New Online Shop

My online shop has moved house and had a little makeover!

You can buy signed copies of Cute Comfort Knits and The Knitted Nursery Collection.

And for everyone taking part in the Moody Blanket Knit-along you can pick up your small or large top-up packs here. Just select from the drop-down menu whether you would like five or ten balls and leave me a ‘note’ with your shade choices as per usual.

New Knit Kits!

December is nearly upon us, so I feel it is now appropriate to use the c-word.

It’s nearly Christmas!

Bobby Scarf, Hat and Mitts are now all available as kits.

Bobby Scarf Knit Kit: £30 – shop now

I also have limited stock of the super cuddly Panda & Big Bear kits.

You can also find a few bargains! My Lazy Lace Cowl kits are now just £20 and would be a lovely Christmas project.

The Polly/Ollie Elephant & Blanket kits are reduced to £65. Containing a copy of The Knitted Nursery Collection and all the yarn needed to knit the simple Ollie/Polly blanket AND Ollie/Polly Elephant – these kits would make the perfect gift for a new mum and new knitter!

Well that’s made me feel rather festive so I’m off to do some Christmas gift crochet in front of the (electric) fire! x

Dice Cowl

It’s a Friday blog this week folks, instead of my usual Sunday blog – because it’s Yarndale weekend!

I have already introduced you to the Lazy Lace Cowl and Shuggie Sheep – both of these will launch as kits at Yarndale this weekend. So that just leaves the Dice Cowl!

DiceCowl2

The Dice Cowl pattern is decided by the roll of a dice – giving you a truly random and unique cowl.

DiceCowl1I was inspired by my experience of knitting the Mood Scarf. I wanted to design a pattern that would take away the over-thinking and be random and exciting to knit because you don’t know what’s coming next!

I also wanted it to be something that you can knit at your own pace. You could knit one roll per day or just keep on rolling. I personally got a bit addicted to the roll of the dice – but it’s a fairly healthy way to gamble I think?!

The Dice Cowl is knitted in Kid Classic, Pure Wool Worsted and the beautiful new Hemp Tweed.

Kits will be available at Yarndale for £25 and you can choose from a blue or pink colourway. All packed in a lovely cotton project bag (die included).
But if you can’t make it this weekend you can buy the pattern from Ravelry here.

All the cowls will look different so I would love to see pics of your finished Dice Cowl!

Shuggie Sheep

The countdown to Yarndale begins!

One of the new kits I will be launching at Yarndale is the woolly, cuddly Shuggie Sheep. Knitted in Rowan Fur and Rowan Fine Tweed, he is quick to knit and very soft and squishy!

Many of my toy designs are inspired by yarn colours or textures. As soon as I saw the Rowan Fur I knew I wanted to make a sheep and it really is the perfect sheepy yarn. I love his little fluffy tail!

If you can’t make it along to Yarndale – don’t worry! Shuggie is also available to buy as a download from Ravelry here.

I will be introducing another exciting new kit which will launch at Yarndale later this week – so watch this space!

I’ve had great fun getting prepared for Yarndale and can’t wait for next weekend! Are you coming along?
