SHOP UPDATE  classic sophistication…with a twist!

January 20, 2017

This week’s update sees Islington Bluefaced Leicester / Silk neutrals restocked and a few new goodies! If you’ve been waiting for an ombré of warm browns like Nutkin, Squirrelly and Light Squirrelly, now is your chance!

Edinburgh Yarn Festival’s Wool Tribe 2017 – The Festival Companion Magazine is now available for pre-order and you can now get it directly on the Kettle shop along with your yarn.

Whether or not you can make it to this year’s Edinburgh Yarn Festival the companion magazine will be a lasting souvenir of the UK’s premier hand-knitting event. Take part in the woolly celebrations even from afar!

This year’s edition features 6 exclusive accessory patterns by some of our favourite designers:

Belsyde – a triangular shawl designed by Renée Callahan in Kettle Baskerville ‘Dawn‘ and Islington ‘Siren Call‘.

Traquair – a hat & mitten set by Amanda B. Collins. You could use any of my 400m/100g fingering weight yarns for this – Baskerville with Islington would make a lovely contrast in texture.
Gladsmuir – a cushion cover designed by Jane Crowfoot. Baskerville would make this hardwearing and unforgettable.
Ormiston – a large shawl/wrap by Francesca Hughes. This would be amazing in Beyul DK or Islington DK.
Macmerry – socks by Clare Devine. Use Twist fingering for hardwearing socks.
Sunwick – a cosy cowl by Donna Smith. Use Beyul DK for this one!

The magazine is a limited edition print publication which comes with a Ravelry download code inside the magazine. A digital-only version will NOT be available, so get your hard copy now before it sells out like last year’s edition!

I’ll be shipping as soon as the copies arrive, so order your skeins with the magazine and wear your new finished objects at the show and show them off!

Get your Wool Tribe!

New this week is Sulphur, a screechingly bright fluro-yellow in Islington Bluefaced Leicester / silk fingering. Shown above with Baskerville DARK and Beyul Iceberg and below right with Old Smoke and Icicle , this colour is the punchiest accent yarn in the Kettle palette and will kick any shawl into high definition!

As mentioned above – all the Islington browns are back in stock this week. From left below – Nutkin, Squirrelly and Light Squirrelly.
Here is a throwback to 2014 and my luminous Stones and Stripes wrap in Light Squirrelly.
Also restocked this week is Baskerville DARK – British Gotland / Exmoor Blueface / silk in dyed Leaden:

This is the dark grey used in my personal grey version of the Bovey cardigan with Dawn, which some of you tried on at Yarnporium:

These are all in shop now for your making pleasure!
