Been a little silent for awhile, mainly because I've been enjoying sharing through Instagram more plus working at A Good Yarn keeps me pretty busy. Please do come say hi on Instagram.

A Good Yarn is moving at the end of this month and the grand re-opening is going to be on Saturday September 2. You're all invited. I've done all the artwork for the logos and the invites and love how they've turned out.

A Good Yarn Grand Re-Opening
I've just released a new pattern for sale on Ravelry. Lapwing - Buy Now

It’s a very versatile shawl pattern, it can be made with any weight yarn and you just keep knitting until it’s the size you want. It's quite a simple design - perfect for TV knitting. There’s details in the pattern for optional beading too. Once you get passed the initial point then it's essentially just a 2 row pattern except for adding in the picots. The picots make blocking on wires super easy as all you need to do is run the wires through them all and you're done.

The multi-coloured sample is made from Louisa Harding Amitola in Elvira 124 and takes 2 balls. It takes about 370m to make it this size but it's very adaptable and you just do more or less repeats.

The pink sample is made in Debbie Bliss Rialto 4 Ply and again the sample took 2 balls.

We've been running a KAL in the shop for this pattern, so please feel free to share any progress or finished object photos - either in the Facebook group or on Ravelry.

Here's a link for the A Good Yarn facebook group. Even if you're not a shop customer, everyone is welcome to join the group - it's like an online knit and natter. Hope to see you there.
