If you remember back when we shared the Birdsong Sweater, then you'll be delighted to see that Manja Vogelsang has just released a new design, the 'Hamborger Veermaster Troyer', knitted up in our own Pip Colourwork. Inspired by the Hamburg port close to where Manja grew up and named after the sea shanty sung in Low German, the sweater uses Pip Colourwork in Eccup for the main colour and Yorkstone for the contrast colour. You can download Manja's pattern from Ravelry here.

I don’t know about you, but this Christmas it feels that way more people are more conscious of what they are spending, what gifts they are buying- or making- and where they are choosing to buy them. It’s heart-warming to see and infectious too. The benefits to recipients, local businesses and shoppers themselves are obvious and important and I feel strongly that we can all contribute to making...
August may feel a little early to start thinking about warm sweaters but it is the perfect time, especially as now is the time in the year when everyone starts to cast on their sweaters for Rheinbeck.
