Your Cart is Empty

New

It’s March, which is just about spring and I’ve been doing some spring cleaning – both of my real and virtual homes. The zen cart shop is gone, because it was acting up and I couldn’t be bothered fixing it. Ravelry is now handling all of my downloads but you don’t need to be a member. At the moment the only issue is that if you want to buy multiple patterns you’ll have to purchase them individually, but there will be a shopping cart available soon. What do you think of the new look?
I made a new beret for spring, but it’s not the one I’ve been sharing my work on recently. This is just something I started last night and finished off this morning. It’s a good thing that my button collection is teeny tiny because I had a hard enough time choosing.

I think I made the right decision though.

You can probably tell, but the buttoning is false, because it would be totally unnecessary for it actually to function and it means that you don’t have to fuss with matching the button and buttonhole size.

The looks a lot like seed stitch from the outside but it’s actual reverse linen stitch so it’s nice and firm and comfortably smooth on the inside. I love the way it contrasts with the drapiness of the rest of the hat.

And the poor red beret I’ve been struggling with? Well I got a beret out of the single ball of yarn. The slight problem is that it’s much too small.

I will get my red beret though. Today is K1’s grand opening and they have some brilliantly red Orkney Angora that’s destined to become a red beret that actually fits me.

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.
