It's been a long wait for this yarn base, as it is not spun all that frequently, but that's another reason that makes this base very special.
Following the success of our June breast cancer fundraiser, we are bringing back our limited edition Thread & Maple 'Go Pink' Notions Clutch Bundles for Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
These special bundles will be available in our shop from 12noon AEST, Saturday 23 October whilst stocks last.
To enter the fundraiser simply make a donation of $5AUD or more through our National Breast Cancer Foundation Fundraising page, between 12noon AEST, Saturday 23 October and 12noon AEST, Saturday 30 October 2021.
Our amazing prize pool for this round includes donations from some generous and talented Aussie Indie Dyers and friends in the fibre arts community.
When Jessica Gore of The Sweater Collective said she was designing a Lamington Shawl, we knew it would be a delectable knit.
Lamingtons are a tasty dessert here in Australia, made from chocolate-coated sponge cake sprinkled with coconut and often sandwiched with delicious jam in the middle and Jessica's gorgeous new shawl design perfectly captures the sweet magic of brioche knitting.
I credit Helen Stewart and The Shawl Society for my love of shawls.
Back in 2016 when I was a relatively inexperienced knitter, it was the first Curious Handmade Shawl Society season which expertly guided me through the process of shawl knitting and demystified the art of lace knitting, perhaps now my most adored knitting technique.
We are thrilled to now share our yarn with you for the sixth and final shawl of The Shawl Society Season Five.
Please enjoy our presentation for The Big Wool Show 2021, where you'll get a little sneak peak of what yarns we will have in-store for you.
We love a good Westknits MKAL, it's one of the highlights of our knitting year.
And would you believe that the 2021 Shawlography MKAL is Stephen's 12th MKAL?
We are excited to once again be a stallholder at The Big Wool Show, a online event for everything yarn & fibre, coming up on 4th-5th September 2021.
It's going to be so much fun!
We are so proud of the knitting community for the overwhelming response and support to our little fundraiser.
As you know we teamed up with Sam and Olga from Thread & Maple and Designer Tracie Miller of the Grocery Girls, to run a fundraiser both in Australia and Canada for breast cancer research and awareness.
The proceeds from both our fundraisers came to well over $10,000.
