  1. Time for a new project - Icelandic Lopapeysa

    The Lopapeysa originates in Iceland in early or mid-20th century, at a time when imports had displaced older and more traditional Icelandic clothing and people began to search for new ways to utilise the plentiful native wool. The design has since become a national icon for Icelandic cultural identity.

  5. Virtual Knit Night September 3rd

    There was this shift in the weather this week, in just a few days we went from proper hot to quite chilly. I don't feel like this was a smooth transition, almost like we just missed 'late summer' and went straight into fall. I do miss these longer chillier evenings though, they usually provide heaps of knitting time - the...

  8. Time for a New Project - Pianta Hat by Lavanya Patricella

    It's starting to feel a little Autumnal here in London. As I gaze out of the window grey clouds hang overhead and spots of rain appear now and again. The height of summer with its 30°C+ heat is slowly fading away. This is a glorious time to be a knitter as we can start to fantasise about all the woolly...

  10. What yarns are suitable for Babies?

    One of the more frequently asked questions I get is 'What yarns are suitable for knitting or crocheting for a baby?'. Well this question can be somewhat of an open ended one, with most of the yarns in the shop suitable in one form or another. But there are a number of things you can bear in mind when choosing a yarn to knit for the littlest member of the family.
