May Update

Today's update is only a small one, but has some lovely jewels in it. There's Titus DK (superwash merino/silk)..     And Tempo DK (superwash wool/nylon)..     There's also a little Titus 4ply, including Rambling Rose, which many people have been asking about. Next month there will be more, as well as more Aisling Shawl kits. We also have a very exciting delivery of hand carved things on its way from Japan, which will be involved in next month's update.

Last week's colour inspiration 

Whilst I work I'm constantly snapping away on my phone when new colour combinations pop up - whether that's in the sink for a soak, or hung up on the drying rack.

Pattern release: Dubonnet

Welcome to the cottage

Some of you may be wondering why I'd move from an integrated website blog to a third party blog.. well I just prefer Wordpress. It's so much easier for me to edit, and it looks way nicer. With that in mind I hope you'll find the improved and hopefully more frequent posts interesting, useful, and inspiring.
