forthcoming . . .

We’ve had a few enquiries about the timing and release of our new book (Sark) and new club (Allover), so I thought I’d give you a quick update: a delay at the printer means that the publication of Sark has unfortunately been held back – we are now very much hoping the book will arrive towards the end of next week – as soon as it is delivered we will let you know!

I have two brand-new designs (a pullover and a cardigan) that are part of Sark, and will be released with, and alongside, the book next week: I love both of these patterns inordinately, and have been itching to show them to you for what seems an age! I’m not terribly good at keeping a lid on my impatience where new designs are concerned . . .

But I’ve had plenty to keep me occupied. Over the past few weeks, Tom and I have been working hard on several different photoshoots (featuring our wonderful neighbour, Iona) and finalising plans for our forthcoming club – Allover – which looks to be set to be one of our biggest (and hopefully, best) clubs yet, with a series of colourwork design releases, an accompanying book, and an ongoing exploration of colour in knitting that will span around four months. Because of the printer delays and current uncertainty about Sark’s release date, we are now anticipating being able to make an announcement about sign-ups for the Allover club in October, with the club itself commencing towards the end of that month.

I am really looking forward to this autumn and winter – the months ahead seem more than usually full of lots of lovely knitting which I can’t wait to share with you. Not long to wait now!

Yours, impatiently . . .
