In the selection this week are favourite yarns we love for a range of projects and a selection of books for inspiration and ideas. A reminder that this week’s collection items are ONLY available until Tuesday 14th July then will be replaced by the next birthday sale update.
.... And it's a big one! Usually, the sale runs across a set number of days and things get pretty fast paced around here with shipping and customer service emails. With the need to continue to prioritise staff safety and a smaller team than usual, we decided to make this a whole birthday month.
Eight weeks ago, as school closures were announced here in the UK, we made the decision to pause shipping physical goods until we'd had time to take stock and figure out how to continue. After a week or so we came back with a plan: to do a small update every Monday, cycling through our stock so that only a limited range would be available each week.
Congratulations to our Glenmore KAL prize winners! If you're still working on your Glenmore this blog series will stay up, so you can refer back to the tutorial for any section as you knit at your own pace. For inspiration and motivation check out all the lovely Glenmore projects here.
We love this incredible, wearable hug of a shawl, which Ashtan Albright knit and we enjoyed her account of the process even more. It might be just the motivation you need if you're not sure you can knit lace.
You've made it to the very last Glenmore tutorial, and I'm so proud of you! I hope you have a sweater that makes you feel amazing, and that you've enjoyed the process. If Glenmore was your first garment know that you've built a great foundation for a handmade sweater wardrobe that's exactly what you want to wear.
Congratulations! If you’ve made it this far on your Glenmore sweater the only knitting you have left to do is the neckband. Don't worry if you're still working on the body or sleeves, there are no knitting police, and now more than ever we all deserve to cut ourselves some slack when it comes to productivity, especially for the things we're doing for fun.
How to knit the sleeves on Glenmore, and, if necessary, adjust them to fit your body perfectly. Did you see that the pattern includes a spreadsheet you can use to easily alter the sleeves without doing any maths.
