SewBrum Swap Kalle

The 2023 SewBrum meet-up was the tenth time the event has taken place, so I decided to make it a special one. The whole event took place in Moseley Village, home to Guthrie & Ghani, and I rented a second venue, Moseley Exchange, to give us more space. Across the […]

Fairytale Cape Revisited

The one downside of the knitted spider web yoke I wore yesterday, is that you can’t easily wear a jacket over it without it bunching up. As we were about to leave the house for a walk, I remembered that I had a cape hanging in the wardrobe, which I
