Our steek dot scot website is our Virtual Yarns fireside, where I can pass on knitting knowledge by example, as ever it was done in the past, from mother to daughter, from sister to sister ... or from friend to friend.

Our mission is to ensure that making your Virtual Yarns project will be a thoroughly positive and confidence-building experience and that the result will be a design that you will enjoy for a lifetime.

Whether you are a beginner or an experienced knitter, I will be here at hand whenever you need guidance – on your own phone or device, wherever you are.

The Briodag kit includes three classes with over 3 hours of tutorials split into easy-to-find sections. They take you through the making of the scarf, beret and gloves. The scarf introduces you to openwork and short row shaping, while the beret and fingerless gloves provide detailed views and explanations of the intricacies of stranded knitting and shaping in the round. You will learn how to complete each of the items for a perfect finish. This project is suitable for all abilites from beginner onwards.

The Lapwing Collar is a step-by step class suitable for all abilities from beginner onwards. It provides an excellent and in-depth look at complex construction and shaping, and manipulating knitted pieces.

The Sulaire Shawl is an ideal introduction to openwork; the classes take you through the making of an openwork motif from start to finish.

The Staran Pullover is an exercise in textured pattern setting and cabling. This is suitable for anyone with basic knitting skills who can knit, purl, cast on and cast off, and who wants to progress to a textured project.
