My Etsy store has now been closed.
My Craftsy store still exists, but only stocks free patterns.
I hope that these closures are temporary, but only time will tell.
For the time being, my patterns will only be available from (see link above).

Thank you for your patience in this time of transition

A Faulty Faultline

While I was away on holiday, I did a spot of knitting.

It wasn't exactly plain sailing (my knitting rarely is) but it was worth it in the end!

The yarn is a lovely 4 ply merino from the talented Rachel at Squeeful Yarns. (yup, yet another independent yarn dyer that I've discovered!)

The pattern is Faultline by Gabriella Henry.

I must admit that it was slow going... I'm not the best at knitting lace (even if the pattern says its easy!)

I tried pushing my luck and adding two extra repeats of the pattern... I weighed my yarn, it should have been possible... it wasn't!

I tried to rip it back to halfway, dropped half the stitches in the process and had to start again from scratch- humph!

It was probably best that I did, as knitting it up the second time led to far fewer wonky bits and a far better finished effect.

Once I was finished, I realised it was a bit on the small side. I reread the pattern and discovered that it said that if you were in doubt you should use a larger knitting needle rather than a smaller one (oops!).

I did some pretty vigorous blocking and it looks pretty good to me! Love the yarn, love the colour, love the pattern- oh happy me!


  1. Looks great! And good timing for finishing a shawl/scarf. Brrr.

  2. Gorgeous colour, gorgeous pattern, gorgeous result! Well done, it looks super lovely Juliet!

  3. Oh and do link up if you feel inclined ;) xx

  4. Very pretty! I like your new header too.

  5. What a lovely colour. I bet that is something you will wear a lot.

  6. Big bummer that you had to start again!! But so worth it! it is gorgeous and definitely on my list for a friends gift :))
