New Blog! Same old news.

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.

This year’s outings include Edinburgh Yarn Festival and Wonderwool Wales and Fibre East – and I’ll (fingers crossed) be at few more shows 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:

(also several stalled projects. sorry, stalled projects!)
