We share details of knitwear design competition we’re collaborating on with Visit Guernsey and knitting shop I Knit, look forward to FibreFest (20-21 August) and offer a peek at some of the latest yarns on the market. We launch out blanket-square knitting campaign in support of Refuge, our charity of the year.
Mandy Haggith introduces us to the women who create inspiring dyed yarns from the colours found in nature, and Ann Shayne wages war on the knitter’s worst enemy: the moth.
In our knitting masterclass, Judy Becker offers a step-by-step guide to her Magic Cast-on technique for flawless toe-up socks.
