Hello 2017 and whats new?

Whats new in 2017? Well, we have a lot planned….some changes to the office that I will tell you about in May as they start to happen, new yarns to look forward to and a couple of patterns I am designing. I’m also thinking of adding a small free gift with each purchase, starting next month so read all about it, as they say, at the beginning of February. I have been overwhelmed by all the comments about the Advent CAL I did for fun last December, and might think about doing something a bit more organised and offer a kit this year. I’ll think about that, and if you might be interested in a kit, can you let me know….




The Petit4 kits are a great way to try our yarns and see why we call them Gorgeous! So whats new? I have recently re-designed the patterns in the Petit4 kit. The patterns are now a lacy scarf which can be a cowl by joining the ends, done in crochet or knitting. They are now colour named, so you can choose which colourway you would like, and I may add to the colourways if I can. The pattern is also now available on its own as “Two’s company”. (Thanks to Steph Thornton of Perran Yarns for her help and inspiration.) What do you think?

I have also got the Petit4 Grand kits listed by colourway. These have been very popular as gifts, and I only have a few left, but more will be is stock soon, keep watching the website…..

I have 2 new patterns for a summer, and a winter shrug that I am designing. The summer shrug is knitted in Nurturing Fibres Eco fusion, a lovely 50:50 blend of organic cotton and bamboo, and has a lacy texture and wavy edging. The winter shrug will be a similar construction, but will be made in Purely Gorgeous and feature a cable design.  Talking of patterns, the Oxford wrap made with Purely Gorgeous Merino Aran which featured in The Knitter magazine in the Autumn is now back on the site and yarn and patterns are available. Why not treat yourself, the total cost for organic merino yarn, pattern and postage is less than £40 and the garment suits everyone!

Lastly, I have started talking to a new supplier of hand dyed yarns and I’m very excited to see how this project is going to develop. I hope to have the new yarns available in May, but will tell you more as things develop. Watch this space!

Thanks to Liz in Plymouth for pointing out a problem with the Inspire pattern. If you have bought it and not yet made it, these are the corrections:

Row 3. Knit 5 stitches, *K2tog, yon, K2* repeat to last 7 stitches, then K2tog, yon, K5

Row7. Knit7, *K2tog, yon, K2* repeat to last 5 stitches, K5.

Happy New Year friends.
