Today is all about KNITS.
The new batch of gloves is ready to go into store today. Three lengths and lots of colours (but no black quite yet, still waiting for the mailman to bring the parcels from interstate) including 'danger', 'rhubarb', 'smoke' (that's a dark grey for those needing monochromatics), 'primula' and a host of others. No photo yet and anyway photos never do justice to these fluffy lil paw warmers. This year's batch is especially nice, the yarn spinners did a really nice job and the knitting is most fine.
The chilly weather of the last week- oh how wonderful it has been- has put me in a panic about autumn and winter stock for the shop. There is going to be a bit of a wait on some stock (as usual) but I have managed to get these boiled wool cardi-jackets ready. The fabric for these has been knitted in the studio and then felted down. The jackets have raw edges and seams and fabric covered press studs. Each one is different depending on the variegations in the yarn.
