Dear Knitter,

This month we have a lovely new design filled with lush summer colours. The Firebirds cardigan features patterns in jewel-like colours on a background of rich green, set off with a deep rib. This slightly more complex stranded design is the perfect project to work on through the autumn, taking summer colours with you into winter. You can find the Firebirds Cardigan here.

The Firebirds was styled with a green needlecord skirt for our photoshoot with Sylwia, and we also photographed it on Rebecca with a more casual styling of jeans, which you can see here.

For another injection of colour we have added the Creative Course 1 prospectus to our website. You can now see all of the Creative Course 1 example hats in a variety of shoots and read more about the inspiration for each hat. You can find the Creative Course 1 prospectus in the Creative Course 1 details.

 

A variety of our patterncard kits are back in stock including our Oregon Autumn Cardigan and Vest; the Red Jacobite Rose Jacket; the Henry VIII and the Meadowseet Cardigan. You can find all of our patterncard kits here.

 

Another design back in stock is the Widdicombe Fair in both red and blue colourways. We took these beautiful baby blankets out to the West Side of Lewis on a sunny day to show them off more fully. Click here for the Widdicombe Fair Blue and here for the Widdicombe Fair Red.

During our somewhat changeable summer we have been enjoying some short but beautiful spells out on the croft. With dramatic weather over the beach and the wildflowers blooming on the croft, my Highland heifers, Emma and Oona have had some lovely views to enjoy whilst chewing the cud.

The year is now on the turn and so we will be back next month with a new hat set design to see you into the coming colder days.

Happy Knitting,

Alice
