For the past few days I have been very excitedly telling the world about my new design that will be in Knit Now Issue 134 that is out this Thursday. I may have mentioned that it is their tenth anniversary issue with twice the usual number of patterns and articles.
So, I thought it was about time I showed you a sneak peek of some of the other wonderful patterns that will be in the issue! I am in very good company. All photos in today’s blog are from Knit Now Magazine and used with permission.
As you know I am a fan of brightly coloured hair. Do you recognise the fuchsia-headed icon in the pic above? Yes, that really is Zandra Rhodes! She is collaborating with West Yorkshire Spinners and has developed six new colourways of their Colourlab yarn in both DK and 4-ply weights. Anne at Yarn O’clock is stocking it; I’ve seen the colours and want them all! Anne will also very soon have a life-size Zandra Rhodes cut-out in her shop, so if you want a selfie with this amazing woman (albeit, only her likeness, not the living, breathing person), get yourself to Mold!
Knit Now Issue 134 will not only include an interview with Zandra Rhodes, but it also includes a scarf pattern using one of her colourways.
And there’s an exclusive Clangers pattern! And a whole Christmas supplement including an official Wallace & Gromit pattern! And lots more too.
Not only is Thursday a big day for me, but it is also National Poetry Day and my wonderful poet-y wife has some new poems coming out into the world (three in the next few weeks, I think!). Keep an eye out on Twitter for @soopoftheday.
Right, I’m off to develop a new workshop. Yes, a real-life, in-person workshop, that (fingers crossed) should be happening in late January. More of that nearer the time.
Take care, stay safe and do what makes you happy. K x
