2018 Yarn Club Update!

In a previous blog post, I talked about my indecision about what to do next year. I had several people ask if I was going to continue with Epic Nature. And whilst I have really enjoyed EN, I had other ideas in my head.  I wrote down a list of about 10 different themes, sat…

Recent Bits And Bobs!

Hey!  It’s been a while since my last blog. No excuse, I’m just a bad blogger!   So what have I been up to lately?  Well,  I’ve been designing! I spent a long time secretly working away on a scarf pattern. I didn’t mention it, because whenever I do say these things publicly; I never get…

Gorilla Yarn!! The review.

As I’m sure some of you yarn snobs have seen, there is a new yarn in town and that is gorilla super chunky yarn!! It’s all over Indie Dyer’s Facebook pages and Instagrams. The company responsible for this yarn is Chester Wool Co, who are one of the UKs most popular suppliers of undyed yarn.  Their…

Epic Nature: Sea Sparkle (Aug 2017)

This one took a long while to get out because of summer holidays, and various embarrassing postage mistakes which I am still hanging my head over!  But I hope it was worth the wait. So lets start revealing August Epic Nature. The theme was Bioluminescent Plankton, also known as Sea Sparkle. These are actually living…

Last Minute Teachers Gifts, Anyone? 

It’s about 3 weeks until the end of term here (I think? I am actually hiding from the calendar, because I’m not sure how I will work throughout the summer holidays). I have left it very late to start a teachers gift, but last night I suddenly decided on a knitted cowl for playground duty….

Lurid Mini’s club with prizes!

The reaction to my new monthly minis club has been fantastic! I can’t believe I haven’t done a minis club before. For those who haven’t seen my Facebook post: Lurid Minis is all about being disgustingly loud and bright! Expect neons, speckles, rainbows, variegated and contrasting solids. We refuse to be mild!! To sign up,…

Yarn Club Reveals; Jan & Feb

So to recap, January yarn club was the quarterly  Epic Nature club, themed around Northern Lights. February was Valentines, so I did a Baz Luhrmann’s Romeo & Juliet theme. Starting with Northern Lights then! The yarn was, as always, superwash merino/nylon sock (unless specifically requested otherwise). It was named Aurora Borealis, obviously! And it was…

Bio kind of thing!

I don’t really have an awful lot to tell you right now, as I currently have two yarn clubs waiting to go out and I plan on posting about those once they have been received.  But last night I was laughing with online friends about someone mixing their dyers up (OK, it wasn’t exactly hilarious…

Let’s Try This Again!

Hello!!! I have tried blogging many times before. First it was a parenting blog, and I managed one post! Then I attempted an LGY blog, but I never actually wrote anything. And recently I attempted a blog about my experience with my mum’s cancer, And I don’t think I was quite ready for that. So…
