I have been alluding to this for a while now. I remember when I first floated this idea with the wonderful Jess from Ginger Twist Studios. We have come a long way since I burst into the shop saying I had “a plan” and it involved her yarn and some ideas for stylish accessories.
On Monday 7th July I am releasing the first of a series of patterns designed to showcase the gorgeous yarn created by Jess from Ginger Twist Studios in Edinburgh.
Here are the details and a few sneak peaks for my lovely blog readers. You can also hear me and Jess chat about the collaboration on the Knit British podcast.
Ever wanted to wrap yourself in exquisitely hand dyed yarns from head to toe? This new collection will allow you to do just that. Four carefully designed patterns each featuring a single skein of gorgeous Ginger’s Hand Dyed will take you from high summer through to early autumn.
Head to Toe is an exclusive collection of four beautiful designs by Clare Devine in conjunction with the talented Edinburgh based hand dyer Jess from Ginger Twist Studio. Released over four months from July to October the collection features stylish knitwear to take you through the seasons.
