Coastal Fade is a stunning set of 5 skeins. Perfect for a sweater or cardigan, or even a super sized shawl or a blanket (it's YOUR choice!) Smiles.
Isn't this just so very beautiful? Fading from blues and teal all the way through to a mellow yellow. Inspired completely by the coastal area in which I am lucky enough to live, and I truly think these will be amazing knitted (or crocheted!) up. I'm saving one of these sets for my Sweater Club KAL in September, and I just can't wait. (Saying that, I do need to try and wait that long. I may well cast on something sooner with these beauties!) Haha :)
Today (March 5th) is Saint Piran's Day here in Cornwall, and to celebrate, I have created this really beautiful Cornish Tartan colourway for you all. If you don't know, St Piran is the patron saint of tin miners.
St Piran was a priest in the west of Ireland. He fell out with the king and they chucked him off a cliff and they tied a millstone round his neck. He managed to navigate a lump of granite with a hole in it across the Celtic sea and landed in Perranporth.
He then met a bunch of blokes with a fire and a load of black rocks all around. They lit the fire and they welcomed him. As the fire got hotter the black stones got hotter and this white liquid starting to pour out of it. St Piran's noticed this and observing that chemistry he gave us smelting which allowed us to smelt tin. This is where the white cross on the black rock comes from. And also the Cornish Flag.
I had great fun creating this colourway for today, and I truly adore how it turned out, and I hope that you love it too!
I have taken up walking again to improve my fitness, and one of the best things about it, is seeing all of the beautiful flowers starting to peek through.
In the midst of all of these terrible storms they are a reminder that spring is just around the corner.
Shown on 4 ply Sock Yarn (75% SW Merino/25% Nylon.)
Sock is just a term used for the yarn base, and it is in fact beautifully soft, and is in no way limited to making socks with! :)
There are currently 2 available immediately on the 4 Ply Poldale Sock Base.
Poldale is a favourite among knitters & crocheters, and is great for all types of projects, including socks because of it's nylon content. It is so unbelievably soft, and most definitely passes the squish and cheek test! I love it so much, I plan on creating a sweater in the Poldale as soon as my other projects are done.
All of my yarns are dyed with professional grade light and colour fast acid dyes in a smoke and pet free environment.
As the yarn is hand dyed, no two skeins will be exactly the same, so it is best to work each row with alternate skeins when working on a larger project.
Please note that colours may look different on various monitors, tablets and mobile phone screens
