Today on the podcast, I share a little bit about some new designs in progress, some that are on the way, and two that were released this week! The new releases are collaborations with some of the most creative people in knitting right now: Anne of Little Skein in The Big Wool and her swoon-worthy kits, and the wonderful ladies of Laine magazine. Speaking of Laine, I also spend a little time daydreaming about a few of the gorgeous new designs in Issue 4.

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 www.ayarnstory.com

Meadow Yarns Unthank Road – Yarn Fictions

Zweig Pullover by Caitlin Hunter

Recollection by Renée Callahan

East London Knits Etsy

The winner of the Recollection giveaway is Rachel with her comment:

“While we were dating, my (now) husband learned to crochet. The two of us worked together to knit a log cabin afghan out of just about all of my acrylic stash. We still have it and put it on our bed every winter. There are special memories to each bit of yarn as well as a wonderful memory of making the afghan.”

Please contact me by email or on Ravelry with your Ravelry name and I’ll get your copy over to you!
