It feels a lot like knitting weather!

May 10, 2021

I'm enjoying the wet weather, the leaves on my street turning bright shades of yellow and red, and pulling on my hand knit socks. My day job is getting extra busy, and the Mister celebrates a milestone birthday this week, so while i've made progress on Lucky Pieces, there's no photo to share in today's email.

Instead, thanks to Jenny, I have her current WIP to show you, and a great range of pattern ideas.

Jenny is knitting Ruf from 52 Weeks of Shawls in BC Garn Bio Balance. She had the brilliant idea of combining the Red with Pale Red for a wonderfully tonal shawl. 

I've raved about how much I love Bio Balance before, so here's some more pattern ideas for working with it:

Bio Balance is perfect for our mild climate and can carry you through the seasons in one wonderfully balanced yarn. 

We've managed to secure a second shipment of 52 Weeks of Shawls as well, so if you missed out on the first lot, pre-orders are open for round two.
