We've got the most gorgeous collection of knits on show in the shop at the moment: Carol Feller's Trunk Show is on display upstairs!
There's garments and accessories galore, and we've chosen a few favourites to showcase today. First of all, pictured above is the delicious Bakersville
, a hooded cardigan designed for Fyberspates Scrumptious 4-ply
. The merino/silk yarn makes it a real treat to work and to wear and the elegant styling makes it a garment you'll reach for over and over again - and it's even got a practical side with cunning hidden pockets!
Next up is Dacite
, the sort of jacket you snuggle into on chilly days and never want to take off. In the simplest and most effective of stitch patterns and with a smart i-cord edging, it's fast to make in Soft Donegal
. Fastened with just two buttons, it's versatile and understated.
And here's a real Carol Feller classic: Killorglin
, the garment from the cover of Contemporary Irish Knits
. Just look at that lovely cabled back (all the body shaping in Killorglin is achieved by the cables)!
What's more, all three of these gorgeous garments are knitted from the top down, with no seaming! So when you're done with the knitting, they're ready to go!
All of these, and lots more, are available for you to inspect and try on right now. Why not drop by and pay them a visit?
And talking of visiting us, there's still a few places left for our Yarn Dating next week! It's going to be enormous fun, and you can nab a place at this booking link
. We're getting ever so excited!
