Work in progress

The latest jumper, inspired by the rocks, mosses and lichens where I live


  1. Hi, love the colours on this one.
    I was wondering where you get your yarn? Im not from the UK, but sometimes I visit and last time I went I searched for yarn in shops in Oxfordshire and was disappointed by the selection and prices in the shops I went to. Do you have any suggestions where to check for wool, online or physical, anywherein the UK? thanx alot and keep up the good work :)

    1. Hi!
      I get yarn from lots of people and places, often ends of projects. My favourite place to buy yarn is Colinette yarns, they are based in Wales and have a website. The yarns are beautiful and hand dyed. This jumper has some bits of Shetland wool (online again), some Rowan bits and some eyelash yarn from a wool shop in Shrewsbury. ebay can be good for people selling off mixed bags of yarn. Sadly yarn is expensive :( As you don't need a huge amount of any particular yarn you could ask friends for their oddments? Good luck with it! Michelle x

    2. Thanx for the reply, I think I will stick to buying yarn in Croatia then, because its so much cheaper here...:)
