The Caravan of Love Shawl - will be sold as part of a package via Krityum Handmade exclusively for a couple of months - will provide further details as and when. I used Thums Up and Blush in the superwash merino sock yarn base.

You can watch Caravan of Love as sung by the Housemartins here (I love it and could sing it all day!)

There is also a knitted version of the same shawl in production.


Hoppa Socks - amazing pattern from Lena Strandberg and lovely grey yarn from Drops Fable.

Holiday Socks - these are self-designed using a pretty dot stitch from 400 Knitting Stitches by Potter Craft. I'm using 2.25mm needles and Aegean Sea sock yarn from Betsy Makes on Etsy.

Mum Socks - easy peasy vanilla socks for car knitting using Regia Design Line 4ply in the colour Nissedal by Arne & Carlos.

New Stuff

Christmas Cookie yarn from Nicola Luke aka Fabric Fancies on Etsy.

Designer Knits from Sarah Hatton and Martin Storey available here.
