Yorkshire Yarnfest!

Yorkshire Yarnfest!

Thanks for joining me this morning for my live feed on @yorkshireyarnfest's account! If you missed the episode, I've saved my segment to my highlights and you can watch it at my @kettleyarnco instagram account.

As promised, here is a breakdown of the designs and yarn combos I discussed. You can see all of my projects on Ravelry at KettleYarnCo!

Northiam - non-superwash British Bluefaced Leicester


Shifty by Andrea Mowry - colours Swift, Amber, Thistle, Rosehip, Shale.⁣  See full blog post for other colour combos! 5 skeins for all sizes:

Ink & Brass by Dani Sunshine - Northiam fingering Amber and Rosehip⁠.

UPDATE: Amber is currently sold out, but I will get more dyed at the mill as soon as their dyer can get to it. I will be setting the listing to allow back orders and will update the listing when I have an eta. 

 I am looking at probably a couple months as they work through back logs.

If you need to start  this straight away, check out Farthing as an alternative with Rosehip, which would also be gorgeous!  Samphire/ Thistle and Seafoam /Barley would also be spectacular!

Also, check out #inkandbrasspullover on instagram to see my Beyul fiingering suggestions for alternatives in the yarn it was designed in!
