Introducing Sonia – and Anna

You know the saying that if you want something done ask a busy woman? I reckon the person who coined that has met Anna Elliot.

Anna designs under the lovely name of Audrey’s Tea Shop – and her website is well worth a look.

Anyway -back to the busyness. About a month ago I contacted Anna to ask if she’d like to think about designing something with one of our colour wheel sets. And almost immediately there was a plan which we decided needed to become a design. Moments later there were incredible swatches and progress shots. It’s almost as if there weren’t really a million other things happening for Anna and her family at the same time. She’s awesome.

Before long there was Sonia


And then we wondered how another colourway would look.


The pattern is available to buy on Ravelry – and we’ll have the original hats plus paper patterns and yarn at Yarndale.

Anna has very kindly offered a pdf download of the pattern fpr Sonia to one blog reader. To be in with a chance of winning please leave a comment telling me which of Anna’s patterns you would like to knit other than Sonia. I think everyone will want to knit Sonia. Comments on the blog are moderated, so if you haven’ commented before it can take a little while for your comment to show up.

I’ll pick a winner on Friday morning, so you can have your pattern in time for the weekend.

    Sonia is a gorgeous pattern. Another pattern I rather like the look and idea of is the Coniston Sweater. Having recently been on a camping trip to the Lake District I feel it would be the perfect jumper for my son. He could wear it on our next holiday to the chilly Lake District.

    Ursa Minor would be a lovely design to knit… after Sonia! Coming to Yarndale at the weekend – can’t wait!!

  7. As someone with a stash that seems to grow by the minute I love Make do and Mend – lovely pattern for all those bits and bobs.

    Perambulator Mitts would be my ideal pattern for a weekend knit. I love the description. ‘These gloves are for anyone who enjoys a bit of perambulation or any other outdoorsy activity’
