As the days are getting colder and quiet evenings are spent at home, there is nothing quite like the comfort, both literally and figuratively of a handmade crocheted or knitted blanket.
Launching this week are two wonderful new books, Fair Isle Weekend by Mary J Mucklestone and Quince & Co’s This & That; 10 knits to keep you warm and cozy. Both of these books are an incredible resource of inspiring collections of knitwear which will keep you knitting and cosy all through the autumn and winter months. Along with Owlet, a new yarn from Quince & Co, we also have a round-up of some of our favourite yarns perfect for colourwork knitting including a new box set of 50 beautiful colours in The Border Mill’s North Coast Tweed!
We have some new online classes we would like to tell you about this week as well as some regular online workshops with new dates in the diary. We are very excited to be able to welcome Carolyn Bloom from Bloom Handmade Studios to our roster of talented artist-teachers at Loop.
