  1. Viva Magenta

    A couple of years ago I did a blog post looking at the Pantone Colour of the Year for inspiration, so this year I have decided to do the same. This year's colour is Viva Magenta 18-1750: Pantone (link to Pantone's website) produce a system for matching colours which is used by printmakers, graphic designers and fashion designers, and every...

  2. Virtual Knit Night January 12th

    It is that time of year where I am drowning in my accounts. I'm leaving everything shop to George and diving in to my folders and the piles of papers not even put in them yet. Let me tell you I'm mustering all the will power I have not to abandon everything, because with me and which I can see...

  3. Unspun, Pre-wool, or Plötu – but what is it and how to work it?

    There is a Norwegian saying that goes something like this: A much loved child is known by many names. And so goes the story with this type of yarn, lush, warm and quite intriguing, known as Unspun, Pre-wool, or Plötu – but what is it and how to work it?  Plötu in Icelandic is directly translated to 'board' or 'disc...

  4. A Balaclava Craze

    We are noticing a bit of a balaclava craze here in the shop and lots of people have been coming in either wearing one or wanting to knit one. Like them or loathe them they are the ideal headgear for this chilly winter weather. An all round hood that keeps your head, ears and neck warm has to be a...

  5. Knits for Busy Times

    This time of year can get quite hectic. You might be traveling, you might be visiting family or friends or even going away on holiday. Whatever you find yourself doing, your precious knitting time might be disappearing fast.

  6. Virtual Knit Night December 8th

    Today is some day! We are expecting the last of our major deliveries before Christmas, a much anticipated one, which means that George and I will be on our feet, head down in boxes to get our pre-orders wrapped up and sent out just as fast as they came through our doors. But it is not everything 'last' happening today...

  7. Fibre Foraging with Maya and Tuva

    Sometimes, as a knitter, you discover a design that just knocks the air out of you. Nothing else matters, you just have to get it onto your needles as quickly as you can. I mean, I am often intrigued by a project if it bears promises of new techniques or constructions that I haven't tried before, but a double win...

  8. Last Minute Knit Gifts (and crochet too ...)

    Every single year this happens to me ... I start in April going 'This year I will be prepared, I'll finish what I'm working on and then I'll start doing my Christmas gifts - I know exactly what to make for ... everyone!' Then fast forward, before I know it it's November, and I still haven't started. Many a cast-on...

  10. All Things Marled

    Writing the blog post about the new Chimera we have in the shop has got me excited about marling and marled yarns. I cast on with some Chimera straight away and loving knitting it up. Marled yarns are fun to knit with and unlike speckled or variegated yarn they play with colour in their own unique way. I thought I...

  11. Virtual Knit Night November 10th

    Sometimes, no matter what an organising mastermind you are, things don't work at plan. And today is such a day for me. I am supposed to be on a plane going to Norway tonight, and there are full on strikes happening across the public transport network in London. To be able to get to the airport I've had to be...
