Tell + Tell

We are still ticking along with our projects, Sophie with her Kaye's cardi, Lydia with her Garland. But Greco is complete! And it seems that Lydia and Meghan finished at almost exactly the same time. So neither of us lost! Hurrah! Proof that in the knitting world there are no losers.

We are still gearing up for GLYC on 5th September, and we will also have a stand at Yarndale, so come and say hello!
And of course with the release of our Autumn 2015 issue we have started a shiny new KAL, join us!


We were lucky enough to get a sneak preview of the new book celebrating Loop's 10th Anniversary, Loop's 10. It is such a beautiful book, with designs from a whole range of wonderful people who have all been involved with Loop in one way or another over the past 10 years. And as if that wasn't exciting enough each pattern is knit in a custom colour dyed especially for Loop's 10th birthday. What a treat. You can check out the designs here, and read more about the book here.

Here are a few of our faves, or at least the ones we would cast on first!
