I hope you are all having a great start to the new year.
Its been a busy month for me and I am sure for most of you with all your crafty projects.
What have you been working on? I'd love to hear from you.
The Silver Echos Shawl is out for pattern testing, it went out last Saturday. I was so overwhelmed by by the amount of people who had gotten in touch to confirm they wanted to test it for me so thank you if you were one of those people.
I’ve had some great feedback so far from the people who have been testing it and I plan to release the pattern very early February so watch this space.
It's great to see the other colours that people have used to make their shawl.
I have also been working on getting ready for the Makers Bazaar Sale market which is on the 1st February, I hope you can come along and make sure you say hello.
I will have some of my yarns at a discounted price, up to 50% off on some skeins.
Saturday 1st February
11am to 4pm
Jane Austen College, Colegate, Norwich, NR3 1DD - Next Door to the Playhouse
What has been your WIP for January?
Other than the gorgeous (I may be bias) shawl I have designed, I have been working on this Tanis Sweater designed by Tinderbox and I am in love. You can buy her pattern on Ravelry and it is really easy to follow.
It is written in US terms which was easy to follow once I had remembered to convert the stitches. I did start the project without converting them so had to restart which was a little annoying but I know I am not the only one who has done that.
I have actually finished the sweater but I haven't sewn it in and blocked it yet so I will be doing that soon and will upload a photo.
The yarn I used is Mist which is one of my own colour way and it will be in the shop update in early February.
The early February shop update is going to be a large one with over 100 new skeins which will be available and a few new colours too.
You may have noticed from my events page that I will be making Christmas Advent Calendars this year. Yes, for all you self-confessed yarn addicts you will be able to get your yarn fix on a daily basis during December.
You will be able to pre-order these little Christmas treats from June 2020 onward. You will also be able to pay in a few monthly instalments to help spread the costs. They will be posted in mid-November so that you will receive them in time for the 1st December.
To the right you will see some of the yarns I have dyed but the contents of the boxes will be kept secret until the day you open your gift.
There will be a few options;
12 day - 20g mini sock yarn
12 day - 20g mini DK yarn
24 day - 20g mini sock yarn
24 day - 20g mini DK yarn
Watch this space for more information on these Christmas Advent Calendars.
