We have a Pom Pom trunk show in store and some more EYF news to share, so read on!
Brown Eyed Susan
Brown-Eyed Susan is a crescent-shaped shawl with petal pleats at the bottom edge. It can be knit in one solid colour, striped with a matching or contrast colour petal pleat border, or given a “brown eye” by knitting the first 23 rows in a solid colour.
Our newest sample should really be called “Green Eyed Susan”. It’s knit in Uncommon Thread BFL Singles; Fjord and Avocat (two of the five new colours from Uncommon Thread). This large sized sample took 134g of Fjord and 56g of Avocat, but a smaller version can be made from under 100g of each!
Brown Eyed Susan comes in two sizes: We’ve made the larger version above. You can see our project details on Ravelry here.
Pom Pom Trunk Show
The new Spring issue of Pom Pom Quarterly is in the shop now! Pom Pom have been kind enough to lend us their samples for a trunk show. Come in to the shop, check them out or try them on! The trunk show will be in Loop from today (February 23rd) until Sunday March 11th.
We love the cover sweater, Durumi designed by Isabell Kraemer, which uses the gorgeous Daruma Genmou DK. It’s very soft and lofty. Perfect for a cool spring day!
Edinburgh Yarn Festival 2018
We’ll bring a range of our most recent patterns to Edinburgh. We know many of you love to cast on while you’re visiting Edinburgh, and need a printed pattern to get on with. You can expect to see Brown Eyed Susan, Pinwheel Mitts and some special kits we have planned.
Ce will be our guest of honour, on our stand (E5), on Friday and Saturday each day from 2:00-3:00. Please come and meet her!
We randomly chose a winner from Instagram. The winner is Amanda Price! Congratulations, We’ll contact you for your shipping address and get those out to you!
This week (and every week before EYF) we have another prize giveaway! In celebration of our new version of Brown Eyed Susan and Five New Colours of Uncommon Thread, we’re offering a copy of the pattern and a skein each of Uncommon Thread, BFL Singles in Fjord and Avocat ~ enough to make the smaller size of Brown Eyed Susan.
There are two ways to win! You can do both, if you want to double your chances!
