So finally I can tell you a bit about what I have been working on. Tonight I have launched a shawl club with Sam from Unbelieva-wool. I am beyond excited – her yarns are beautiful and I have had great fun plotting this behind the scenes with her! So the plan is that you can sign up for a series of yarn boxes, each one about 6 weeks apart, and each one will contain a skein of her yarn which has been dyed to suit the pattern I have written (all of which are new and have not been published before), and a extra something that will help you to do the pattern, plus the pattern itself. The yarns will be either standard merino sock yarn or a luxury base. And I am so giddy tonight with the interest in this. We will do the club for about 8 months and then see if folk want us to continue.
The patterns themselves will be a mixture of styles and shapes to keep it interesting and I am really pleased with how they are coming out so far! Once everyone has received their boxes I will do a little reveal on this page.
If you are interested in signing up, click the link here and complete the online form. The first invoices will be payable by the end of March so we know what numbers we are working with. If you live outside the UK, it is worth knowing that Sam is happy to ship overseas if you let her know on the sign up form so that she can tweak the price to allow for the extra postage.
In the meantime I am also working on some other patterns to go up on Ravelry on the 7th April, including the Moo-Ra dress, a hat pattern, a rather lovely wrap, and a few other bits and bobs. And as a special thank you to you, my blog-watchers, I will be putting up some free patterns on this site over the next few weeks.
