The Indie Burgh Yarn Crawl was a great success and I had lots of fun visiting the finer yarn shops in Edinburgh during this fun filled yarny weekend. I was chatted up by a five year old on the train, proving I have Still Got It. Obviously. I also attended Clare Devine’s Evening With Socks which was very informative; I’m looking forward to putting some of my new-found skills into action!
This one’s all about the kits, ’bout the kits, no trouble. I spotted some fab Latvian Mitt kits at Be Inspired Fibres for various different kinds of mitts from across Latvia and from different historical periods. They’s be a perfect challenge for yourself or gift for a knitty friend. Be warned: the patterns call for 1.5mm needles…
A slightly easier option if you want to try something a bit different is yarnundyed-knits, a new kit brand specialising in undyed yarns. I like the look of the Snowflake Hat which comes with 100% baby yak and 100% baby camel yarns in their natural colours. If kits aren’t your thing, but you like the idea of experimenting with natural yarns, they also sell their yarn separately from the kits.
