Some of you requested glorious madder-pink Rhubarb in thinner fingering weight Beyul and I’ve got it in stock for you this week!


Rhubarb

DK weight Rhubarb is also back, shown below in my Siri designed by Linnéa Öhman.

Also new in Beyul DK this week is a lovely new grey/grape hue I’ve named Boysenberry.


Shown above with Rhubarb, Balsam, the large Llama gauge and the Copperplate Pigeon project bag.

Some of you will have seen it in my other new cardigan, a pattern mash-up of my own that I’ve striped with Islington DK Ochre gold.

You can find all yarns in shop for your making pleasure!

Blue and Green Should ALWAYS Be Seen!

LInda Lencovic Kettle Yarn Co.



from left: Islington Absinthe, Ochre, Limoncello, Squirrelly, Copperplate Rabbit bag

New in this week is a new gentle lemon in the Islington fingering. Introducing Limoncello!

A new sunny hue that goes beautifully with the new green – Absinthe. And yes, I just realised how alcoholic my new yarn names make me sound. One of those little coincidences that bring a little more joy into the work day. ;-P



from left: Beyul Shrub, Iceberg, Turquoise Tarn

Last update I introduced bright leafy Jade fingering weight Beyul, baby Yak / silk/ ethical Merino and had restocked Shrub…this week blue-green favourites Turquoise Tarn and dreamy, ducks-egg blue Iceberg have been restocked as well for a gloriously full range of blues through yellow in the blend:

Perfect for Sarah Shepherd’s flow-y summer knit, Remedy Light! (Some of you may have seen this beauty at Pomfest at the weekend.)

This gif shows the top in some of the many Beyul hues available.

This would also work beautifully in any of the Islington fingering. The A-line shape is flattering for all shapes and I love the back lace dropped-hem detail of this top so much.

I need to get one on the needles this summer! Having worn the sample, I can tell you it feels amazing on – drapey with a gorgeous weight – and makes a great layering piece for cooler days as well.

All are now in shop!

Release the HOUND: Baskerville is back!

LInda Lencovic Baskerville, Kettle Yarn Co.


from left: Umbra, Eventide, Dusk, Leaden, Nebulous, Avocado dyed, Dawn
After months of impatiently waiting for deliciously soft, high grade British Gotland to be shorn off its sheepy host I am overjoyed to announce that my exclusiveexclusive small-batch yarn, Baskerville, is now back in stock in all hues!


My Teign wrap in the full spectrum: DuskEventideUmbra and Dawn

Baskerville is a unique blend of yarn, melding the lustrous, velvety crimp of the finest Gotland and the frothy loft of new-breed Exmoor Blueface – a hybrid sheep born of prized Bluefaced Leicester and at risk British breed Exmoor Horn.


Walkham by Hanna Maciejewska in Umbra

With a hint of luminous silk adding a gentle shimmer, this unique blend is a subtly modern take on traditional rustic yarns.


Yealm crochet wrap by Kat Goldin in Eventide

My Gotland-rich blend Baskerville DARK is also back in stock, inverting the percentages of dark Gotland and light Exmoor Blueface to create a slightly crunchier version.

DARK comes in natural Nebulous and darker charcoal Leaden.


Bovey by Courtney Spainhower in Baskerville Dawn and Baskerville DARK Leaden 

I still have a few copies of Baskerville Dawn to Duskin shop with all these lovely designs as well!

🌞Shop Update: Here Comes the Sun!🌞

LInda Lencovic Kettle Yarn Co.

This week has been ridiculously lovely on the south coast of England, and I hope the weather has been good wherever you are as well.

I am down to the last few Lobster project bags but have new tomato-red Macbeth red in thicker Islington DK, British SW Bluefaced Leicester / Silk, to match this week.

There are a few new skeins of neutral café-au-lait Squirrelly and warm cream Light Squirrelly Islington DK as this weight and blend is so perfect for summer cardigans!

I’ve got a full range of stunning, complementary neutrals in the DK yarns now, shown in the header above. They are shown in the header above from top left: NEW Islington DK Light Squirrelly, Icicle, Beyul DK Yurt, NEW Islington DK Squirrelly, Beyul DK Sacred Saffron, Islington DK Copper, NEW Beyul DK Rhubarb and Balsam.

You could make a Yama from Rene’s stunning Zen Variations book from any of these yarns… I’ve still got a few copies of these in shop as well. Timeless and classic, this is perfect open or buttoned worn over dresses and jeans.


clockwise from top: Macbeth, Squirrelly, Light Squirrelly

Also new this week is bright leafy Jade in lighter fingering weight Beyul, baby Yak / silk/ ethical Merino. This punchy green is the perfect bright hue for summer, or for brightening up grey days when you get them. Shown below with restocked lighter, grassy Shrub and Steppe – this trio would make a perfect ombré!


from left: Jade, Shrub, Steppe

See all these goodies at  Pomfest in London on July 14th and 15th in the real. I’ll have limited stock, so if you are after something specific please email me to make sure I bring it for you to see.

