Well, what a busy couple of months! Since I last wrote we’ve had our first Knit-Tea Retreat, which was wonderful! I’ll be writing a couple of posts on our website soon if you’d like to hear all about it.
In Owl About Yarn news I’ve been to a couple of yarn festivals this last couple of months. West Wales Wool show is always a delight to be at, and I was at Festiwool for the first time on this past weekend. But now I’m all done with yarn festivals for the next few months and so I’ll have time to focus on my online shop and on designing.
I have four new patterns out that I wanted to tell you about, all available on Ravelry and shortly in my Etsy shop too. First up, is a cowl I designed for the recent retreat and published in the retreat booklet for our attendees. The Insole Court Cowl is a simple DK weight pattern which knitters at every stage could manage. If you can knit and purl, you can make this!
The second and third patterns are a set, although available individually. The Raining Sideways Hat and Raining Sideways fingerless mitts are again in DK weight, featuring a variation on a herringbone stitch. If you put them both in your basket and buy them together on Ravelry, you will get the second pattern at half price.
Fourth and finally, last week I released the Christmas Bauble Mitts pattern. It’s the perfect festive knit, easy colourwork and you can shop from the odds and ends of 4ply weight yarn in your stash. Or, if you’d prefer, you could have a look at my next shop update and buy my 2018 Christmas bauble! In it you will receive the pattern, the yarn you need to knit the small size mitts, stitch markers, a progress keeper and a couple of Lindt chocolates! It would be a wonderful Christmassy cast on.
If you’re signed up for my newsletter I’ll be emailing you about the shop update to let you know exactly when it will be. If not, why not sign up now, and then you won’t miss out!
