Or maybe you’ve decided that your 4 year old son’s baby cardigan could become a lovely hat and … More Recycling Yarn – The Tutorial
I’ve made a few projects this year using yarn that was previously something else, like Saoirse’s Lush cardigan and her Owlet sweater. Some of the yarn I recycled came from knits that no longer fit or were no longer worn. Others came from projects that I knit at the start of my knitting adventures, … More Recycling Yarn…some thoughts
I always have a little giggle to myself when I hear someone mention that knitting season in back. Knitting season? What is this crazy talk of knitting being seasonal? It’s a concept that doesn’t quite register with me, although in Ireland, we rarely get the kind of summers that include a lot of summer-like weather. The … More Last of the Summer WIPs!
After a few hectic days of last minute Back to School preparations, we were all set for Saoirse to go back to school on Tuesday.

Having a hard time getting her to take out the knitting on holidays though even though we’ve had a couple of rainy days. The … More The week in pictures
Sometimes I feel like I haven’t actually knitted that much, but when reviewing my WIP’s and FO’s since the last blog I’ve come to the conclusion that I’m clearly delusional. I have quite a few projects, finished and in progress to show you this month. Bonny and Thistle which I mentioned in my previous post … More What’s Peeko Crafting? (And a question for you)
I’ve been beavering away here at camp Peeko for the last few weeks but despite an increasing busy schedule I’ve managed to keep my goal of making time every day for personal knitting and I’m really enjoying it. Not only am I getting through more projects than ever, I’m getting more and more immersed in … More What’s going on? – WIP’s, FO’s, Plans and Yarnie Goodness

Things have been a bit hectic here lately and it doesn’t look set to calm down until the end of May. Between Saoirse’s stage school rehearsals and performances, music school rehearsals and impending performances, the business course I started I feel like I haven’t stopped since the middle of April. All this going on has led to … More WIP’s and a hectic schedule!
