I have been planting seeds of the knitting variety in anticipation of an Autumnal harvest. Work on the newest collection is coming along every so slowly. I keep getting side tracked by shiny new projects and beautiful yarns, but the designs are always there, reminding me to get a move on…
One of the shiny, exciting things that has my attention just now is a new KAL!
I think I am almost over the Edinburgh Yarn Festival hangover. If you managed to go, you know it was an awesome event and I don’t need to tell you. If you didn’t manage to go, you probably don’t want to hear about what an awesome event you missed. If you didn’t make it this year, definitely come next year!
I will say that I met some wonderful fibre folk and I came home with some gorgeous yarn.
I tried to be strategic and only bring yarn home with a project in mind. I introduced my current project previously, and it is very much in the works now. It may seem odd that I have mentioned a project revolving around the use of scraps and leftovers, and then come home with lots of beautiful new yarn, but my thinking was this: I want to create a collection that allows people to use up little odd bits of yarn and stash, but it’s also important to me that every design also works with available yarns in only one or 2 colours in larger quantities. I am still in the early stages of swatching and designing, but I am feeling optimistic about it!
Come learn with me!
I am pleased to announce some awesome upcoming classes in the next couple of months:
