How about colourway no.5 out of 10 for our MAD Batch update this Friday @9pm BST
This is 'IC2177 - Seagull' and its inspo pic
All skeins in the update are available on 2 bases - Fusion (75/25 SW Merino / Nylon) and Continuum (SW BFL) but in limited quantities so if you see any you like you should grab them when they go live.
Remember all skeins donate £3 to charity
Mini skein kits are now listed on my site (link in profile)! I have a few available of each. 435 yards. Perfect for accent stripes, small shawls, and would also pair well with a full size skein or two for a larger project👍
The 3rd colourway coming in Fridays MAD Batch update is 'Dark Matter'
Swipe for insp pic and remember these are all OOAKs and no guarantee of repeating but also each order placed with us will enter you into the raffle to win a £40 voucher for use in our store

About once or twice a year I allow myself an entirely selfish & expensive yarn project. Not for business, not for pattern writing. I do not count stitches or hours or costs & honestly most the time I don't pay attention enough that I could ever replicate another one. This yarn I purchased back at Stitches United (@stitchesevents ) back in the spring knowing it would be a special ME project. I worked up this shawl/scarf/kerchief/neckthing on our anniversary road trip to Maine back in May.
I have no idea how I made it & frankly it didn't come out the shape I was hoping for & I will never make another. But I am in love with the textures & colors & am just now able to enjoy it in the cool weather after finally sewing in all the ends last night! Ladies & gents, I give you the Fire-Drake Scarf (#lotrnerdforlife )
Light speckled one= dragonstone by @bluehillsfibers fibers
Orange by Valley Yarns with @manosdeluruguay
Dark one= eye of sauron by @blackcatfibers
You know how in Patch Adams (the movie!) they grant wishes to some of their patients and the little old lady wants to swim in a pool of macaroni and cheese (I can’t remember if I’m making the cheese part up 😅)? WELL I want to swim in a pool filled with mini skeins!

These will be with me at the @makeologyca holiday market November 18 at the AGH 🙌🏻
Oh hello there 👋🏻 it’s me, Ali. It’s been a while since I’ve posted and I genuinely miss you guys! Life has been so chaotic and honestly I’ve been in a tiny bit of a funk with dyeing/knitting. Thankfully, I got my mojo back this weekend and am FINALLY having a shop update next Sunday, October 28th at 7pm featuring sock sets, single skeins, AND Tecumseh Sweater kits!! 🙌🏻💃🏻😍 will you be there?! (...or will you be square? 😒🤣)
I LOOOOVE AUTUMN!😄 I had to get get a picture with these beautiful red leaves before they're gone. I think they go well with this knit design, what do you think? Pattern coming soon. #essenceofautumnyarn
You know that feeling? The one where you’ve just fed your baby, they’ve been burped and now they are happily snuggled into you....and then they spit up their entire feed, down your chest and into your bra? I do. 🙋🏻♀️
Long post warning!!! I need more yarn like I need a hole in the head. But when at a knitting retreat....All dyers are tagged, but a little explanation for posterity. On the right is a purple beauty from @owlaboutyarn who had dyed up this amazing skein just for the retreat and it was a wonderful addition to a gorgeous goody bag given to retreat attendees (along with a mug - currently in the dishwasher! And some other gorgeous treats which I forgot to take out of the goody bag for the photo - but thanks to @downsheepylane @yarnnyarns @kralalien @ruth_crafts for all the lovely donations (and I may have sent a little donation in too 😉)). There was also a bring and take table where I managed to pick up some Hot Socks sock yarn (socks for Mr E perhaps?) and a Knit Picks skein. And then the market place happened. I love @downsheepylane 50/20 sock sets and was lucky to pick up another, along with some of Miranda’s @mirandamaeturton yarns - another 50/20 sock set and 2 skeins to knit something to remind me of the retreat. Time is a funny concept and now I’m back home it’s hard to believe that just 24 hrs ago we were in full retreat mode. It was an amazing weekend and I will be podcasting this week so will give you the lowdown then. But a final huge thank you to everyone who stopped and chatted at the marketplace and who treated themselves! To the tutors @yarnaddictanni and @reneecallaghan for taking my knitting skills on a step further (I can now knit with my left hand, do colourwork (must work on my tension!) and brioche. And to Jennie and Zoe @owlaboutyarn and @pinsandneedlesuk - thank you isn’t enough for what you organised this weekend. It was perfect and I will always have a happy memory of the best weekend and new friends made. Looking forward to Stratford now 😀

Wooooooo. You guys are keeping me knitting up a storm, and I’m so very thankful. A huge thank you to everyone who showed up today at @theparktheatre to shop small during the @ohforcraftssake Market. It was so nice to chat with many of you, and I got a kick out of sharing my new hand dyed yarns and cheeky knitting totes with other makers. The excitement people can share over a love of handcrafted is really special! 💗
These socks with their lovely flower motifs are just gorgeous. How fitting that these floral inspired socks were knit using my Garden Party colourway dyed on Highland Tweed Multi. @emilyringelman did a fantastic job with this design for @yarncrush Sock Crush Box. Swipe to see the yarn used. #essenceofautumnyarn

Aprovecho a decirles a todas las mamis FELIZ DÍA, porque en Argentina se festeja hoy!
Les dejo esta fotito de ayer, con una paleta de colores que son como la vida misma!
Hasta mañana y que tengáis un día lleno de color!
Did you catch my insta story this morning? If not, I let you all know the first colorway that will be part of the Winter Wonderland Collection! ⛄️
Hint: it’s the yarn that’s featured in this photo! 😉 #toastedmarshmallow
Raise your 🙋 if you're a knitter! Actually, I was a knitter far before I was a crocheter (try 13 years before!). My 6th grade teacher taught me during recess #introvert when other kids in my grade where playing kissing dares behind the playground (yikes), I was knit-purling my way through the year and staying out of trouble. #narrowlyescaped
What's your story of learning your craft?? Tag a knitter friend below!
Yarn is available in our Shop Update: Laxon, 100% Merino Worsted naturally dyed with Indigo and Lac, 3 skeins left
Side Note: My go-to knitting needles (since we don't make them #cryallthetears ) is @knitterpride Smooth, wooden, and gorgeous! 😍 #notsponsored
