I’m at sixes and sevens this episode, so lets have a little knit and a slower pace!
it’s a long one! I look back at 2015 and think ahead a little.
We know that there are lots of gradient packs of coloured yarns out there….mini skeins of unicorn tails or teeny balls of yarns like gobstoppers, but there isn’t the same choice when it comes to the same for naturals there isn’t as much in terms of lovely packs or nuggets of naturally coloured loveliness.
However there are a few ways to work with what you might have in stash…and being a reader of KB you probably have quite a few natural British odds and ends, yes?! I thought so.
I am a wee bit Shetland Wool Week lagged! Get a cuppa and come ’round for a catch up
More pics from my Shetland Wool Week
I will tell you all about my Shetland Wool Week in the next episode of the podcast, but here are some of my images to hold you over until then. You can also listen to short Shetland Wool Week podcasts which I recorded each day of the event on the Shetland Wool Week blog!
As promised here is an info post for any questions you may have about the Breed Swatchalong.
I have created some Pinterest boards for British breed wool from each category of the swatch-along for inspiration and interest. Obviously I can’t guarantee stock levels or anything like that, but hopefully this will give you a little idea of what is out there.
