Mitten-knitten

Hi guys,

I know I know – so few posts this entire year, but I’m sure those who know me and buy easyknits.co.uk know that I’ve been working extra hard all year to bring you too yarns and clubs… So hard that one thing I’ve not found time to do is blog!

Going to remedy this by not worrying too much about content, and blogging about more ‘everyday’ things when I feel I don’t have anything AH-MAZING to share 🙂

So, many of you will have seen and indeed samples the DEEPLY WICKED METALLURGY yarns, right? Our delicious semi-solid range of metallic inspired yarns!

I’ve decided to include DWM in one of my designs for our winter booklet ( oh that’s right, we’re putting out a booklet this year too, I call it a bookLET because it is a small collection, perfect for Christmas quick knits, just a few patterns and some other exciting extras for Christmas too )

So here is a sneak at some DWM and some of the simple, basic, quick knits I’m working on for the booklet!

Back later this week with more sneaky peeks!

That is just 1 days deeply wicked dyeing concentrating on reds and purples – today I’m concentrating on blues and greens 🙂

I find a days colour palate helps me know what colours I’ve dyed already 🙂

Hope you’re going to come along to see us at Unravel, Farnham? We’ve got a bigger booth this year, those of you who came to see us last year may remember the tight squeeze it was to get all of our stock on show – and this year we’ve got deeply wicked, little guys and lots of fluff for you all to play with 🙂

The Big Knit, November 13 – with new & exclusive products

Hi Guys,

It’s coming up to the weekend, and it’s time to pack up the knit-wagon and head on off to Exeter for ‘The Big Knit’ show, being held in Exeter’s ‘Corn Exchange’.

This is the first time Easyknits.co.uk will have attended the show, and I’m really excited (and as always a little nervous) about it.

I’m frantically trying to pack what yarn I think I should take along, knowing that I cannot the my ‘full range’ as I usually would to any show a) because the set up time for vendors is only 2hrs & b) because I have just 2 table tops worth of space, plenty, but not big enough for my normal racks. Also this will be the first show this year where I’ll be alone, Mr Easyknits can’t come along as he’s working the weekend for his real job, but I’m sure it will all be GREAT.

Also there will be a couple of brand new and exclusive items coming along with me to the show. We’ve not taken any fibre for spinning to a show in over a year now, but we’ll be bringing some delicious and BRAND NEW fibres for spinners to the show, introducing:

TWINKLE FLUFF


A beautiful new spinning fibre, made up of extra fine merino/silk and stellina, a luxury fibre for spinners that just glistens and sparkles like all the yarns in our twinkle family, only now you can spin it yourself . Photo’s do not show just how glittery it really is!!

and

DEEPLY WICKED – HEAVENLY


The ever stunning Deeply Wicked family has grown once again, adding the delectable and super squishy ‘heavenly’ to its fold. The 100% superwash merino  DK weight ‘roving style’ yarn, is a thick/thin, deliciously soft and cuddly base, with a generous 220m, dyed in the same vibrant and exquisite style as all Deeply Wicked. No two skeins will ever be the same.

If you’re coming along, and there is something you’d LOVE us to bring along from the shop, let me know, as space is limited and I’ll only be bringing a selection of our best sellers and  new products along.

Details of the show are below, I hope to see you there!

Delicious Deeply Wicked Deluge

Well it would be rude not to share these on the new blog wouldn’t it now?

Hope you are all enjoying the look and feel of the new blog, it’s slowly taking shape as I learn new tricks and techniques in wordpress that will help make this blog gorgeous as well as easy to read.

Today is Friday, and what does that mean here at Easykntis.co.uk HQ? Deeply Wicked update of course!

For those of you who are new to the world of Easyknits.co.uk and have not yet met a skein of Deeply Wicked yarn, I can of course inform you that the pictures you see here, just do not do them justice.

Deeply Wicked is dyed in a unique and exclusive way here at HQ which gives each skein it’s namesake, the yarn is completely saturated with dye and then ‘set’ in a way which allows each and every fibre/pore in the yarn to be penetrated with rich, vibrant colours.

Each skein is like a snowflake, it is unique in every way, although Deeply Wicked is dyed in 4 skein batches, not 1 of those 4 will be the same, even though from the same ‘bath’, making each skein a work of art, never to be repeated.

It is of no surprise to someone armed with the above information that the average update ( and their are 2 updates on a Friday, one at midday BST and one at 5pm for our friends overseas ) only last on average 30-40mins on the site before all skeins are snapped up.

Also at a recent event where Deeply Wicked had it’s debut, over 250 skeins sold in just 48hrs – Amazing huh? Deeply Wicked is ‘everything’ that Easykntis.co.uk stands for, it is fun, bright, unique, loud, cheerful, and luscious, each skein is 100%  4ply or DK Superwash Merino, offering a generous 400m (4ply) and 260m (DK).

In just 8 weeks since launching Deeply Wicked we have sold over 600 skeins and we’re dyeing more and more everyday.

In addition to the beautiful yarns we have been working hard to bring you 1 skein knits that will make your Deeply Wicked yarn simply ‘pop’ when you knit it up into any of the designs.Our latest creation ‘Shazaam’ will be launching next week ( Friday 26th August) and will be on sale at a special introductory price on our pattern store. Click here to visit our pattern store and see our other designs.

We’ll be back over the weekend with news of our first ever Knit-Along, why not pop over to Ravelry and join in the fun?
