Tank tops! Yeahhhhh!

Love them, they are so versatile and cosy without taking as long to knit as a whole jumper! Just perfect for layering 😊

One of these is shown in self-striping yarn, one is a traditional Fair Isle design. Love 'em 😍

Of course, with those awesome new patterns I've had to play my favourite game...... πŸ˜€

Here are some ideas for colour combinations for those stripes and squares. These are fairly "quiet" with subtle accents but if you prefer brighter then yes, we can of course sort you out!

Sue is an expert knitter (and weaver and spinner and photographer and pyrothingywotsits); she is also part of the co-operative of local artisans and Wiltshire Crafts of Lacock. That's where you might find some of her gorgeous little bootees like these - she used West Yorkshire Spinners' Signature 4ply in Holly Berry, don't they just look fabulous?

We have Holly Berry in stock along with all the other WYS "Christmas" colourways :-D

We've been having great fun making little hats for the Age UK Wiltshire Innocent Smoothies Big Knit. Each hat handed in to Age UK Wiltshire gets them 25p, which is a useful sum of money, it uses up all those scraps of yarn and keeps us out of mischief.

So who's going to join us to help our local Age UK reach their target? It's 40,000 of which they still need about 10,000.... yep, a lot of hats but they don't take long. If it were only us making, a bit maths on the back of a fag packet says that's 250 per week. Can we do this? Of course, it's not just us making them so how about we say 125 per week?

I'll make a chart of some sort to track progress and arrange some more social events to make them (knitting and crochet), if you make them at home you'll need to hand them in or post them direct to Age UK Wiltshire (offices in Devizes) but you could send us a photo first and we'll cheat and add them to "our" total.....

Who's in?

Yep, we definitely agree, a "tank top" sort of garment is just perfect and bang on trend :-D

We have this pattern and the yarn (lots of colour choices) in stock, you could choose to do it in wool or a wool-blend for extra warmth.

We're obsessed with slipovers at the minute, they're such a great addition to any autumn wardrobe. πŸ‚πŸ

Knitted in Cottonsoft DK, this slipover features a gentle diamond patterning that reminds us of argyle jumpers, without the fiddly colour-changes!

A couple of months later and the knitting is almost finished; we will show you it later but in the meantime feast your eyes on this beautiful image. It is intended to show how the fine strand of mohair has bloomed and given the whole thing a halo of fluzz (somewhere between fluff and fuzz, I made it up). However, it immediately made me think of young fronds of moss!

Love this image Kate, thank you so much for sharing it :-) x

Great afternoon in the sunshine (well, sort of sunshine!) yesterday knitting and crocheting little hats for the Innocent Smoothies Big Knit for Age UK Wiltshire. 61 hats delivered today, which is good but won't make much of a dent in the remainder of their target - they still need 10,000 to reach the original target of 40,000 😯 So keep making folks and drop your hats off to the Age UK offices in Devizea or you can post them to them.

We will have another event towards the end of October so keep watching this page 😊

PS: Each hat you send in gets them 25p so it's well worth doing.

NEW STUFF ALERT 🀩

At the other end of the price spectrum is this new yarn from Italy, "Robin Hood." A surprising name to come out of Rimini πŸ˜€

100g, 100m, 60% wool/40% acrylic, multicoloured chunky. You could use it as a standard chunky but the manufacturers, Adriafil, suggest 8mm needles to give a softer fabric. Mmmm nice!

Its £10.25 per ball but if you buy a jumper pack (8 to 10 balls), we will throw in the pattern and a pair of knitting needles 😊 Three colourways - blues, greens and reds.

I'll be getting the packs onto the website as soon as possible, in the meantime pop in or give us a shout to discuss sizes etc.

"Calinou" by Bergere de France. This is a delightful 4ply that we would have loved to continue to stock but sadly it became too difficult to deal with Bergere πŸ˜₯ Its a super soft blend of 25% merino wool and 75% acrylic, wonderful for babies and grown-ups. It has a very slight sheen to it.

We have a fair amount in stock but only these three colours - turquoise, black and silver- which luckily go rather well together! Was Β£3.50, now Β£2 per 50g ball.

Yep, we know it's only September but if you want a Christmas jumper you need to start sooner rather than later!

Lots of styles for you to choose from (these are just a selection), all ages/sizes/genders. You could use any jumper pattern and do it in a festive yarn, think sparkles or wintery colour combinations. What about a Scandi palette of neutrals with splashes of red? Maybe a couple of rows of Tinsel at the cuffs and collar?

Mrs Currion is a fantastic knitter and she likes to use really good yarn. She rarely uses the yarn suggested by the pattern so it's always a joyful surprise to see what she has made.

This is a Stylecraft cardi pattern knitted with Rico Cotton Metallise; its true colour is the fuchsia pink of the main photo but we've included the close-up to show you just how subtly sparkly it is!
