When Mini-Skeins Grab All the Attention

When Mini-Skeins Grab All the Attention

Shooting these photos in the graffiti’d underbelly of one of Pittsburgh’s many bridges, a middle-aged guy in a dirty shoes and three-day old stubble walks past us. ⁠

He takes one look at my model, overdressed amongst the broken bottles and remnants of late-night meetups, and I brace myself as he opens his mouth and yells…⁠

“THAT’S A REALLY NICE WRAP!”⁠

Well. ⁠That was not what I was expecting. ⁠

But honestly, he’s right. Because this shawl is so eye-catching that it’s what got his unsolicited attention. ⁠

And so I yelled back “Thanks!” as my model and I carried on with the photo shoot, and the sun shone through the old ironwork and the gentle breeze blew all my tension away.⁠

Now it’s your turn…

My assistant Jade knit this stunning wrap with 2021’s Mini-Skein Club gradient and I’m trying to convince her to write up the pattern.

What do you think — should she release it as a pattern?

Mini-Skeins Colour in a New Direction

You may remember that a few months ago, I shared this photoshoot with you, where we laid our Mini-Skein Club bundles from January, February, and March.

And there’s just so much rich, warm, tropical colour!

Well, fast forward only two months, and you won’t believe where the colours are now.  From warm melons to cool Caribbean blues — just like that!

And you may wonder if that colour changing was jarring?  But I promise, it all blends beautifully.

In fact, we’re laying those new colours out today to do another photoshoot, so you can see for yourself over the coming the weeks!
