Studio 21 available to pre order

Available to order - Studio 21 - this looks like a great edition. I am loving the poncho.

The new Noro Yarn Sekku is flying out the door as we speak. Sekku is the new laceweight yarn from Noro - I am not really a laceweight knitter so cant comment on its handling all I know is people cant get enough of it. 8 stunning shades as ever from Noro.
Kochoran and Kogarashi are due into stock any day now - Kochoran has been re-instated into the range. I dont know why they stopped making it as it has always been a massive seller - back by popular demand me thinks!!
I have also started to stock Patons Colouworks and have just made a quick jacket in it - I will get someone to take a pic at Knitting group tonight and add to the blog for you all to see. The yarn handled really well and the garment is a superb everyday cardi.
Patons Silenzio has also arrived. Have not had chance to make anything with this yet but the colours are very on trend for this season.
Will update more later - need to get the new stuff on the website.

Eventing and Knitting

I cant believe it but it is almost a month since I last blogged. Where does the time go?

I have been busy with all the new stock being delivered and trying to keep the website up to date. So many beautiful designs to knit - however I am being extremely strong. Must finish Cricket Jumper by Debbie Bliss in Amalfi Snow Queen Chunky Jacket in Como
and the Cow Pat Cardi from last winters Designer Knitting before I can start anything new for me.
We have had a few new additions to the knitting group. Yes two new babies have arrived. Darcy Rose - Louise's new baby daughter and Ruby - Kerry's new family edition. Both are absolutely beautiful. Will get some pics for next blog.
Hence, I have been baby knitting - made a nice jacket from Louisa Harding Bizu Bizoo I must say that Louisa has fast become my designer of choice when looking for inspiration.
I am also making lots of new accessories for the Tatton Hall Christmas Fayre. See July Blog.
So back to the title of the blog - Eventing and Knitting. Have spent a lot of time this week writing for dressage judges. Either pure Dressage or part of the local One Day Event. I am now inspired. My poor horse will be put through her paces tomorrow. Burghley Horse Trials soon!!!***... Love it. It is a bit like my mini hols. If the weather is good it is one of the best days of my year. Somerford Park event next week - August is a good month.....
Check out the new website for the new stocks.......www.knitsinthecity.co.uk. Too many yummy yarns and patterns to list here.
Will blog again soon.
