It feels far from summer here in Brisbane at the moment! We have had almost continuous rain for what feels like months. Ideal weather for curling up on the lounge, knitting in hand.
Wet and cooler weather aside I have been enjoying working with cotton. To brighten my day and add a little colour to an otherwise grey day I have been playing with some of the newly arrived colours of Jo Sharp SoHo Cotton.
Why not add a splash of colour to your weekend and enjoy our SoHo Cotton while it is our Friday Favourite.
Stitches on needles and yarn on hooks
Bright cotton colours and new pattern books
Tangled Yarns bundles tied up with strings
These are a few of my favourite things!
Jo Sharp Cottons
My mind started racing the moment I opened our latest shipment of Jo Sharp and saw a feast of summery colours. We have new stock of all currently available colours of Jo Sharp Cotton both the Soho (DK) and Desert Garden (Aran).
There is still plenty of time left this summer to add a sweet cotton knit to your wardrobe.
A few pattern ideas to inspire…
There have been some changes recently in the supply of Jo Sharp yarns. The majority of her yarns are now being shipped on a monthly basis directly from Italy. This means that it can take a little longer for us to turn around custom orders. We plan to continue to stock the Jo Sharp range and offer custom orders, however we will be placing one large order in the middle of the month instead of several smaller orders throughout the month.
After being snowed in for several weeks in Scotland our delivery of one of my favourite designers, Ysolda Teague’s books, have finally arrived!
Whimsical Little Knits 2
Whimsical Little Knits 2 is the second in a series by Ysolda containing 12 gorgeous patterns. Little things that are fun to knit, use only a small amount of yarn and don’t take long to complete. You’ll find beautiful accessories to keep you and everyone on your gift list warm along with toys and fun things to add a little whimsy to your home.
The completed book is scheduled for release in March 2011 and we already have our pre-order in. If you are interested in adding a copy of Little Red to your collection please contact us to reserve your copy.

With the silly season over and a new year beginning it seems like a good time to focus on finishing some projects and clearing the decks for some new cast ons.
I know that I am busy trying to finish a few things that have looming deadlines! I am also dedicating some time to seriously reviewing my current projects, I plan to be harsh with myself ‘If you don’t love it, rip it!’.
We will resume our super popular Tangled Yarns Knit A Longs for a second year with some exciting new plans and projects in February!!
Inspiring your passion!
