Shop Update and Cover Girl Status!

Today’s update is all about the DK – Mobberley DK, that is! I popped into the big newsagent in town today, on the hunt for Inside Crochet Magazine, issue 69. I have to be honest, I don’t really buy knitting, sewing or crochet magazines at the moment as I have so many back copies of so many different titles. I had a reason to seek this one out though:

Valerie Bracegirdle, aka Agrarian Artisan, has designed a scarf which is featured on the front cover, and it is designed in one of my yarns! I am so excited by this, I can barely squeak! She used a skein of Mobberley DK in the Malted Chocolate colourway, which is now in stock in the shop. Mobberley DK is a custom blend of 70% Exmoor Blueface and 30% British Alpaca, spun in Devon form local fibre sources and dyed here in Cheshire. It is a truly British product and a yarn that I love to work with. I’ve not crocheted anything with the Mobberley yet, so I can’t wait to make an autumn Beaches scarf of my own. My problem is I just can’t decide which colour!
