BRAND NEW – The Boardwalk Collection – the blog tour begins!

For many months now I’ve been squirrelling away on a huge project — my first collection of designs for Kettle Yarn Co.! It is finally ready for release, so without further ado, may I introduce… drumroll… The Boardwalk Collection!

Available individually by the designers directly on Ravelry, the collection of six patterns was inspired by walking down a historic British pier and the vibrant designs capture the light-hearted excitement of a day at the seaside.

From the publication text:
The thrill of walking down a buzzing seaside pier is the inspiration behind Kettle Yarn Co.’s new The Boardwalk Collection in the new luminous hues of ISLINGTON DK.

Featuring six vibrant designs from Renée Callahan, Rachel C. Brown, Rachel Coopey, Isabell Kraemer, Maria Magnusson and me, the collection spans summer to autumn with heirloom items you’ll love all year!

We’ve decided to showcase all the amazing patterns in the collection with a grand blog tour! The designers will be talking about their designs and we also have some lovely reviewers and podcasts scheduled, so you can find out what they think of the Islington DK first hand.

There will be giveaways and a KAL later on, so join my Ravelry group to keep on top of the offers and follow the tour to see all the goodies we have in store for you.

Hope you all love it as much as I do! 😉

Sparkling Talavera!

Some of you will have also seen my new FO Talavera from the latest Pom Pom Quarterly, as I am so thrilled with it I have been splashing images of it EVERYWHERE! ;-P

A super quick knit that takes only 71g= 378.5 meters of one 533m skein of Westminster, the lace is super easy and it only takes a couple weeks. Plenty of time to whip one up for this summer!

I’ve restocked the Westminster baby camel/silk Gold Rush and Florence for this week’s update and now have an incredible, sparkling range of hues available for anyone planning a precious Talavera of your own!

Shop update tomorrow – Friday July 3rd – at 5pm GMT.

A teal bag with a lining of gray yarn balls and a tan leather strap.So many indie dyers. One email.
