New Shawl, Sock Kits and New Colourways!

Tidal Shawl

This week, we are super excited to be highlighting a brand-new pattern release by Many-Anne Mace called Tidal Zone.  This beautiful shawl was designed using our Merino Cashmere base in the colourways Whisper and Artiste, and it features an easy-to-wear crescent shape with a beautiful lace border.  The pattern has also been written to include multiple colour choices: you can knit the shawl using two colours (as pictured), in one colour, or with a contrasting stripe that runs across the centre.  All three are stunning! 

For this week's update, we have put together a few colour combinations that we think would work beautifully with this design.  These yarns will be sold individually rather than as kits, meaning you can mix and match colours as you please or select one colour to knit up this stunning shawl.  So here are our colour combos:



From L-R
  • Artiste and Whisper
  • OMG and Jersey
  • Seaborne and Wintertide
  • Pollen and Barley
  • Whisper and Metropolis
  • Milky Way and Graphite

Tidal Zone is available now via Ravelry and of course the yarns will be ready to ship in this weeks update on Friday.

Heel and Toe Sock Kits

The biggest craze in sock knitting at the moment is the addition of contrasting heels and toes.  Let's face it, they make fun, funky socks even more funner and funkier!  With this in mind, we have put together brand-new kits called Heel and Toe Sock Kits.  Each kit contains one full skein of Top Draw Sock yarn, plus one contrasting mini in the same base.  Both yarns have been matched to make the ultimate pair of socks (you'll never want to hide these puppies in shoes!).  Heel and Toe Sock kits are brand-spanking new and are available in store this Friday!  If you miss out, don't panic as they will feature regularly in future updates.  We hope you like them as much as we do!

New Colourways

We will also be introducing three new 'Crazy Colourways' to our shop this Friday!  As you may know Crazy Colourways form micro stripes in a cool pooling pattern when knit up, which make them perfect for socks!  The three new colours are Quest, Hike, and Alpine (see above pic). All three colourways have been dyed on both our Top Draw Sock base and Mini skeins; we hope you like them!


And finally, we also have lots of skeins of Top Draw Sock yarn and Minis available this week in a ton of colours, all of which can be viewed in store Friday 10th Feb at 9am AEST!  Don't forget to head on over to the shop to check out this week's super packed update.

Have a wonderful week!
