I’ve given the blog a little independence! You’ll still get all of the usual Caitin Beag news here, but a bit more craftiness too.
I’m working on so many new things – if you want previews to a few of them, head over to instagram – but there’s a new needle gauge pendant, cute silver-nugget word necklaces, and several new shawlpin designs (plus repeats of some well-loved old ones).
I’m also putting together a wholesale pricelist, so if you’re a shop – or know a shop – who might want to stock some of the things I make please get in touch. I’m planning to start small and expand slowly.
And if you’re a designer, I’m introducing Button Support – like yarn support, but with ceramic buttons instead of yarn. Sample buttons for your samples and wholesale button packs to include in kits – and I can work with you to make the right button for your design. And also Shawlpin Support – if you’d like to feature my shawlpins in your photography I would love that! Email me with your requests!
On the needles:
A cowl. Again. I think this might be turning into a poncho, though. It’s Experimental Train & Pub Knitting, and a pleasing mixture of linen stitch and a yarnovery thing. Let’s see what happens? It might be great!
A sweater, for lovely P, who finds he is often colder than me, and I’m sure that’s because I’m wearing wool and he’s not. It’s a basic bottom-up raglan in West Yorkshire Spinners Jacob DK. I am onto the second sleeve, so getting there.
(also several stalled projects. sorry, stalled projects!)
