Now in colour!

June 12 2015 – thisisknit

Aren't these gorgeous? They're the new colourways in S Twist Single Ply, and we asked their clever producer Diarmuid Commins to introduce them. So with news of an anniversary and a chance to win all the colours, it's over to him! I got a call last week from a farmer wanting to know when I would go to pick up this year's wool. I couldn't believe that shearing time had come around already. Following on that was the realisation that S Twist Wool is now a year old! What a year it has been. At the start I was able to offer one yarn type. Over the year, that range has grown to three different yarn weights in different dyed options. It's no exaggeration to say that this would not have been possible without This Is Knit. Because of this, I'm delighted to team up with This Is Knit to celebrate my first year and to launch my latest line of yarns. These are the first of my repeatable colourways: six colours specially blended to complement the underlying gray yarn. So to celebrate, here's a chance to win a full set of six 100g skeins - one of every new colour! - simply tell us in the comments below how you'd use the prize. Several projects? One many-coloured one? Something for yourself? The closing date is midnight on Friday 26th June, so you've got two weeks to plan!

    I would love love those skeins!! I would love to make a blanket.

  • ikkinlala: September 16, 2020

    I’d probably split them into two or three different projects. Definitely some mittens. Not sure what else.

  • Nic: September 16, 2020

    All six skeins? Wow. Definitely a colourful wrap of some sort, with fairisle elements. ;-)

  • Rachel Anderson: September 16, 2020

    I’m an Irish designer, and I have an as-yet unpublished design that would be PERFECT using ALL these colours!

    Please PM me if you’re interested in a collaboration – Tomyris on Ravelry

    Oh, they look lovely! I think I would rearrange the colour order from the photo to be more rainbow-ey, and then alternate them with the grey in between each stripe. Then I would make a beautiful striped blanket/throw, probably with the stripes knit in a chevron pattern.

  • HelenMc: September 16, 2020

    Possibly a very cosy vivid blanket

  • Jill: September 16, 2020

    I would knit a plain shawl for Autumn and let the colours do the talking

  • Bronagh Connolly: September 16, 2020


    So many options, but I’d use the yarn to make a super soft version of a wave stitch poncho…. Lots and lots of Colour repeated over and over…

    Too yummy not to use together!

    I’d love to win this! I had my first spinning lesson from Diarmuid at the HandmAid fair last year! I think I’d have to make a Knitmore girls inspired Rainbow Dots Cowl with an earthy grey as the background. Sorted for the winter!
