News: Drift..

with only two weeks to go until the digital release of our new collection, I thought it'd be good to introduce it more properly and give you a better idea of what to expect.     So without further ado I will first tell you that the collection is named Drift.. And that the patterns use Whitfell DK, which is our snuggly baby alpaca.    The patterns include crochet as well as knitting.. And the patterns include both accessories and garments - including a kid's garment.. We *should* also be releasing Whitfell DK in Steel and Natural alongside the collection (if...

Fuchsia Friday

Following my last colour-themed post, when I noticed more yarn/flower colour matching happening in the garden, of course I had to play again. This time it's all about the pink. First up.. The yarn is BFL Sock in Alpine (for Kathy's Knits in Edinburgh) - it's named for the bright pinks of many alpines, e.g. saxifrage, pincushion flowers, and... That being said I have none in flower right now (just given the saxifrage a hair cut), so here it is along with sweet peas:    Hydrangea (this one belonged to my Grandma and is older than me):    And begonia...

5th of July Update Preview (Part 2)

Welcome to part two of tomorrow's update preview! It's just photos of yarn, but I thought the different colour combinations might help you decide (or make it worse!). First of all I did do five batches of Tempo 4ply (superwash wool/nylon) - they are Dandelion, Compost, Coppice, Steel and Antique Rose (which is a surprisingly difficult to photograph colour - it's very pale lilacy pink). Ok and the final hand dyed yarns for the update are all on Oakworth 4ply (100% superwash Polwarth wool). I am really loving this yarn and it seems you are too (it's nice to know...
