A chat with Zoe from Junebug and Darlin

by Nuala Fahey July 10, 2019

We recently started stocking cross stitch kits from Junebug and Darlin both because we love them and also because we recognise that in parts of the world that aren't Scotland, there are months when knitting is not that enjoyable and it is good to have other craft options.

Zoe was kind enough to record a brief overview of her crafting philosophy. We have shared that over on Ysolda's instagram, but we are putting the transcript here.

Additional Joy colourways

by Nuala Fahey June 24, 2019

We have enjoyed seeing people's Joy mitts on Ravelry and Instagram and although the kits are nearly sold out now, it is a pattern that can be done in many different colours, depending on what flag/colour scheme you want to use.

We have made genderqueer, asexual, non-binary and pansexual flag charts.

A little less invisible

by Ysolda Ltd Collaborator June 21, 2019

This post first appeared on Whitney’s own blog and she kindly allowed us to share it with a wider audience. It has truly brought me so much joy to see knitters making and wearing their Joy mitts and, via a knitting project, feeling seen and visible. I know that Whitney’s experiences of what it means to choose to be visibly bi would resonate with many of you. Thank you for sharing your story with all of us Whitney.

Introducing DK versions of Ravelston and Stockbridge

by Ysolda Teague June 06, 2019

We’ve just released DK gauge versions of my popular Stockbridge and Ravelston patterns, which were originally published for a fingering weight yarn.They’re essentially designed around the same basic construction and with a similar fit, Stockbridge is a cardigan and Ravelston a pullover.  My goal with both is that they’ll be staple patterns you can use to build your handknit wardrobe, the kind of basic patterns that work for lots of different looks.

Lightweight cowls

by Ysolda Teague May 30, 2019

Lightweight cowls are the perfect alternative to a shawl or scarf when you want to be able to toss something on quickly and know it will stay in place. I’ve really enjoyed designing them over the last few years and now have a few options to fit different styles.

Pay what you can pattern pricing

Pay what you can pattern pricing

by Ysolda Teague May 10, 2019

Pricing patterns has always been one of the hardest parts of designing and I’ve often felt like the “standard” price of knitting patterns is both lower than other similar products (eg. indie sewing patterns) and doesn’t really reflect the amount of work that goes into them. At the same time, it’s totally fair to worry that rising pattern prices will price people out.
