INTO SPRING KNIT ALONG

A surprise Knit along following at the heels of our colour knitting project.
(for my part, re the color project, Otto the owl is complete minus assembly and stuffing:)

Tanya has used her knitterly ways to convince at least 8 regular London-Wullers to join her in knitting the Ladies February Sweater. hmmm...might a KAL be brewing?

This is an Elizabeth Zimmermann Pattern as modified by Pamela Wynne of Flint Knits to morph from baby sweater to fit "grown-ass women".
Though we are not the first to take up this project en mass (in case you haven't heard of a little old blog called the Yarn Harlot, we will be knitting this project along with 4,000 or so of our closest friends ), we invite you all to join in, sit and knit here at London-Wul or wherever you may be.
The London-Wul gang will be gathering to sit and knit or spin or just chat on Sunday afternoons...see you there.

PS. Yes - I'm in! (With steel grey 100% alpaca me thinks) It's top down for gosh sakes. How could I say no? ....Thank you Pamela, for this pattern!

CHANGE IS AS GOOD AS A REST


I am thoroughly enjoying the change to our winter schedule at the shop. Rest assured, however, that some things never change and while one of us in the studio has been changing the other has been resting. Hmm, well I at least, have been busier than ever working on new products as well as some of my own pieces during the beginning of the week and hosting a great new season of classes and workshops through the end of the week.

Beading yarns, carding batts, custom spinning, washing fleece and even re-inventing the shop space with a new knitting nook have been the order this month. Recharging batteries today (literally; on my camera:) studio pics to follow.......
