Fifty Years and the Festive Season

This week’s shop update is a rather interesting selection. Or to put it another way there was a road closure which delayed the arrival of 50kg of yarn, so there wasn’t a huge amount available to dye.

For those of you looking for 4ply merino and silk I can promise that will be in next week’s shop update.

So for this week we have fun things.

First up, 2 ways to celebrate 50 years of Doctor Who

And finally for this week something rather special.

The chance to have a 100% cashmere hat for £14.

We were lucky enough to get a tiny batch of DK cashmere – it’s a mill end from a very well known fashion house and it is really gorgeous stuff.

I knitted the hat from less than 50g of the cashmere, and it made it’s debut at the Knitting and Stitching Show in Harrogate, where it was much tried on and admired. There isn’t a huge amount of the yarn left, and we’ll be sending a copy of the pattern with each skein. It would make a gorgeous present for a knitter – or a gorgeous hat if you wanted to do the knitting yourself.

There are 6 colours available and each 50 gram skein has 173 meters in it.
