The wonderful Sinister Catdigan
isn't the only new design release that's selected our lovely Pip Colourwork
as its yarn choice. British crochet designer Jane Crowfoot
was at Yarndale last weekend releasing this beautiful 'Summer Palace' crochet wrap
as part of her collection inspired by Mysore, India, using nine shades of Pip
. Jane writes:'This wrap design was initially inspired by an image of a printed cushion cover I found in a magazine, but having visited the Tipu Sultan's Summer Palace near Mysore in India earlier this year I was inspired to look at the design again and link it into my Mysore Collection. I feel that the design and the wonderful colours within the range of baa ram ewe's lovely new yarn "Pip Colourwork" reflect the elaborate carved and painted wooden pillars and painted friezes found within the building.'
Jane is selling a kit for the wrap on her website here
, which also includes full details of yarn usage and some additional images.
And she's not the only one with a new release this week. Linda Moss' Yorkshire Tam
looks simply stunning seven shades of our Pip
. The hat celebrates Yorkshire and its wool heritage with a design that includes iconic images of Yorkshire; stylised sheep: ruined abbeys, the White Rose of Yorkshire, and cricket symbols on the crown, all against a background of moorland. Linda has used one 25g ball each of the following Pip
shades: Bishopthorpe, Chevin, Bramley Baths, Coal, Viking, White Rose and Rose Window. The pattern is available here
via Ravelry and when purchased you'll get a special discount code to get 10% any purchase of our Pip yarn
from our online store. The only question is...which shades will you choose?!
