Welcome to the new season! For Spring/Summer 2019 we've turned our attention to the small people of the world, and have a gorgeous collection of patterns from Yorkshire designer Ann Kingstone all knitted our Pip Colourwork yarn, showing off our three new shades of Eccup, Aire and Parkin. We thought we'd show you the collection in a little more detail, especially if you can't make it to this week's new season launch.
Above is the the beautiful Falling Flowers scarf, knitted in Pip shades Lotherton and Rose Window. Ann says: "Delicate blooms scatter over this snuggly scarf. Romantically feminine for an adult, soft and girly for a child. The scarf is double knitted, so each side is a perfect negative of the other." If you're new to the double knitting technique, Ann has included links to tutorials in the pattern too.
Port & Starboard was originally featured in Ann's glorious Stranded Knits collection, but looks wonderful knitted up our Pip shades of Eccup, Parkin, Aire and Yorkstone. Ann says "The vest is knitted from the bottom up in rounds. The front neck opening is steeked. The pattern includes clearly illustrated tutorials for twisted German cast-on, slip-stitch crochet reinforcement, and picking up stitches next to a steek." (We can't wait for Ann's special steeking workshop this week at the shop!)

If we had to pick a favourite from the collection, it would probably be the Hoggett Cardigan, knitted in Pip shade Eccup for the body with the super cute sheep picked out in Pip Crucible. Ann loves it too: "They provide us with the best fibre known to humankind, so of course knitters love sheep! Share that love with a special child in your life by gifting them this adorable cardigan. Yes, it’s knitted from the top down in the round. Yes, it is seamless. This is a very pleasurable knit!"
The final three deisgns from the collection is Ann's classic Little Tykes vest, reworked in Pip shades Aire and White Rose, Sweet William- a must for all bunny lovers and a great knit for Easter in Pip Lotherton and Yorkstone, and the stunning Sky at Night stranded Scarf in Pip Crucible and Endeavour.  
It will be lovely to host Ann at the store for the workshop and launch and we do hope you can join us. If not you can click here for further details on the collection and yarn usage.
