Perfect for quick gifts, Birdwatch Beanie is a cozy, comfortable hat to keep your head warm while you are out in nature or curled up on the couch. Inspired by my new found love of birdwatching while working from home during quarantine and discovering getting outdoors and exploring the nature trails at the Audubon. Knit in one skein of Jilly and Kiddles Aurora Aran weight 100% Superwash Merino on size 8 needles. This ribbed and cabled beanie knits up so fast, you may want more than one!
The yarn updates are coming thick and fast now so with no further ado allow me to introduce Keswick Aran! As you may be able to guess from the name this is the same tweedy Merino yarn we have had in fingering and DK weight but in aran weight. If you have tried either of the other weights you will know that it is lovely soft Superwash Merino with donegal neps in cream, brown and black throughout. I love this blend so much and dyeing it is super-fun. On lighter colourways the darker neps show through and on darker colourways the lighter neps are more prominent. It just adds another exciting dimension to the yarn and really inspires my creativity. This yarn went live on the website on Friday but we have some stock still available. Colours in the images are Woodland, Faded Bloom and Slate.
The week before we added some Askham 4ply to the website to support the release of ViTalina Craft’s Lacystorm Sweater pattern which you can find on Payhip and Ravelry. Askham 4ply is a luxurious blend of baby alpaca and silk which some will remember from our mill dyed range of the same name. Now it is only available as a hand dyed yarn and we have a really nice selection available on the website. Colours shown in the images are Cloudberry, Scorched Moors and Meadow Rue. You will also find our Festive Fun colourway available on both Pendle Chunky and Nateby 4ply, these are likely to be the last batches of this colourway for 2020 so don’t leave it too late if you want to add a skein or two to your stash.
Over on the blog you will find a post about Christmas posting dates. If you are thinking of ordering but want items to arrive before Christmas please take a look at the blog post and allow plenty of time! There is also a new Shedcast up on the Eden Cottage Yarns YouTube channel so please do check that out.

While the Thanksgiving story I was taught as a child is problematic, nonetheless it has been the one holiday my family has celebrated since I left my childhood home decades ago. The size of the gathering has shrunk considerably as time has passed, and we decided it was more important that my mom will be around to celebrate her 91st Thanksgiving than for us to gather together this year. Perhaps you spent the day like me, cuddled under a blanket, watching old movies and enjoying some knitting or crocheting time.
In a nod to the day, I’ve released my newest color on BFL Sock, Cornbread and Cranberry. It joins the palette of seasonal colors that evoke winter holidays to me. I have a deep love of Bluefaced Leicester-you can’t beat the soft yet crisp hand and its durability. I’ve also dyed it on my Neptune Merino DK. Perfect for creating cozy gifts for your loved ones.
These, and the rest of my shop are 20% off through Tuesday, December 1. No coupon code required.
Additionally, I will be making a matching gift of 5% as part of Indie Untangled Giving Tuesday to Camba, so if you make a purchase, make sure to forward Lisa your receipt! Thank you for all your support during this difficult year. Being an independent small business is always a challenge, but with so many opportunities shut down this year, it is especially gratifying to be able to pay something forward.
Wicked Enchantress has been released. The pattern will be on sale for 20% off through December 2nd for an extra wicked release sale.
Sometimes those single skeins of yarn are so beautiful it seems like they were made by some Wicked Witch to tempt you. This triangle cowl is the perfect project to use up those single skeins of worsted-weight that you brought home without a project in mind. The pattern uses just 150 yards of worsted-weight yarn. You can even use up multiple skeins because the pattern includes two different border options; Delilah’s Dots or Jezebel Jubilee. The lace patterns are simple so they would be great for a beginner or a relaxing project for an experienced lace knitter. Give in to the wicked yarn enchantress and snatch up those single skeins!
This cowl is knit top down starting with a basic flat heart shawl construction, it is then joined in the round for the last few rounds to create a triangle cowl shape. You can even use multiple single skeins up because the pattern includes two different border options; Delilah’s Dots and Jezebel Jubilee. Delilah’s Dots is shown in Pussy Willow (yellow and grey yarn) and Jezebel Jubilee is shown in Nostalgia (red yarn). Lace sections include both charted and written instructions.
Also join in a Knit Along for this pattern and Foul Temptress! Knit either pattern now through December 31st to enter to win prizes. You can enter by posting an FO in the KAL Thread or using #wickedenchantressalong on Instagram!
