Happy Tuesday, lovelies! In this week’s episode of Wool is my Bread it’s FOs galore as it’s been a wee while (ahem… 2 months) since I last recorded! Aside from two finished objects and a new pattern release, I also have two WIPs and a few new and delightful yarny purchases to share too.
I hope you enjoy the episode, I certainly enjoyed getting back into the swing of recording, though I must admit that I did feel a touch out of practice. Thank you for joining me for a bit of crafty time today and as always, if you have any questions, feel free to reach out to me!

Cheeky Stash Enhancement
After making the journey to the remote and beautiful Ardalanish Weavers whilst on holiday on the Isle of Mull, how could I possibly resist picking up a little something to remind me of my trip! I came away with two 50g DK weight cakes, the natural white is 100% Shetland and the grey is a blend of Shetland and Hebridean. I can’t wait to work these into a special colour work project, most likely mittens.
This shiny, happy skein leapt into my arms during my last visit to the lovely Northern Yarn in Lancaster. It’s Doulton Border Leicester 4 ply in the Uschi colourway and is more eye-wateringly pink in real life than any photograph can hope to capture. I’m really excited to cast on a super wooly (this yarn is non-superwash, worsted spun, 100% British wool) pair of socks, hopefully in a few months time when the weather cools down a bit!
So that’s a wrap for this week, friends! I’ll leave you with a couple of pictures of Ardalanish beach and the meadows I passed through on my walk down to the sea. Such a peaceful, beautiful place. Until next time, happy crafting!
