string

i do believe i am a glow-worm.

Plan of Action:

1. Print out this PDF.
2. Cut out the quotation cards (I recommend a ruler & craft knife).
3. String up some ribbon on your wall or corkboard.
4. Peg the cards onto the string.
5. Be inspired!

So here is my slightly Victorian motivation wall with a preponderance of Thoreau and Gibran. This is a project I’ve had in mind for such a long time & it’s almost embarrassingly easy to execute. I just pasted a few quotes into a Pages template et voila!

Sometimes a sentence is all it takes TO DO IT.

These would look darling in a nursery or a craft studio. I know, because I have them up on my wall right now! They depict a sort of “water cycle” for knitting. :) It’s raining outside > you make yourself a nice hot cup of tea or coffee > and then it’s time to knit!

If you don’t have any room on your own walls, they’d make a great last-minute gift for a baby shower (pun intended) or a knitting friend. You could print them out & frame them before you gift them, or for the more tech-savvy, how about putting the files on a pretty flash drive / USB stick? I think that would make such a cool present! The prints come in blue, pink, and green (in case the baby’s sex isn’t known yet), and I’ve included the original SVG file, so you can actually make them any colour you like!


The ZIP download includes:

  • PDF file for prints in Blueberry
  • PDF file for prints in Raspberry
  • PDF file for prints in Green Tea
  • SVG file of all prints + alternative colours & frames
  • All prints are 5″ x 7″ to fit a standard photo frame (2 fit on an A4 sheet)
  • All prints are vector & can be scaled as desired

Honestly, I’ve lost count of how many times I’ve promised to knit for a baby, only to find that they were suddenly racing towards their 2nd birthday. Oops! Have you done this? Or if you’re one of the amazingly organised knitters who haven’t, please tell us, how do you manage it? Luckily, printing these out is 100% faster than knitting anything. I’m glad I’ll have some backup from now on. :)

Looking at the lamb, I’m reminded of this poem, which was one of my favourites when I was little (and still is, actually):

There Were Three Little Sheep

There were two little sheep,
And three little sheep,
Came to see why baby
Wouldn’t go to sleep.

They peeped in the window,
And they entered at the door,
And their hard little hoofs
Tap-tapped on the floor.

Said the first little sheep,
‘O hush-a-bye-bye!
You will waken all the lambs
In the fold if you cry!’

But the third little sheep
Never said a word,
For baby cuddled up
Like a tired little bird.

Then the three little sheep,
In the turning of a pin,
Tap-tapped out,
As they tap-tapped in.

Hush-a-bye baby,
Hush-a-bye-bye!
Hush-a-bye baby,
Bye-bye-bye…

–Mary Gilmore


Aww. I wish I could be in Wales over the spring; it was one of my greatest delights to take the train from Shrewsbury to Aberystwyth, and watch the new lambs hopping away to their mothers. Have a great weekend, knitters! Time to Knit!

Knitters’ Valentines

KnitLove vol. 2 has been updated! I added a brand new card design (‘You’re my Knight of Knit’), a liner for the envelope, and some stickers to seal it, and took some new photos, because I wasn’t too happy with the old ones.

The collection was originally designed for Valentine’s Day, but I think the cards would bring a smile at any time of year. Besides, you can always use them as notelets, if you don’t fold them up. Volume 2 costs £4, but shhh, blog readers can use this extra-special discount code to get £1 off: VALENTINE11. All because I ♥ you, knitters! :) Happy Valentine’s Day!
