Welcome back to the Loop blog! We hope you all had a lovely holiday season, and we want to wish you a (slightly belated) happy new year! January is often very grey and cold for those in the northern hemisphere, so this week we wanted to look at the fabulous book Knits About Winter by Emily Foden, which was published just over a year ago. We are also running a really exciting giveaway this week, so keep reading to find out more!
This week we are so happy to announce our newest pattern at Loop – the Silvestre Mitts, designed by Skeindeer for Loop. The word ‘Silvestre’ is old Latin for ‘woodlands’. These luxurious mitts are knitted in Jamieson’s Shetland Spindrift, which is a lovely pure Shetland wool, with a 2ply spin. This is a favourite yarn of Eli, the lovely lady behind Skeindeer. This pattern is wonderful as it is for fingerless mitts or full mittens and from child to adult extra large sizes. Something for everyone! And we have made beautiful kits for you and are giving two away this …
