Pete Doherty knitting on stage? Snotty yarn, well it is Wednesday

Ready for your weekly dose of wacky, wild and whimsical Wednesdayness?

As I mentioned previously, my pattern Bones became available to download on Ravelry at the weekend. Whilst working on the pattern template we had some fun with one of the images, although it didn’t make the final cut, I hoped it might make you smile…………………..

In other news from the Knittyverse

Sad news hit my inbox this week, The Making Spot will be closing it’s virtual doors at the end of September. Please pop over and download any freebie patterns you had been meaning to acquire before the 30th September and make the most of their great tutorial videos before they disappear.

Unfortunately, this means that my patterns will no longer be available to download from the Making Spot. Good news is, I am working flat out to get them up for sale on Ravelry. If you hurry over to The Making Spot you can buy my Halloween Gift Collection for a fraction of the price you will pay for the Handmade Halloween magazine they are featured in. Don’t forget to purchase my Christmas Tree Decorations Collection whilst you are there (cheeky?)

Breaking news!

As I sat here writing this entry, my little sister called me to say she had just seen Pete Doherty, playing with Babyshambles at The Engine Shed in Lincoln. “So what?!” I hear you say…….HE WAS KNITTING. It would seem that Pete appeared on stage, with what looked like a knitted union jack, he seemed to be casting it off before throwing it the audience. All of this was seen from a distance, can anyone confirm this story?
