Welcome to episode 70!
I’m chatting about my new design today, sharing a neat interview with you and drawing a winner for the gorgeous Zen Variations book from last week.
I’m excited to release this new design – cowls have been a big part of my wardrobe this winter. They’re easy to wear and soooooo cosy! There’s nothing quite like snuggling up in a squishy cowl to stay super cosy and ward off winter chills.
Hullabaloo is a long, chunky, reversible cowl that can be twisted twice around your neck to keep you snug as a bug, or worn as one long loop over your favourite jumper and jeans. Knitted in the round with aran-weight yarn, it knits up quickly so it’s finished in a flash.
The over-sized cables flow effortlessly from the rib borders and they’re easy to master and fun to create.
You can grab a discount on my new pattern for until Midnight, Sunday 14 August, with the code HULLABALOO. Enjoy!
I used 3 skeins of Hullabaloo Aran by Circus Tonic Handmade (100% Australian Superwash Merino; 100g = 164yd/150m in colourway “Beach Stone Curlew”) or you could sub approx. 492yd/450m of aran-weight yarn.
Hannah’s yarn is such a plump, soft aran and I loved knitting with it. So much bounce. And, she’s offering a discount all weekend with the code Libby10. You’ll love the colours!
WOOL ON WHEELS
This week I had the pleasure of sitting down with Julie from Wool on Wheels. She’s taking a boot-load of gorgeous yarn around the North Island of New Zealand in October and hosting pop-up mini-yarn shows. What a fabulous idea!
