Opal Rainforest XIII in the shop!

New Opal 4ply shades have arrived! Rainforest XIII.

Our 4th collection this year, after My Sock Design, Illusion and Fresh & Juicy (there are a few odd balls still in the shop!)

Get it while you can! Perfect for socks and more...

As usual 1 ball makes 1 pair of socks, or 2 pairs of short socks, or (probably) 2 short cowls. You could make 2 hats, or at least 2 pairs of small hand warmers, or several small gift bags.

100g will also give you a decent length of scarf/shawl or a jumper for a baby. Ideas for your odd bits can be found here on Pinterest.

Ginger's Eyelet - new shop sample

A variation on our popular shawl patterns.

This eyelet shawl takes elements from the Super Eyelet and the Fine Super Eyelet to create Ginger's Eyelet in honour of the gorgeous 4ply yarn hand dyed by Jess at Ginger's Hand Dyed.

We have a selection of Ginger's Hand Dyed in the shop for the month of August including the Splendor 4ply in Selkie used in our shawl.  A gorgeous 50/50 blend of merino and silk that gives so much drape and shine.

Pattern is available too!

KNITSONIK back in stock

Ahead of her workshops during Shetland Wool Week, we've got copies of Felicity Ford's wonderful stranded colourwork sourcebook back in stock.  If you want to develop your own colour stranded colourwork schemes or gain confidence in your choices then this book is for you.

The official blurb... "The KNITSONIK Stranded Colourwork Sourcebook shows you how to translate everyday things into stranded colourwork. This knitting book celebrates such everyday things as bricks, biscuit tins and fruitcake, and show you how to turn them into things you can wear and admire. It is about seeing the everyday world through a specific, knitterly lens."
