  1. What Maya Knits – Tessellated Vest

    As most of you know by now, my knitting time is so precious to me – firstly as it is very limited, secondly because with time I've become slow. With this I noticed a change in my focus, where the end result used to be the main goal, it is now all about the process, the knitting in itself, and...

  3. Back to Black

    As spring has sprung and the days are getting longer dark yarn has become a little less intimidating. Black yarn has a mixed reception amongst crafters, it looks so beautiful and chic knitted up but it sure is tricky on the eyes. Absorbing every little bit of light making fine intricate stitches almost impossible to see, especially on dark evenings...

  4. Virtual Knit Night April 11th

    It is a bloody miracle, isn't it? But yes, I do have a FO - a Finished Object - a project completed. Currently blocking on my dining table, I am well pleased with how my Tessellated Vest came out using the Black Elephant Wensleydale. Don't you just love it when an experiment actually work!!! I was debating with myself wether...

  5. Cumulus &

    Cumulus is one of my favourite fuzzy yarns we have in the shop and we have expanded the range. With a great selection of jewel like colours there has never been a better time to try out this yarn. Cumulus is wonderful just on its own but it is also great combined with a whole host of other yarns. Cumulus is a 25g...

  6. Recommended Yarn Third Edition - Part One

    It has been a little while since my last recommended yarn post so I thought it was an about time I had another look through what has come out since the last one. If you haven't seen the recommended yarn posts before the theme is to look at designs that have been written exactly for the yarns that we stock...

  7. Virtual Knit Night March 14th

    Oh you know that feeling right, where it's almost like you can taste it (although putting a mouthful of fibre-fluff into your mouth is not recommended), nearly done, just a few more rounds and it is done! This is me now, I'm so close, I'm actually considering leaving George at the shop by himself so that I can go home...

  8. Inspiration for Mazurka by Becci Pamely-Bast

    We love Riverknits and we had a great time catching up at Unravel a couple of weekends ago with Becci and Markus who are behind the Riverknits Chimera we stock. Becci was wearing the most amazing jumper knit in Chimera that was catching everyones attention. That jumper is the Mazurka by Becci herself and the pattern has now been released...

  9. New Yarn - Black Elephant Corriedale

    New yarn is hanging on the hand dyed wall of the shop and that is always an exciting moment. Not only because I get so tempted to cast on a completely new project but it looks great. It's calling to me from across the shop as I sit here and write this, 'knit me, knit me'. That new yarn is...

  12. Virtual Knit Night February 8th

    Like seriously! Where did this morning disappear to? I came in with a plan, and now half a day later it doesn't seems to have moved at all. My favourite word for this feeling is discombobulated. Discombobulate kind of sounds like you feel when you're disoriented: bouncing around in several directions at once - which is exactly what is happening...
