I have just received a few sets of Chiaogoo’s New Red Lace Twist “Shorties”.  This new system looks so  amazingly cute, neat and tiny.  They are perfect for knitting socks and sleeves, and for small circumferences in the round and especially for people who do not like using DPNs.  The combo tips will be sold separately later in the year.

New in the shop – Knit Cosmic Strings

Delighted to be stocking a new Edinburgh based indie dyer in the shop – Knit Cosmic Strings.isla_280x280.20498525_ntmgd13n

The team consists of Phu and Bea, both are biologists by day, but completely bitten by the hand dyeing bug, they spend their evenings creating amazing hand dyed wool!

I discovered them on Instagram and Etsy and I am amazed how they have managed to develop such a beautiful and contemporary range of hand painted yarns in a very short space of time.IMG_3805

Their colourways remind me of the beautiful patio gardens dotted around Marchmont, the Meadows and the Grange, where the shop is located.IMG_3807

header_logoI am now also starting to stock  Hedgehog Fibres – currently their Sock Yarn,  Skinny Singles and Mini Skeins.

 

Beata dyes her yarn in Cork, Ireland and covers the wide spectrum of colours, tones and moods.  IMG_3601She is immensely popular and has a wide international following.

I have been following her progress probably for over eight years, from when she was a very small indie dyer.   Her colours and choice of bases continue to inspire me.

She has some lovely free patterns on her website that knit really well with her hand dyed  yarns, but her yarns have really inspired many of Stephen West’s designs.
