Introducing the Frail scarf

Colouring outside the lines can be irresistible! In the Frail scarf, irregular leaves scattered along – and just over the edges of – a brioche pathway create a playful but restrained elegance.

I’m offering Indie Untangled readers 30% off until 14 December, using the code INDIEFRAIL. And the pattern even includes a discount for the gorgeous recommended yarn!

All the Holiday Knitting!

If you are looking for quick and gratifying holiday gift knitting, here are six designs that also come with adult beverages! Each design is fairly simple and several of them are designed to use with that speckly DK that you might be hoarding from the Indie Untangled trunk show at Rhinebeck.

At the end of each pattern is a special winter cocktail or mocktail for you to enjoy during you knitting breaks (or let’s face it – during your knitting “non” breaks)!

These patterns are available individually or as in the “Winter Light” e-book with a nice holiday discount.

New Pattern Releases

Hey all, happy Friday! I have just released a set of new patterns (Inseparable & Ravenhill) and I’m super stoked about them! These were designed with the Christmas season in mind, and a desire to create something that would be quick and fun to knit for that gift-giving time of the year. I don’t know about your home, but ours can get pretty crazy busy, and so to have something really gratifying (instant-gratification, anyone ?) on and off the needles in a few days can be a gift in itself. 🙂

This is a fun collaboration with Lauren of Lolodidit Yarn and she has put together some awesome kits which can be found on her website.

There is currently a discount on both the pattern and the kits, so hop on over for some eye-candy!

We are also hosting a Tis The Season KAL in the Narrow Path Designs Ravelry group for all the patterns and currently have an introductory discount until Friday, 11/23, no coupon code needed. I hope you like them as much as we do!

Have a great day and I hope something makes you smile today! 🙂

New pattern releases and yarn to match!

We have been very busy over the last few months at ECY Shedquarters. The culmination of this hard work has been the release of two new patterns for sale on our website and on Ravelry.

First up is the Laverton shawl. This sumptuously soft shawl is a delight to knit, pairing three of our favourite yarns to create a beautiful wearable piece. The delightful halo of Eldwick lace adds a touch of luxury to this pretty accessory and the splash of Nateby adds the perfect amount of sparkle. The third yarn used in the shawl is Carlisle Fingering, although any of our 4ply/fingering weight yarns would be suitable. We have put together some suggested colour combinations for this shawl which you will find on the home page of our website.

The second pattern release is the Gatekeeper cowl. This is a simple, quick-knit cowl designed to make the most of a single skein of Pendle Aran. It uses a combination of 2×2 rib and an easy to memorise lace pattern. We have a lovely selection of colourways across our two aran weight yarns, Pendle Aran and Bowland Aran, with something for every taste. Just head to the Aran yarn section of the website to see them all.

After all this we are in need of a break and so are treating ourselves to a week’s holiday from Saturday 17th-Sunday 25th November. Orders can still be placed on the website but will not be processed until after our return on Monday 27th November. Responses to emails will also be delayed during this time. 20% of the value of orders placed during this week will be donated to a charity close to our hearts.

Did you know that we ship worldwide? Full details can be found on the Shipping Info page of our website.

Peppermint Mocha Sock Kit Preorders

The winds have changed and the feeling of winter has crept into the air. This time of year there is nothing better than a nice pair of hand knit socks to keep your toes warm. C.C. Almon of Java Purl Designs and I have created another wonderful seasonal-inspired sock kit based on her Peppermint Mocha Sock pattern. Each kit and will include a skein of my Snug base yarn in the Peppermint Mocha colorway, a Ravelry pattern download code and this cute hand-stamped progress keeper.

Originally, back in 2016 when this pattern was first published, I created a darker peppermint colorway. But this year I decided to give it an update and this new version starts with a mint green base and has splashes of greens, pinks, browns and a few other colors mixed in.

Please keep in mind when ordering this product that this is a stock photo and there are no dye lots. This means that color distribution and saturation will vary greatly from skein to skein, from kit to kit, and from what is depicted in these photo. Preorders for these kit are available starting today and will close on Sunday, Nov. 18 at 8 p.m. EST. I can only make a select number of kits based on the supplies I have on hand and all kits will ship in late November or early December 2018.
