I have lots of lovely news to share on this week’s podcast. We have a winner in the book cover vote, I have finally finished my Hay Pullover, and there’s a new Knitvent pattern to introduce to you. I also have stories from the wonderful embroider workshop I took at Loop London last weekend, and a lovely peace-related knitting project to share.
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.co.uk
We have a winner for the book cover vote! I am so grateful to all of you who got involved. It was a fascinating process, and I loved hearing all your opinions. Thank you! There was a clear favourite, although not by an enormous margin. So without further ado, here’s the official cover for The Shawl Society Season I book!
Here’s the whole text of the poem that inspired the design! I think it’s adorable.
