What do you think everyone?? More yeses? Thanks for all yesterday’s ‘yeses’ everyone! 😘✔️...You guys seriously wanted the photo shoot of the New #Croft sweater!!!! - so we’ve been slaving over a hot tripod all morning to bring it to you!! (I hope you can see it ok - I’m not the best model!) 🎬This lovely Aran yarn comes in 5 lovely tweedy shades and the pattern book is 👌🏼ace👌🏼. This is knitted in a simple repetitive ‘rice’ stitch but some patterns are even easier. It’s washable at 30 degrees and is 100% British Shetland Wool! It’s very substantial and warm. 🔥 £8.50 for 100g is good value too! Colourway shown is Mossbank. Link in profile! And here are Betty’s captions to go with the pictures from our shoot: 1) “I’m not taking this sign off until you speak to my agent.⭐️ 2) “I know you’re my owner but that’s a bit ‘Harvey Weinstein’ isn’t it?” 😳 3) “Well if you have a considerable amount of treats maybe we can come to some agreement...” 🍖 4) “How many treats do you have exactly?” 💰 5) “A bit of bacon would have been nice?” 🙄 🥓 6) “ OK. Time out. Fetch my Winnebago...” 🚚
We have knitted up the MOST gloriously warm sweater from that there ‘Croft’ Yarn at the front. 🚨Wanna see it????🚨 ....If I get enough YES’s - I will stop whatever I’m doing tomorrow morning first thing and do a very important photo shoot with the sweater - with lights and everything 💡 📷. Betty will erect the tripod and maybe even check the light temperature and will most likely even bring props from home. (For props read ‘treats’). Oh and side note - when I said ‘we’ had knitted it, that’s the Royal we and it was actually Kim who works here. But talking of Royals - she did also mention that it’s the sort of jumper that the queen would wear (good quality - real wool - warm and durable). So if her MAJ wanders in to look for yarn we will unquestionably recommend the Croft. #byroyalappointment #croftoriginal #ohnohangonthatssherry
So which would you prefer? 1) Slippers from my new ONLINE slipper course (link in profile); 2) Crocheted Wooltops Rug from my latest book ‘Easy Stuff To Make with Fluff’; 3) Dog who’s bum wouldn’t get off the rug or get out of the way of the slippers (sorry not for sale even if you choose her!! 🐕 ) #butterwouldntmelt
It’s been a busy Sunday. 🕺🏼 Not only did I do screwing (actual screws -😳- see Insta story) and spirit levelling (real not spiritual) and dog walking 🐕 - I’ve now made Guacamole, Pulled pork, Cauliflower Cheese, Apple Crumble, - alongside slightly dead flowers, & autumnal leaves and apples from the garden. 💓And a new pink kitchen cloth I just stole from the @oglehog office. 💓 And the back door is open and it’s dark and it’s not in the slightest bit cold. (Which I love - but isn’t great for the wool business! 😂) 🌴🌴🌴
To mark the end of #woolweek with @campaignforwool here’s a fabulous piece by @channinghansen that was here in the uk earlier in the year at the @stephenfriedmangallery - it’s made from #handspun #handdyed wool yarn (🕺🏼🕺🏼🕺🏼) that’s stretched over a wooden frame. Big love! ♥️♥️♥️

When in #Marylebone it’s rude not to brush past @vvrouleaux and their glorious purpleness 💜 ribbons and trimmings for days....
I get drawn to wool 🐑 Like a homing pigeon - or a lost sheep 🐑. Sure enough - it happened again today as I sauntered through Marylebone (one of my favourite parts of London) on my way to meet @pollyhs for graduation dress shopping. The @campaignforwool are having a fab little exhibition as part of #woolweek so I popped in for a chat and to see what was on offer. This piece pictured is by @pringlescotland (+ More on my IG stories) - the exhibition is until the 15th October if you happen to be in London 🐑🐑🐑 ♥️♥️♥️
So I asked my outside plants who’d like to die inside this winter rather than outside, and those that put their hands up have been brought in to suffer a slow painful central-heating death rather than a frost bitten sudden death. 🤷🏻♀️ Well... it was their choice!
When Betty wouldn’t get off the #giantcrochet #wooltops rug when we were trying to do a photo shoot. ♥️Wearing her scarf awkwardly. ♥️Oh Betty Bou ♥️ (rug is project in my book #EasyStuffToMakeWithFluff)♥️
I took this fella from my latest book #EasyStuffToMakeWithFluff with me to @threadfestival on Saturday and it got stroked a LOT!!! ♥️ Took about a couple of hours to #knit as it grew so quickly. 🙌🏼🕺🏼
