Happy Easter!

I know most of you don’t want to hear this but…spring is definitely in the air on our coast. Snow Drops, Crocuses, Daffodils and budding trees are finally here. Hopefully, with warmer days just around the corner for us all – signs of spring are arriving where you live. And…with Easter almost here – we can look forward to pouring through gardening catalogues and dreaming of what we’d like to grow on our balconies or in our yards!

We thought you might enjoy seeing a few of the kits we have available to help you dream of better weather to come.

To all of you who celebrate Easter – we hope yours is a happy one

What a delight to receive Brenda’s photos and to learn that she had taken the inspiration for her scarves from a recent JST newsletter. Brenda is from Manitoba, Canada and she has added layers from what she has learned from Jane on the School of Weaving to create these stunning scarves. Well done, Brenda!
I took inspiration from the cramming and denting newsletter featuring ECO denim jeans yarn, and created my own pattern using the yarn. Below are pictures of the scarves I came up with using a combination of ECO jeans denim yarn and cotton (for the natural colour). I also incorporated a supplementary warp as well using the navy and black ECO yarn colours.
