  • Next Drop -In Wed 2nd May 10am-12.30pm Posted on 19 February 2018

    If you need a little help with any of my knitting patterns, drop in for a chat. If you are tempted to purchase my patterns and have some questions to ask, come along and see some finished sample hand knits of my designs, and I will try to answer any questions you may have. Knitting Kits, printed knitting patterns and wool will also be available to purchase on the day. Just to let you know.....I will not be at Wymers for the April Drop -In morning, as I am taking a little break over Easter.

  • A calming project 25 June 2016 | View comments

  • With the momentous and very frightening changes that the UK is embarking on, I have been in a complete state of shock this last couple of days.

    I had a strong need to stop what I was working on, and knit a blanket.  At the time I didn't think too deeply about it, but on reflection, I think this was subconsciously my comforting 'security blanket'.  I have had to sit and knit it at every possible opportunity over the last couple of days. I needed a long comforting project that would take quite a few days to complete.  A project that once designed and on my needles, would need some concentration, but the repetition would require no further decision-making.  I find this type of project clears my mind and puts me into a calm almost medative state.

    Being creative has pulled me through some very sad and difficult times over the years.  I really do recommend it. If life just seems too much to cope with, pick up a pencil, a paintbrush, some knitting needles, and create something....it is very calming.

    Here is my security blanket which is growing by the minute!

    I hope to launch this knitting pattern in the next couple of weeks, once my blanket is finished.

    Take care

    Linda Whaley
