New colours, new yarn bases and a trip to Japan in 2019

There are some pretty new colours on my website this week.

Let me introduce Old Grey Speckle and Grandpa's Jumper.

There is something very special about a good grey. It's a fantastic neutral and  will work with just about any colour.
The pretty speckles add interest to these semi solid greys and they would look amazing on their own or with each other but if you need a pop of colour why not pair them with Iris, Black Iris or maybe Chatter on Pink? 
Hand dyed Merino available in 2, 4 and 8ply.

I have some beautiful new yarn to tempt you with - a gorgeous Merino and Cashmere blend.

This yarn is seriously, seriously soft!

I've been testing this beautiful yarn, dyeing it, knitting  it, stroking it and I think I'm in love. I can't put it down! It's just so soft.
This yarn is pure luxury, lovely to work with and heavenly to wear.
The blend is 80% Merino/ 20% Cashmere and it comes in both 2 and 4 ply. 

Have you tried knitting two socks at a time using one needle and one ball of yarn yet? 

I suffer from serious one-sockitis.

If I don't knit two socks at a time then that second sock will never be seen. 
I've created a video showing you how to cast on two socks at a time using one needle and one ball of yarn and I have an easy peasy sock pattern for you to follow along as you knit.

We're off to Japan again!!!

The details for our 2019 Japan 'All Things Yarn' tour are almost ready to be released.

Come and join us as we knit, shop and eat our way through Japan.
