Strands of Joy is the latest book from Laine Publishing which means you know it will be full of gorgeous photographs and insightful information and patterns. Anna Johanna is the designer from Muurame, Central Finland. Known for her often romantic knits with a lot of love for details, textures and colours, Anna has brought us 20 versatile stranded colourwork patterns that are not only beautiful but a joy to knit.

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! 

The Fall/ Winter issue of Amirisu “From Land to Needles” is launching next Friday, the 6th of November. We thought we’d give you a sneak peek into some of the gorgeous patterns this beautiful magazine has to offer. And more treasures from Japan have arrived with new stock of Minä Perhonen buttons and fabric swatches!