New Pattern Alert! Looking at Loftus and Lucy Lightfoot

LInda Lencovic Kettle Yarn Co.

Two new patterns have recently been released in Islington – British Bluefaced Leicester / Silk!

Perfect to protect your hair on rainy summer days Lucy Lightfoot by Jane Lithgow is a stunningly delicate looking, lacy beret in Islington DK. Jane designed it in Peony pink but you could also make this beauty out of Beyul DK, as the two blends are interchangeable in yardage and weight.


Clockwise from left: Beyul DK Jade, Islington DK Blighty, New Beyul DK Rhubarb, Islington DK Pom and Persimmon.

On the thinner side of the yarn spectrum is lacy Loftus by Clare Lakewood. Also designed in pink – Pink Panther – Loftus is fingering weight crescent shawl which begins with twisted stitches alternating with a clever mock cable for a fresh, graphic look.

This shawl is a perfect showcase for both Islington and Beyul’s shine and drape, but it would look fantastically rustic in Baskerville’s  old-school handle as well!


Clockwise from left: Islington Light Squirrelly, Macbeth, Kingfisher, Beyul Electric Amaranth, Islington L’heure Bleue and Beyul Yurt.

Shop Update: Fancy a bit of Rhubarb?

LInda Lencovic Kettle Yarn Co.

June has arrived and I have a new Beyul DK hue this week! Rhubarb is a rosy, madder-like pink/orange that goes so nicely with all the blushes, yellows, greens and neutrals in this summer. Here it is on the drying rack with Islington Squirrelly and Light Squirrelly, which are restocked this update and will be available in DK soon as well. 🙃

In the squishiest baby yak, silk and ethically farmed merino this rounded DK is perfect for cables, lace and the most luxurious simple stitches like stockinette and garter.

After coveting this design for many years I’ve finally cast on a Siri by Linnéa Öhman in the hue and think it is going to be a jawdropper with Beyul’s stitch definition!

I’ve got two new fun brights in Twist Jumbo this week for Veera Välimäki’s Flyway Twist, two colour brioche shawl!

Top right in the photo above, both are fluorescent brights perfect for sunny days – Flamingo pink/orange and Key Lime green:

The original Pylon orange, Icicle and a few skeins of Rubber Ducky yellow are available as well. 😉

 

Another new goody in this week is a new project bag for summer. Another Copperplate Collection bag, screenprinted by hand in East London, Pudding is a mid sized bag for small jumpers, shawls and socks.

Featuring a mouthwatering array of Victorian style desserts in an old-school, line drawn style this beautiful bag will protect your projects in style.

Catch me at Pomfest in London on July 14th and 15th and to see all these goodies in the real.

All is now in shop for knitting fun! 😘

Introducing – the SPARKLER BEANIE!

LInda Lencovic BEYUL

I’m so excited about Canadian designer Fiona Alice‘s cuter than cute new Beyul design, the Sparklers Beanie in Pom Pom Quarterly’s fifth Anniversary Issue, released today! What a cracker this edition is for the celebration!

Fiona designed this fun, bouncy beanie in bright Electric Amaranth pink and Yurt grey in my Baby Yak, Silk and ethically sourced superwash Merino blend. Two skeins is enough to make BOTH versions of the hat!

I’ve created a kit listing to make getting your yarn for this super easy. I also added some other variations – some of which are below. Click on the images to see the colour names and a close up:

SHOP UPDATE … and STILL waiting for Spring!

LInda Lencovic Kettle Yarn Co.

Shop update today and I’ve got yet more warm DK for all of you as the weather hasn’t really warmed up for spring here yet. I’ve seen some pretty crazy Instagram posts of snow on the continent as well! EEEsh!

As a result I am still focusing dyeing on thicker weights and have gorgeously rich Orchid purple in the new, delicious Beyul DK, Yak/ silk/ Merino, this update! Silver linings, right? 😉

Orchid is a deliciously plummy purple with a warm glow – very, very rich.

I am thinking I will cast on another project from waaaay back in my queue in the purple – the Sibella Pullover by Carrie Bostick Hoge. The rounded ply of Beyul DK will make the lace at the top truly pop and the soft yak/ silk/ merino blend will feel like buttery heaven! Perfect yarn / pattern combo and I am glad I waited for the right yarn.

Or maybe an Enso by my pal Renée? I’ve been wanting to make this one for ages and the Beyul would make this simple staple something super-dooper special, letting the yarn shine as the feature!

Here are all the hues of Beyul DK now in stock. From the top left corner – Serpentine, Orchid, Balsam, Yurt, Sacred Saffron, Steppe, Black Quartz.

Make sure to sign up for the Kettle Krew mailing list if you want to see what else is restocked this week. I’ve not had a lot of time to keep the blog updated lately so the mailing list is your best bet for reliable info on what is new and exciting!

Shop update!

Tickets are now on sale and selling FAST for Pom Pom Quarterly’s 5th Anniversary party – Pomfest!  

I’ll be at the two day marketplace will be in London  Friday 15   – Saturday 16 July 2017.
