  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...

  2. 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...

  6. 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...

  7. What would you pick?

    Admittedly, having half of our delivery disappear into nothingness, circling the earth and some, just to get from Norway to the UK, does put a damper on an otherwise insanely exciting launch! However, as my Nan used to say, those who are waiting for something good will never wait in vain. Our wonderfully lush delivery has been found, located, and...
