Pride Triangle Shawl

At Edinburgh Yarn Festival I had a very rushed conversation with a designer who’d done something very lovely with our mini skeins. The pattern wasn’t quite ready and Aileen promised to be in touch once it was finished.

The pattern is now available to buy via Ravelry.

Shop Update 06.04.17

There’s lots of colour this week, all dyed on our 4ply British wool and nylon base.

There are colour wheels.

We have all of the shades of gray that you could possibly want.

We have lots of bright sock yarns.

Finally we have dyed more of the lime and purple haze which are used in the mirrored linen stitch cowl – these sold out fast at Edinburgh and I know several of you are waiting for them.

The shop update will take place at 1900 this evening, so until then the yarns above won’t be available.

Happy shopping

100 Days of Screen Printing

The latest round of the 100 Days project starts today.

What you do with your 100 days is up to you – and the aim is to do something every day for the next 100 days.

I’ll be screen printing.

I won’t be making prints every day (not least because we’ll be in Egypt during the next 100 days) – but I will be trying to do something every day. It might be sketching, spending time on graphic design software or sewing printed fabric into something.

I’ll be posting on instagram using the hashtag #100daysofscreenprinting. If you’d like to see what I’m up to I’m theknittinggoddess

Today I’ve been printing on birch wood – so these sheets now have a date with a laser cutter.

What will you do in the next 100 days?

Shop Update 30.03.17

Yesterday I chose my favourite thing in this week’s update as being the new Two Flocks colours.

It’s a close run thing though – we’ve also dyed the same gorgeous rainbow of colours onto our DK BFL & Masham base.

The shop update takes place at 1900 this evening.

Happy shopping

Update Highlight

Picking this week’s highlight has been easy – I’ve been dyeing more of our Two Flocks yarn. I love this yarn base and the way it takes colour.

We launched the March Knit British colour at Edinburgh Yarn Festival – and a single skein of it came home.

You can see all of the yarns in the update on the blog tomorrow.
