A friend brought me a skein a Samite back from Edinburgh Yarn Festival. I've been enjoying seeing some different stitch patterns so I can decide on a pattern. Any ideas or suggestions would be most welcome!


Wow, that yarn jumps right off the screen! Such an interesting blend and I bet it's even more fun to knit with.
And the book sounds fantastic also. I need to start learning more about wool and how it works - I feel like I've barely touched the surface.

Thank you Andi for the lovely shares!

I'm totally fascinated with that book ..... off to see if I can land myself a copy!!!!!!! Thanks!


I've heard really good things about Blacker yarns.


That book looks incredible, and no doubt helps to brings faces and a better understanding of the fiber growing process! I love Blacker Yarns, too. I knit a cowl with it a couple years ago and it is wonderful.


The book sounds fascinating! I would learn a lot by reading the book I might check it out. I love the way the squares you knit look with the yarns, the colors and textures are nice.


Wow, the book seems like a really interesting read.

I keep seeing the Blacker yarn around. It must be a sign!


A couple of years ago we (family) travelled to Ladahk and indeed the Pashmina scarfs were just beautiful and delicious to the touch. I got a couple of them. This book is lovely! It would be interesting t read it.

That Blacker Yarns looks AMAZING! Lately I have been craving some rustic, toothy feeling wool over the superwash wools I've been knitting with. I'm going to have to get my hands on some of this once my stashdown is a little further along!
