Sock clubs, lace clubs, fibre clubs and shop update.

I am really enjoying preparing the club yarns and fibres today, alot of thought went into these; there is some deliciously soft alpaca for the lace club, some gorgeous high twist yarns for the 12 month sock club, where the colours reflect the broody skies we have been having, and also, I am totally in love with the shop update, totallly totally in love with it. Its well annoying though, this bland light in cardiff is making things come out much blander than the colours are warmer than they seem in the pic's. There is more to go on, but I will wait for tomorrow.

Right so most of the yarns are inspired by the january weather, dark inky skies, and the dark greens, that seems to be left in the foliage.

Here are my favourites; This sock is warmer than the photo, its just delcious,


Then there was the mohair which I was trying to perfect a certain colour, and I ended up doing a scrummy palate of smokey mauves, a few of these combined would make the most wonderful stripey garment or scarf.

    The new colours are just amazing!!!
    How can anyone not be tempted???? They also reflect bleak, wet, wintry Norfolk...

  2. I'm so looking forward to this sock club. All the yarns here and on the shop update are so inspiring. Here's to a year full of fabulous colour and wonderful textures!
