socks and a scarf

The craziest yarn I've ever knitted with is by far Wunderkleckse by Schoppel Wolle, the colourway is Kräuterhexe. I think the yarn was dyed as a sock blank, as it is very kinky and the colours are absolutely mad. I believe the colourway varies greatly from ball to ball, which is quite awesome.

Meet our newest FREE pattern! I wanted to create something simple, structural and something that will work with variegated yarns. The sock is mostly ribbed, so nice and clingy! We used Twist Sock in Rusty Nail colourway and 2mm needle. You can download Vestigial from the shop here.

vale cardigan

I'm delighted with this one, probably my favourite knit so far. I love the architectural winding cable design, the rustic, sturdy, almost-but-not-quite scratchy yarn and the heathery yellow colour.

fibre to shawl

New shawl design is on it's merry way! I've spun this lovely club braid, it's the February shipment and it's 40% Polwarth, 20% Alpaca, 20% Camel, 20% Silk (we don't carry this blend in the shop, it was made exclusively for our Spinning club, you can join here). I've made fauxlags, arranged them by colour to get gradient and spun a lace single.
