“Anne with an E” kit! ❤

If you are a newsletter subscriber you will have heard the exciting news that I am collaborating with C.C. Almon of JavaPurl Designs to create a gorgeous kit inspired by Anne of Green Gables. We are both big fans of the books and grew up reading them (and never stopped!). So when C.C. came to me with her idea for a shawl kit I was thrilled. Immediately a new and detailed project bag design leaped into my head fully formed, and I made a prototype and sent it to C.C. (luckily she liked it too!). She commissioned two skeins of super cuddly merino yarn in two different colours to design a shawl, and thus the kit was born.

Preorders are open at http://www.JavaPurl Designs.com/aogg-kit until Saturday 18th November. In the kit you will receive a beautiful project bag, two skeins of hand dyed yarn, C.C.’s beautiful pattern and a couple of extra goodies. Shipping will be a little while as I will order the materials once preorders close, and then it will be quite a lot of work to get all the bags made and the yarn dyed. But I will be working hard and will get the kits shipped out as soon as is possible!

It would make a wonderful treat for yourself if you are an Anne fan, or a fantastic gift for a knitting friend. Kits are priced at $80 USD plus a flat shipping rate of $10.

So that website one more time; http://www.JavaPurl Designs.com/aogg-kit – don’t hang about! You only have a couple of days left to get your order in before preorders finish this Saturday 18th November!

What about now?

Did I mention the discount code? Bargain yarn, what’s not to love?!

And there’s more….

I think, I think I’ve finally got all my yarns listed in the shop! On Thursday I finished off the skeins of fingering and laceweight, and I’ve just yesterday evening finished writing up and photo editing a heap of the smooshiest, softest DK merino yarn plus the new sets of fingering weight miniskeins. So lots of gorgeous colour has expanded the shop, I hope you like it all! 

Big luscious shop update!

I’ve been working hard this week to bring you a bumper shop update. There are seventeen (yes, seventeen!!) new colourways on fingering weight yarn.

I’ve got sparkly yarns, yarns with a bit of nylon for the sock knitters, pure wool yarns…something for everyone!

Plus, as an added bonus, I have a handful of beautiful colourways on my laceweight yarn which is an 80% extra fine merino 20% silk blend. Soooooo soft! 

Have you seen my new spindle bags?

I wanted to share my latest new product range with you. For Yarningham I made a stack of quilted spindle bags, and now all the ones I brought home are in the shop! There’s a fun range of fabrics, but as ever, if you are after this design in a different fabric just get in touch and we’ll see what I can do for you!

They are a good size, being more than roomy enough to fit my regular spindle and fluff, but also big enough that I could carry my big Ashford plying spindle if I wanted (that’s the larger, untreated wood one). Fully lined and quilted, they should protect your spindle from bumps and scratches. And the fun fabric prints will bring a smile to your face whenever you use it!

Don’t forget to enter my Instagram giveaway draw if you haven’t already – it ends tonight at midnight, and the winner will be announced tomorrow! Good luck!
