Gorgeous projects in sherwood yarn

As a dyer and knitter I am always interested to see what becomes of my yarn, here are just a few projects that I thought I would share with you.


DGard has knit a beautiful Southwell Cardi, designed exclusively in Sherwood yarn by Olive Knits. The yarn is British Bluefaced Leicester Sock and the colourway is the sumptuous Sandstone – you look fabulous!


Ruth chose the jewel-like colour combo of Lionheart and Blackberry for her stylish twin-set (twinset bicolore). The alpaca and merino 4 ply blend give a fantastic sheen and drape to her beautifully knitted vest. Ruth I now can’t wait to see your cardigan :)

When Julie Blagojevich of Crochet Works designed Rowena, a sophisticated crochet shawl, a plethora of beautiful projects followed. The yarn is Falkland fine merino laceweight and I am sure that you will agree they all look absolutely fantastic. From left to right: Alivaz used sandstone, Alma made hers in Marian, beautiful detail of Cindi's in Lionheart, Kristinlynn rocks her Rowena also in Lionheart, jench chose skylark, Leasa's looks lovely in Wild orchid and finally sskcraftshop in scrumptious blackberry :)

    Thank you for showing my little top! The cardigans back is almost finished, though during the summer months I tend to be less productive with handicrafts, apart from frogging bindweed in my garden, which knits faster than any other yarn.
