CH 228: Wick Shawl, Sprints and Streaks

Helen —  July 27, 2018 — 4 Comments

On today’s episode I have a new Shawl Society pattern to introduce, and some good news about my violin exam! I have a short review of a book that I’ve found helpful when it comes to making progress on my goals. I’m also exploring some habits and ideas that could help me get more done, with a little mid-year review of what’s working and what I’d like to do more of.

Alongside an eclectic yarn range, which includes Hazel Knits, Icelandic Lopi & CoopKnits, we stock a carefully chosen selection of needles and notions. We’ve also recently launched ‘hand dyed by meadowyarn’, our very own in-house, hand-dyed yarn range. Working in our tiny dye studio, nestled in the Suffolk countryside, we are able to indulge our love of colour, producing complex tonal, kettle-dyed shades across a range of weights and bases. With regular updates our collections evolve and grow, inspired by the landscape and people around us.

AYS is a wool boutique specializing in hand dyed yarns and luxury fibres from around the world. You’ll always find a well curated collection of yarns and colors on the shelves and a friendly knowledgeable staff on hand. Some of our favorite brands include Hedgehog Fibres, SweetGeorgia Yarn, Julie Asselin, Shibui Knits and The Fibre Co. You can find A Yarn Story on Walcot Street in Bath or online at
