Prue and Another Baby Lush

It is a rainy day in September and all I want to do is sit here with my tea and knitting. Autumn appears to be here today. I’ve had a few bits and bobs to do in the shop this morning, but it looks like I will get my heart’s desire all this afternoon. At […]

Wool of the Month July 2014: Rainbow Heirloom

Some of you Ravelry fiends may have already seen my latest version of Lush by Emily Wessel of Tin Can Knits. I was holding off releasing photos of said garment until the start of the month, as this project uses July’s Wool of the Month. The secret is out and Rainbow Heirloom is here! Rainbow […]

The results are mostly Delight 4ply with a sprinkling of Splendor 4ply, as well a new sock base (love!). The online shop should be updated again this weekend if […]
