    I was checking out the Pantone Colour of the Year for 2021 and this year they have chosen two colours. PANTONE 17-5104 Ultimate Gray and PANTONE 13-0647 Illuminating.

    As we're sweeping 2020 out of the door (good riddance) we've had a chance to reflect on the year that has passed.

And...

  8. I'm thinking about hats (again)

    I think it must have something to do with the change of seasons and the nights drawing in. There is a chill in the air, the weather is miserable. But it's this time of year I start to think about knitting myself a new hat. Hats are fun to knit. Unlike some more ambitious projects it's a realistic expectation to...

  9. One Cool Wool, Two Cool Wool, Three Cool Wool, Four!

    One of the most regular questions I get asked is 'How many balls of Cool Wool do I need for a scarf'? Cool Wool is a chunky 100% Peruvian wool we have just started stocking. It comes in a wild range of fun colours and it is the perfect beginners yarn. Being chunky it knits on 10-12mm needles, which makes...
