Last week we announced that we’d paused shipping temporarily while we decided how best to keep our team safe and follow the government guidelines. After many, and still ongoing, discussions as a team, we have decided to open the online store for limited shipping. This week we’re offering a range of yarns and notions for the Glenmore sweater which are available to order now. We’ll be shipping on Thursday, and orders may be closed when we reach the capacity for what one person can safely manage. We’ll aim to ship orders received by midnight BST on Wednesday, on the Thursday of that week. Our highest priority is staff safety, and in order to maintain that we may not be able to ship your order as quickly as usual, thank you for your patience.
We know that, for some of you, crafting is hugely important to your mental health, and that some of you are using knitting in your time off to help you get through the difficult work you’re doing in healthcare and other key services. We want to support your crafting needs if we can and, in addition to our limited shipping releases we’ll also be offering a special orders service for those who need it.
You can find out more about this plan, and the collections we’ll be releasing over the coming weeks here.

Does the phrase "continue to work in pattern while increasing or decreasing" make you panic. You're not alone! Follow the examples in this tutorial to tackle shaping in any pattern with confidence.
Our stuidio manager Bex explains how she added short row bust darts to two of her own sweaters projects. If you're stuck on how to combine darts and patterns her examples should help.
One of my favourite tricks that will make your knitting vastly more efficient. Almost any cable pattern can be worked more quickly by ditching the cable needle.
