Clothkits is back and looking mighty fine!

has been rebanded. Originally from the 1970's, Clothkits provide a pre-printed, fully instructed and fully equiped 'kit' and all you have to do is sew it together. Cheating - maybe but super awesome prints and cute stuff for kids. I'm in!

Rob Ryan (see previous Outcast posts) designs an adult skirt for Clothkits.

ALSO - they are running a competition to design a Clothkit dress. See here for more info.

How about this.....

here is a company Knitting out Load who make audio books on "the best of knitting literature" to listen to whilst you knit, weave or spin. Here are some examples:

*The History of Hand Knitting by Richard Rutt

*Knitting Memories: Reflections on the Knitter's Life edited by Lela Nargi

Packing up, ready to go


I am setting my priorities right and packing the vitals for my trip away - I am sure Emma is doing exactly the same at this very moment. Don't forget there is no knit night this week although the 3B's is there, reayd with drinks if any of you decide too meet up.

Will miss your nattering and will be back ready too knit on the 16th, maybe I should pack something else other than knitting?

In the meantime look at this wonderful family trunkt project

Knitting in your own world

Get so caught up in your knitting that you don't realise what is going on around you? Or maybe just so used to your kids mad antics that you don't bat an eyelid to the mad dancing happening in front of you. Check out this youtube. It did make me smile...

Thanks to IanT for finding this clip.

Eye candy - website of the week

I know we mainly share knitting sites and links but I just wanted to share this website Mister Rob with you. I am a big fan of Rob Ryan's work. I love his intricate paper cut work and elaborate screenprints. Enjoy.
