New Facebook Knitting Group, Knitting-Naturally!


Hello friends:)

My lovely friend Dana and I have started a new Facebook knitting group called Knitting-Naturally! It’s a wonderful platform for knitters to chat, share photos of their projects, ask questions etc…

This is the group description:

Do you love knitting? …and natural yarns? Then share the love here! Share photos of your work, ask knitting questions, tell us about knitting events, your favourite yarns, tools, notions….
There are some rules though,
1. Be nice
2. No spam
3. Designers work hard to make a living, please only share links to patterns.
4. Admins reserve the right to delete any posts that break the rules
I hope we see you over on the group and don’t forget to say hi!

Moulin Rouge Cowl Pattern is Live

Moulin Rouge Cowl Collage1

The Moulin Rouge Cowl test knit is finished and these are a few of the cowls that have been knitted up by my wonderful test knitters! Aren’t they lovely? The pattern is available on Ravelry in my shop.

Here’s a little more information about this cowl:

The Moulin Rouge Cowl is knitted in a Nurturing Fibres dk singles yarn. It’s exceptionally soft and luxurious. Any suitable double knitting yarn can be used for this project. If you would like to make a yarn comparison with the NF yarn before you purchase yarn or use yarn from your stash, look here, Another yarn that can be used is the Madelinetosh dk.
I’ve knitted this cowl with a 4mm circular needle and used just over 2,5 x 50 gram skeins. total = 126g

44 inches in circumference, 5.5 inches high
Each pattern repeat (6 rounds) is approx just over half an inch high.

Have a lovely day!


Joining with Nicole today.

Moulin Rouge Cowl Test Knit

Kate's Moulin Rouge Cowl Test Knit

Lise's Moulin Rouge Cowl Test Knit


The Moulin Rouge Cowl test knit has been going well and such beautiful cowls are being knitted, I just had to share them here with you today! If you would like to follow along or even sign up as a test knitter, you can visit my group here.

I’ve also just finished spinning up my Wensleydale roving for the Tour de Fleece, it’s such an easy fibre to spin.

Do you use coconut oil? I’ve been reading up about it and it sounds truly wonderful, especially regarding dementia, Alzheimers and as a general healing remedy! I’ve started adding it to my coffee and using it on my skin. I’d love to hear any feedback you have if you use it.

Our temperatures have risen slightly here in SA but I believe we are in for another freezing spell!!

Oh yes, I’ve only just started using an e-reader, this is all so new for me:) Anyway Erin is going to read from it too and I just figured out how to download books! Yay! I still love to hold actual books in my hands but occasionally I can simply download one immediately and read straight away! Technology is amazing at times!

Have a lovely weekend, I can’t wait to see your links!
