When I go silent around here, you can bet that either it is school holidays and the crazy crew are home or I am deep in the end game of a new collection.  The last 2 weeks, both coincided and today I waved goodbye to my 3 adorable but hard work children and we launched pre-orders for our new collection Three from the Top.

This is a collection of 3 cardigans, all worked from the top down, in sizes from baby to 5x.  I can't tell you how nervous we are to get this one out into the world.  While we both love to make, design and wear cardigans, we have been so nervous about releasing these into the wild.  Crochet garments get such a bad rap and we have worked hard to make these fitted and wearable and, well, gorgeous.

You can read all about the various designs over here or if you need no further selling, then hop on over to etsy to preorder.  Due to the fact that the official launch is at Wonderwool this weekend, we have had to limit the number of preorders to make sure that everyone attending Wonderwool is able to get a copy.  If you can't make it to Wales and want to get one of the first copies, buy today!!

The Shawl Project is Live!

Its a week of 2 birthdays, a trip to London, Easter break, and the arrival of my mother. I envision there will be a lot of coffee drunk over the next 7 days!

If that wasn't enough today marks the release of The Shawl Project Ebook.  Six gorgeous patterns, all using 100g of 4ply yarn.  Joanne has written fantastic instructions for not only making, but designing your own shawls. 

Now, go forth and crochet. 


The Crochet Project: Shawls

While the digital release of The Crochet Project's Book, Shawls, is still a few weeks away we are hopefully going to print with the book this weekend in preparation of Edinburgh Yarn Festival.  

In it you will find 6 gorgeous 1 skein shawls, all designed by Joanne. Each has a different construction and highlights the beautiful hand-dyed beautifully.  The printed book also comes with a chapter on the ins and outs of construction, so whether you are looking to design your own shawl or just make beautiful things, it will be the book for you. The patterns are available exclusively at EYF, but then will be released online in the coming weeks.

But enough talk, how about a peek at the shawls?

The are even more beautiful in real life, so if you are at EYF, do come find the stall to give them a squish!
