Beautiful Projects – Blend no.1

September 22, 2016

0 Comments

Our studio must be one of the warmest places in the building just now – a new batch of Blend no.1 has arrived and there is wool everywhere. Getting it out into the hands of knitters is such an exciting thing, and we can’t wait to see what it becomes. So for today, here are some of the beautiful things made by knitters and crocheters using Blend no.1, which is now available to buy on our new website here.

First up is a stunning pair of Inglis Mitts, currently keeping the hands (and arms) of NappykintterB very cosy! These mitts were designed for Edinburgh Yarn Festival’s Wool Tribe publication, but are now available for all.

This is a project we’ve been following the progress of for a while! Missmabs Granny Square Blanket uses Blend no.1 as well as a little of the colours we had dyed for the Edinburgh Yarn Festival by Triskelion Yarn and Fibre. It’s so beautiful it’s making us all want to reach for our hooks…

This lovely cardigan was made by lavanya, and is the Foyles Cardigan design by Amy Herzog. It’s a CustomFit pattern where the pattern is generated to fit your exact measurements, and it really shows! 

I love how the pattern for the Willowbank shawl describes it as a ‘stealth blanket.’ It uses three skeins of Blend no.1 and this version by uuli looks like the perfect way to wrap yourself up in it! 

And another perfect way to wrap yourself in yarn – a sweater. This lovely cardigan is Coloring, designed by Katrin Schneider and is so sweet with the contrast edgings, and such great colour choices. This version was knit by PetraMar.

Birthday Sale Goes Live Today...

.... 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.
