Sheep and crow. Also seen on Dartmoor this morning.
I haven't shared much knitting lately because I've mostly been working on Secret Things! 💚💚💚 Here's one of them....I was lucky enough to receive an advance copy of @violaemily's stunning new book, Knits About Winter from @pompommag. I can scarcely believe how lovely it is: congratulations Emily and the Pom Pom team on this treasure of my library! While I want to cast on everything, I have settled myself with one small project to begin with, using some luminous deep stash yarn from @thelittlegreysheep (from my first ever Yarndale in 2014!) P.s. this is my favourite colour and I call it singing green
100% the best thing I saw in New York.
It feels like the right time of year for a change of direction... 🍃🍂🍃🍂🍃 Now that it has been officially announced, I can share my big decision: I have decided to leave @blackeryarns and pursue my own creative work again, full time. What does this mean? It means excitement, terror, mustering my courage and embracing all the different meanings of being kind to myself. It also means more podcasts, zines, books, knitwear designs, and who knows what else?! I am open to commissions, and look forward to hearing from you if you'd like to work on something together. Oh yeah, and all day every day with Jack 🐶👌
Brownie. Best friend.
Home. Also I switched my Etsy shop back on. Those of you who have been patiently waiting for signed books, you can find them there again now 😊
Earlier this week I went to @brooklyngeneralstore with @redhandledscissors and @molliejohanson. It was only while walking away we realised I had chosen Brooklyn-coloured yarn! 😂 I can't wait to knit this up into a jumper to remember this amazing trip. Thanks New York, see you soon!
I may not have won a Harvey Award, but I have celebrated many other victories this week. #fearoftrousers #sketch #sketchbook #newoutfit #outfitoftheday #drawing #illustration #eatingdisorderrecovery #sexualabuserecovery
New York details #newyork #NYC
So.... @molliejohanson and I went to explore New York Comic Con today, and my buddy Swatch was there! I can't believe I got to pet this sweet guy twice in one week. Also I bought myself a fabulous handmade hat with horns by @missfitthats because I felt far too sensible and slightly ridiculous in my tweed jacket. #moodnycc18 #nycc2018 #NYCC
I just had the privilege and delight of speaking on a @newyorkcomiccon panel discussion about comics and mental health in the New York Public Library. It might be the coolest thing I have ever done. #NYPL #nycc #nycc2018
Every time we meet in New York, @molliejohanson and I pose in front of the embroidery hoop wall @purlsoho ... swipe for this year's photo 😊😊
