In my latest YouTube video, I’m sharing what I’m up to at the moment, with finished objects, works-in-progress and my latest deigns for Knitvent 2021.

Don’t forget to like this video and subscribe to my channel; I’m working hard to try to add more videos and at this early stage on YouTube, every single view, like and subscription helps me so much and helps new knitters find me.

The Skyline Wrap was knit in Natural Fibre Art Lux Sock . This pattern is designed for an yarn advent calendar and the particular calendar I used is no longer available, but it would suit any set with at least 17 grams of 24 colours of fingering weight yarn ( or make your own advent set, you can see my tips here )

The latest pattern The Rose Cottage Cowl uses hand-dyed Aran merino 10-ply by Fibresmith . For any stash divers out there, you will need approximately 150g (249m/273yds) of Aran weight yarn.

The Fireside Sweater by Amber Allison (a lookalike to Camoron Diaz’s cardigan in The Holiday)

If you’re joining me for Knitvent this year, welcome! I’ll be doing a giveaway for the whole of Knitvent in Jan. 2022 so keep an eye on the Curious Handmade Ravelry group and on Instagram be sure to use the #knitvent2021
