New for Yarndale – Hexi Blanket!

It’s a slightly early blog this week because I know that some of you like to plan your shopping pre-Yarndale...

As well as Frank the Fox knit kits, you can also get your hands on my brand new Hexi Blanket pattern!

Knit this colourful Hexi Blanket by Jem Weston

Rowan Summerlite DK has the most gorgeous colour palette and I enjoyed working on the Hexi Placemats for Cute Comfort Knits so much that the hexis just developed into a blanket.

I don’t know about you – but I love snuggling up on the sofa with a blanket… even during a heatwave. The Hexi Blanket is a great weight snuggly sofa blanket all year round or a lovely extra layer on the foot of your bed in colder months.

The pattern also has a smaller size which would be perfect as a baby blanket… and if you shop with me at Yarndale you can enter a giveaway to win an exclusive Small Hexi Blanket Knit Kit worth ¬£62!

If you can’t make it to Yarndale or just prefer your patterns in a digital format – fear not! The Hexi Blanket will be available as a downloadable PDF shortly after Yarndale.

Secret Knitting 

It’s that time of year again where I’m very busy working on projects that I can’t tell you about yet…but I really want to!

So I thought you might like a little sneaky peek at the yarns and shades I’m working with….

I’m not normally a pink kinda person but I absolutely love this soft pink shade in Big Wool. And it looks fab with the rest of the palette I’ve chosen (which of course includes teal!).

I’ve been enjoying working with Summerlite dk for the first time… and I’m particularly excited about the project I’ve knitted in the yummy shades above.

I’m rediscovering my love for Cocoon…so soft, so cosy and so quick to knit!

And of course there will be some Felted Tweed. Always a favourite of mine and the colours are just beautiful.

I can’t wait to share more with you later this year!
