The EYF hangover

I have to be honest: I’m still reeling from Edinburgh Yarn Festival at the weekend. I know it’s cliched but it was just so nice. There were so many different accents/languages being spoken and yet it felt like everyone was happily sharing this wonderful experience and so it didn’t matter that there might be a language barrier. In all the people we had through our stall we only had one person be rude – I think that’s a record, particularly given how insanely busy it was. If you’ve never been to EYF it is well worth travelling and queuing for...

Welcome to the shiny new ECY website!

So the day is finally here! We are very pleased to announce that our new shopify website is now up and running. Although we have worked through several scenarios with the developers, it is possible (and somewhat expected) that we may encounter some teething problems. Please bear with us during this time and let us know if you have any issues. As people generally do not like change, we wanted to make this process as smooth as possible for all our lovely customers. With this in mind, below is a handy guide to help you to navigate through the website....

The launch coincided with Stitches West this past weekend and in honour of that, Lori very kindly agreed to an interview with me about the vest and her background amongst other things. The pattern for Summer Fog is available to purchase on Ravelry and...

New Milburn 4ply shades! (And a lecture; sorry!)

I thought I might introduce you to the new-new shades of Milburn 4ply which arrived yesterday. They’re HERE on the website firstly, and the 500g packs get a little discount so if you want a sweater quantity you’re best picking one of those and then getting any additional balls. Let me tell you a bit about the new colours – they bring the palette of Milburn shades up to 15, and they’re all really well matched from my samples that I sent to the dyer (who is based not far from here). I’ve added in another neutral shade so there...

Update Preview: Jan 2017

Morning/afternoon/evening... I hope you're all well! We've had a busy start to the year, as usual, although it's been a bit more chaotic with a 15 week old Labrador puppy about - I'm sure you'll have seen my pics on social media! It's getting easier as she gets older though and the days getting longer is helpful too. Anyway, so far is year I've mostly been busy working on wholesale yarn, but I did prepare lots of BFL Sock ready for Sunday (the 29th)'s update - it'll go live at 2pm UK time. We actually have a sparkling new website...
