Following the Wool Walk to Yarndale.
Is there any season we knitters enjoy more than autumn? That slow drop in temperatures, the crispness in the air, sends us all running for our stash. We’re eager to find something new and snuggly to cast on and then settle in with a cuppa as the light starts to fade earlier and earlier in the evenings.
With The Great London Yarn Crawl and Yarndale already over (and I had a fantastic time at both – check my Instagram if you don’t believe me!), there are still many events to help us knitters celebrate and the autumn calendar is chock full of them. I thought it might be helpful to do a little round up: Continue reading
Pen & Ink
I’m so excited to share my new Inklings hat and cowl set with you. I released them this morning, and Pen & Ink is already in the top 10 and storming up the hot list!
The strands of yarn look like they have been inked over the top of each other. This makes the designs ideal for gorgeous semi-solid colours. Shall we get ready for Autumn? Continue reading
Team Shetland – thank you ALL for such a special day.
We had an absolute blast on Saturday, making our way around the Great London Yarn Crawl. Team Shetland visited Wild and Woolly, Knit with Attitude, Fringe, and The Village Haberdashery. We even managed to win the crawl quiz, though that was due to efforts of my team-mates. We’re already planning a Team Shetland reunion later this year.
Remember my preview blog? Here are the photos from the day. Enabling alert! Continue reading
On Saturday I’m going on the Great London Yarn Crawl, courtesy of Yarn in the City. I’m one of their team of volunteer Yarn Guides – but of course I’ll be browsing too.
And enabling, no doubt. Warning: the enabling starts here. This is the blog post with lots of writing, as I dream of my day out. It will be slightly dangerous, but you can always not click the links. Afterwards, I promise lots of photos and less chat! You might need to look away. Continue reading
Knit Night in deepest Velvet with plum beads
We’re still getting into the swing of things here with all the excitement that back-to-school brings but should be back to our regular blogging routine soon.
In the meantime, we were saddened to learn that Asti at Juno Fibre Arts will be closing her doors and no longer dyeing by the end of October. You may remember that we interviewed Asti back in the spring of this year.
It’s hard to stop work when the yarn is this beautiful!
I need a vacation! I’m having some down-time until the kids are back at school in early September. Obviously that means I need vacation knitting, doesn’t it? Continue reading
Twizzle Silk: catch it while you still can.
Welcoming Aplayfulday to review Fyberspates Twizzle Silk.
I really enjoyed talking about Viviacious 4ply a little while ago and Louise invited me to review another of Fyberspates yarn range as I’ve worked with a fair few!
