  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.

  3. Time for a New Project - Wispy Shawl by Joji Locatelli

    Have you seen the new shawl design from Joji Locatelli. It was popping up all over social media at the weekend and had me really intrigued. Its knit in a single strand of mohair lace with a few stripes of a 4ply. I'm really excited to see single stranded mohair projects. So often it's doubled up, but here it has...

  6. 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.

  7. A Summer KAL - KWA does Milkweed

    If you've followed my social media lately you know I've been talking about the wonders of thinner weight yarns. Now, let me be clear on one thing, I am not a lace knitter, I just don't have the patience in me to complete those amazingly beautiful but oh so stunning projects knitted with very fine yarn on very thin needles...

  8. New Yarn - Countess Ablaze Rebel Batch Resist & Hope

    The last time I saw Countess Ablaze was back in February at the Unravel Festival. We were so lucky to be stand neighbours, and in between managing our stands we hung out in the back chatting, laughing, ranting, putting the world straight (as one do). “I always plan to be sensible when I see you, I said, to plan my...

  11. What Maya Knits - KORO KORO Shawl

    As the pandemic spread and London went into lock-down, I went into melting mode. Turning to my knitting for comfort, none of my ongoing projects gave the nurture or the calm I was looking for. Maybe this is because they were newly started summer projects, in thinner yarns and airy stitches, neither carried the promise of what I needed the...
