We have a new magazine from Kim Hargreaves.

The magazine is on the website along with pictures of all the designs.

A collection of easy summer style and casual comfort. The designs worked in delicate shades are relaxed and effortless to wear. Delight in the simple pleasures of each new day, the nurturing touch of morning sun on your skin dew on the grass and blossom laden trees, find your joy in a simpler life.

 Diana stopped by with a new shawl.

I went in a very different direction for the colours of this shawl. The yarn is tosh merino light from the MadTosh & Shibui collection. We used Lovegrass, Prickly Pear and Fiddleneck.

Some of you might have guessed the designer and pattern name - maybe you’ve knit the sister shawl.

This is Ambah O’Brien’s Lilli Pill Shawl (pattern purchase on Etsy).

Combine classic stripes with lace for a relaxed shawl to enjoy year-round. Asymmetrical triangular shaping is easy to wear and so satisfying to knit. Choose boldly contrasting yarns or knit your Lilli Pilli up with a more subtle variegated yarn and solid colour combination. Or go with classic neutrals for a shawl you reach for regularly over the years to come. Inspired by my loved Lilli Pilli Wrap, I had long been wanting to make myself another when inspiration struck, and I decided to create a shawl version.

I am waiting for Lynn to get home from the cottage for more pictures.

The new Dyed in the Wool has also been added to the website.

The hockey game is on and my knitting is calling.

Lovely knitwear, but I am oooooh'ing over the beautiful yarns at the bottom of your post. The turquoise shades are spectacular.
