A Guide to British Yarns

If there’s one thing Britain has lots of, it’s rolling green countryside. And where there is grass there are sheep. We have a lot of wool going for us as a result. We have a national Wool campaign, a national Wool week and now, November has been declared Wovember!

So before the month is up, I thought I’d do my bit in showing some love for British wool. Now, Britain has two big well-known yarn brands – Sirdar and Rowan – but there’s a great deal more out there.

UPDATE: This directory is clearly going to get huge so I’ve moved it to it’s own page. Enjoy!

It’s a…Ravelry Roundup

That Ravelry site is pretty neat right? With all those fancy projects and patterns and suchlike?

God knows I like me some good pattern browsing, so I figured I’d get a little ‘best-of’ going on. There are just too many things I like on there not to do this. I’m going to do it in themes because I enjoy themes very much.

Away to the internet-machine!
