  1. Virtual Knit Night August 11th

    You know when you're going on holiday and panic strikes because you can't make your mind up to what project to bring? So not being able to make a decision you bring a wider selection of WIPs (work in progress) and all the yarns to go with them! This time around this was NOT me, I was going to strategise...

  2. Just one skein...

    The G-uld No.4 Minis keep calling to me every time I walk past them in the shop. The colours are just so lovely and the Merino/Gotland blend base is beautiful. Just like the bigger 100g equivalents the G-uld No.4 Minis are all naturally dyed by G-uld in Denmark but instead of 100g these come in a handy 25g. The meterage...

  3. Cotton, Cotton / Bamboo, Bamboo

    It's hotting up but our knitting hands still want to keep busy. So what do they crave, plant fibres! Plant fibres are the cool breeze of the knitting world and we have just had a delivery of the lovely Nurturing Fibres, Eco-Cotton, Eco-Fusion and Eco Bamboo. These hand dyed yarns are what your hot hands have been asking for. Nurturing...

  4. Virtual Knit Night July 14th

    I just have to admit defeat in this friendly knitting race of ours, as George has already finished his. In fact, in this heat he is strutting around in his summer tank, just proving what a brilliant summer garment this is, and I am really eager to get mine done as well! So it's pretty obvious what I'll be working...

  5. Colour Inspiration

    Some colour / fibre combos to feast your eyes this summer weekend! ⁠You know those patterns where it says for requirements: "200g - 300g of fingering or 4Ply yarn", where the designer have used the must stunning colour combo but when coming up with one of your own you draw completely blank. With the arrival of some new gorgeous Black...

    Black Elephant Singles are back with a bang! Petra's eye for gorgeous hand dyed colours is pure magic and we love it when a box of her yarn arrives in the shop.

  8. Virtual Knit Night June 9th

    Yay! I've finished my jumper! Well almost, I still need to weave in the ends and block it, so my dilemma for tonight is - do I spend the evening weaving in ends or do I cast on for my next project... The thing is, I'm going on holiday next week, and every holiday warrants a holiday project, so lately...
  9. Summer Knits

    Summer is here and as the temperatures are rising so is my urge to cast on something new. I'm dreaming up lightweight, cool against hot skin, quick knits that can be finished before the season has passed. Temperatures and knitting urges are sadly not the only thing rising these days, the cost of living has reached new levels, and even...

  12. Virtual Knit Night May 12th

    Sometimes time moves really slowly, but then suddenly everything moves so so fast! For me these last few weeks have been like that, so fast I'm still trying to wrap my head around and digest what happened. We had our first in store event, which was a such a joy still a reminder on how long ago we did that...
