 🙌🏻 It’s such a shame because you just want to show the world your gorgeous knitting but your photos are 💩😂 .

I’ve been working on improving my photography over the past few years, I’m by no means an expert but I’ve shared some tips and tricks that I use. There’s a link to the video in stories 😊

Looking forward to the rest of the pattern. It’s by @hannemetteraae. In other news, the April sock club emails are about to go out and there is a tutorial on how to take great photos of your knitting. It will be useful because there is a photo comp coming up with double the usual prize! Oh and the March #wlksockclub2018 photo comp is still going too so if you haven’t entered yet there’s still time! Sock Club, you gotta be in it to win it!
