January 14, 2014

Happy New Year everyone – hope you all had a great 2013!  After an amazing 2-weeks away with my family I am sloooowly getting back into things at the shop – hence the silence on the website!  Three things to share with you all!

Firstly…

Annual Post-Boxing Day Sale

Sat & Sun, February 1 – 2

11am – 6pm

Watch here for FULL details of all the sale yarn!

 

 

 

Secondly…

Our very fun Jane-along will be coming to a close!  Thanks to everyone who participated and way to go, some really beautiful things were made.  We will have a Jane-along show off party at the regular stitch n bitch on Wed. January 29th and we can share our FO’s and also take some photo’s

 

 

 

Finally…..

Here is a sweet little project that I meant to share weeks ago. My little nephew Stanley is turning 1 year old soon, to celebrate him I made this GREAT little sweater!  The base pattern is called Greyson – what a fantastic, easy and modifiable top-down raglan pattern.  The designer writes it for a DK, Worsted or Chunky weight yarn, and in a full range of sizes.  I decided to add the adorable whale details using this chart.

I knit the sweater using the Viking Sportsgarn – a great 100% wool in a wide range of colours (this yarn will be on sale at our post-boxing day sale!!)

I also used THIS amazing tutorial on how to do colourwork for a pattern like this – It actually kind of rocked my world, and I’m excited about doing suspended colourwork in a project in the round!  I hope Stanley likes the sweater!
