Hello lovelies! As I'm writing these words, I'm looking out the window onto a deep blue sky and a street filled with sunlight. The first buds are slowly appearing on the trees that I can see from here, and there are birds singing. It's such a joy to witness the never-ending cycle of the seasons, to feel the warm spring sunlight on my face, to take a few moments and breathe the fresh air.
Maybe you've noticed, but around here, we love kits! We know you love them too, so over the past few weeks, we've been running some fun votes over on Instagram to see which of our patterns you'd like to see as part of a kit. Today, I thought it would be a fun idea to look at the latest kits we have added to the shop, plus do a little overview of some of the others we are currently offering. But before we start discovering your next cast on, let's take a look at what you get in a Making Stories Kits.
Back in 2020, after we had collected all the feedback from our latest customer survey*, there was one recurring request that kept coming up; for us to sell single patterns. To offer individual patterns was something we wanted also, so we’re over the moon to be launching the Indie Pattern Marketplace right here on our website!
Have you ever just finished a really intricate project that took all your concentration and needed something quick and simple on the needles? Or perhaps you've finished working on a fingering weight, stockinette sweater that you know will get worn forever, but it felt like it took about that long to get it done. You, my friend, require a palate cleanser!
Hello folks! Welcome to today's very special blog post. A little while back, you may remember that we wrote this post on Breed Specific yarn. Here at Making Stories, we love breed-specific yarn, so much so that we've been dying to get a little more 'specific' ourselves. While that original post gave a great overview of what breed-specific yarn is, we thought it would be fun to get into the very fibres of the topic. And that is where I am excited to welcome the fabulous Pam Allen to the blog.
