I’m very excited to be traveling to Dublin next week to visit The Yarn Tasting at This Is Knit.Â This particular event is very close to my heart as it was here last September that I launched my book, Contemporary Irish Knits.Â I can’t quite believe that this happened only a year ago, it feels like a lifetime (in a good way of course!) ago.
I’m going to be back again this year and although I don’t have a new book to launch this time I do have a collaboration with Hedgehog Fibres that I’ll be releasing into the wild!Â I’ve been busy working on a little collection of Hedgehog Fibre patterns that will be launched at the Yarn Tasting.Â Both the skirt and Hat will be available exclusively at the event in kit form (which is especially useful for colourwork) and the jacket will be available as an individual pattern.Â In addition to this I’ll also have the final version of Ravi for sale now that the KAL is over.Â So if you’re at the tasting come on over and visit me!Â All patterns will be available electronically at a later date also.
Here is a little peek at the 3 patterns …. first the skirt in Blue Faced Leicester DK
Next comes the hat, also in Blue Faced Leicester DK (you may notice that this has the colours from the skirt reversed).
The final pattern is a jacket knit in Merino Aran but using the same colourways from the hat and skirt.
I’m feeling quite sad to be finished with the patterns, Hedgehog Fibre yarn is such a pleasure to knit with you just want it to keep going forever…
