Today on the podcast I have a brand new sock pattern to introduce: our 4th design in this year’s Handmade Sock Society. I’m also reviewing a few books that I’ve found really helpful in my journey to stay healthy. Knitting can take a toll on our muscular-skeletal system, so if we want to keep knitting prolifically, it’s important to take care of ourselves. Knitting can also be a source of healing and an act of self-care, so I take a look at some books which cover that side of things as well.
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.
