FO: Coral Reef hat For the last couple of months I've had one of the most fabulous pompoms in my possession. I had already used a pompom just like it when knitting a gift hat earlier this year, but had been waiting for the perfect yarn before knitting myself an equally pretty hat.

Head Over Heels All Stars New yarns in Head over Heels All Stars have arrived from Stylecraft. All 6 shades have been chosen by Stylecraft Blogstars and inspired by the artist David Hockney. Earlier this year knitters and crocheter's voted in their thousands for their favourite combinations of colours to add to the yarn range.

Year of Projects 8: Week 15 My top priority for last week was to finish my Test Knit Socks, and happily they were finished a few days before the testing period ended. I expect that the pattern will be updated and published later this week; I'll provide a link once it's "live". In the meantime I can share my finished photos.

A parting and some subsequent faffing Well, as expected this weekend has been odd. Amy and I set off with a fully laden car at 8ish yesterday morning and by 9.30 were carrying the bags and boxes containing all of her worldly goods up the 2 flights of stairs to her room on the top floor.

One Sock, Two Sock, Red Sock, Blue Sock I recently finished two pairs of socks. I'd finished knitting them awhile ago, but in an uncharacteristic move, I didn't weave in the ends for a month. The first pair finished was the pair knit from Cathy's stash: Swedish Fish. I made a few modifications.

Finnich Now I can introduce the second of the two yoke styles we've developed with Harley of Scotland - Finnich. Like Duntreath, the garment is knitted using Harley's innovative seamless technology and, like Duntreath we've used JC Rennie lambswool, but worked at a heavier weight and gauge.

Duntreath I'm so pleased to be able to introduce you to Duntreath! After we successfully launched our lambswool snoods last year, I really wanted to develop a line of garments. Having researched and written a book all about the history of yoke sweaters, I knew I wanted to make yokes, and I also knew who I wanted to make them.

No hassle tassel! ;) I've popped the post up on my crochet tutorial site, Crochet Corner. Thank you so much for taking the time to leave me a comment! I read and appreciate every single one and if you leave your details, I'll try to reply too!

New yarns for autumn 2018 At UK Hand Knitting we've been enjoying seeing some of the new yarns that are appearing for this autumn so we thought it was time to share a few that we like the look of. First off, we have two yarns that are new takes on classic yarns and which could become regulars for your projects.

Making things "locally" As my business has grown over the past few years I have learned a lot about making things locally. Working with Scottish, Irish, and English producers, I've made my own books, and yarn, and knitwear. I've collaborated with many different types of manufacturers, from printers and spinners to dyers and wool producers.

Knitting the Radost cowl from Knitworthy 5 The Radost cowl from Knitworthy 5 begins with a neat edging that's really just a very narrow folded hem. It makes a clean, sturdy finish that I love for garter stitch. The first step is to cast on using a provisional method with scrap yarn. My favourite method is to work a crochet chain around the needle.

All good It seems that I have been living under a rock. I thought I knew what was percolating in the knitting world, but clearly I did not. This all is most likely familiar to you, but it was not for me. Not long ago I started to watch the Grocery Girls videocast on Youtube.

Year of Project 8: Week 14 Last weekend we returned from a few days in New Hampshire, but rather than posting I spent my time on Saturday and Sunday tidying, doing laundry and catching up on work.

Cornwallis - Emma Varnam's blog By any sort of measure, I should not have made my new Cornwallis Jumper. Firstly - yellow is a very difficult colour to wear, anybody will tell you that. Think about it, apart from the glorious Seasalt Jacket that revived our love for Souwester-chic, you won't see many people sporting sunshine yellow.

A Letter to the Future Yesterday afternoon I was lying on the kitchen floor, highlighter pens at my side, and was colouring in a giant 2019 wall planner. I used to be able to plan my life month by month, but nowadays I have to plan year by year.
