Beautiful video

All of the knitted pieces are in Jamieson & Smith yarns. Yay!

The red and white knitted trousers worn by the guy with the book were machine knitted in the very lovely Lu's studio, and the red bubble top worn by the girl at the top was hand-knitted in Shetland by Angela Irvine.

Peerie Lynsey - a new old pattern

We've just released our Peerie Lynsey online. This Fair Isle kit was originally made for Oliver's grandaughter, Lynsey, who is shown wearing the finished ganzie when she was just a peerie thing.

Here's Lynsey a couple of months ago in the yarn store...

So, as you can see, the pattern has been around for a while but it's never been online - shock horror! So here it is, for a whole new generation of peerie things to enjoy. The kit comes in 3 sizes (24", 28" and 32") and is a smaller version of the unisex adult Lynsey, a Jamieson & Smith favourite.
