Want a free pattern?

Did you know I have a newsletter? The Verily Claire newsletter goes out once a month (occasionally twice a month) and it includes info about new pattern releases, what I’m currently working on and always a subscriber exclusive offer.  The exclusive offer is usually a heavily discounted pattern, a free pattern or an offer from a third party.

This month’s newsletter went out on the 21st and the subscriber offer was to get this Iterum Blanket pattern for free. You still have the chance to get this pattern completely free, just sign up for my newsletter before the end of August.

Too hot to knit?

Here in the UK we are in the middle of a heatwave, it has been HOT, and us Brits really are not used to weather like this! I’ve always been of the opinion that it’s never too hot to knit, but I’m not sure that the big bulky jumper that I’m currently working on is the best choice of project for this weather.

Laceweight projects definitely have to be a better choice, right?

This is my latest new pattern the Cymopoleia Shawl which is available exclusively from Knit Picks, its a large circular shawl knit in Knit Picks Alpaca Cloud, which is a wonderfully soft laceweight yarn. This is an intermediate level project, worked in the round from the centre out with a knitted on border (which you can see below).
