a Vivacious Gilver

Vivacious 4ply is the newest addition to our 4ply range.  It is a 100% high twist merino yarn and comes in a beautiful range of hand dyed shades.  It offers great stitch definition and the high twist makes it hard wearing too.  And it is machine washable.  It costs £13.55 for 100g/365m hank.

Gilver is a shallow triangular shawl designed by Jo Kelly.  It is knitted mostly in squishy garter stitch with a picked up picot edge.  We have a Gilver in YarnPony's ShowPony in the shop and its very popular.  Both as a simple knit and as a wearable accessory.  It's a great pattern to show of a squishy merino and hand dyed yarns.

But it needs 400m of 4ply...

So...  How far would a hank of Vivacious go...  well, as it happens, quite far!

Whereas the original Gilver has a double edge, the Vivacious Gilver only has one edge

Check out the project page on Ravelry for how much yarn is used in each section...  I was left with only 4g of yarn after the picot cast off.

We think it still looks stunning... and it feels amazing too!

Winter Warmers

Many thanks to everyone who donated an item and helped out during the sale at the Pittenweem Arts Festival.

And a special thanks to Anne-Marijke who organises it all!

We'll let you know when the money will be handed over to the nominated charities...  Marie Curie Cancer Care and the East Neuk Food Bank.  It usually involves a photo op and cake!

Wonder what next years theme will be....
