Colour Coordinates

I am a knitting Filofaxing  fanatic … so I couldn’t resist knitting a cosy sleeve for my week old Filofax Original.

Since posting a photo of my Filofax FO (finished object) on Facebook and Instagram,  I’ve had several requests for the pattern, which I named Colour Coordinates for the wide range of hues in the Filofax family and the coordinating colourways in yarn that you will find in two of my favourite LYS (local yarn shops), The Constant Knitter and This is Knit.

I used the purple hues in my yarn stash to knit a sleeve to protect it from the elements of my handbag.

Colour Coordinates is now available as a free pattern on Ravelry.

I would love to hear from you and what colour coordinate your chose for your Filofax.

A day out for the Filofax…

Socially knitworking comes naturally to me and when I discovered the existence of the Filofax community, fellow Filofaxer,  A and I set the wheels in motion to plan and organise, FilofaxIE and the first Dublin meet up.

We came from all over Dublin, Waterford and Portland  (the one in the USA)

As in Philofaxy Meet Up tradition, we stacked our well loved planners for its photo op.

It was a lovely afternoon meeting others who are passionate about planners, pens and paper!

On my way home I stopped along the Canal to soak up some sun rays…

… jot down a few notes ; )

Overall, it was a good day out for the Filofax and my latest FO

Welcome to my brand new weblog. I am not new to the blogsphere as I have been blogging since 2006 mainly from a knitter’s perspective.

I am also an online social butterfly on Facebook, Instagram, Ravelry and Twitter.
