NEWSFLASH!

We promised you some news on what The harbour project would be up to in a new year…. so I think it´s time….

Some of our projects have made it into patterns on Ravelry and probably not been added here so I will step up my game and do something about that to.

I (Edda) suddenly decided to open up my own yarn shop, decision made on Friday, first yarn order made the next Sunday….. shop opened 2 weeks after that I think… it´s all a blur, LOL.

My shop is called Garnbud Eddu or in English, Edda´s Yarn shop and it´s a brick and mortar shop with no official website yet but it´s getting there.  I have a Garnbud Eddu and garnbud_eddu, so please check it out 🙂 …  I mainly sell yarn from indie dyers, fancy good quality yarn. My first one was my favorite Icelandic indie dyer Vatnses Yarn, second one Goosey fibers which I love and adore, third one in was Knoll yarns and forth is from the sweetest yarnshop in Edinburgh Ginger Twist studios, her own hand dyed yarns. Ginger twist is partly responsible for this shop fairy tale of mine, you don´t need to go big to go big… if you know what I mean.

My fifth brand is in progress and is extremely exciting and than last but not least, I´m selling my own project bags, featuring The Knit Police and other knit and crochet comics I make.  The newest trend is a custom made bag, made just for you with all your special characteristics 😀 .

Finally it came to me!!

I have started a million projects this month and cancelled as many! Finally this morning it came to me. I remembered wanting to make a hat matching my October sweater and I had 2 skeins left from my favourite yarn of all time!!! So stay tuned…. this will be THE coziest hat and I can’t wait to use it 😁😁

AHHH this yarn!

Ahh this wonderful yarn.  It´s so squishy, soft, purple and speckled…. and so out of my comfort zone.  I´m almost done…. just the neck left.  Can´t wait to try it on my wonderful model Vaka.

 

A funny story… me and Edda Lilja decided to design a sweater together me knitting and Edda crocheting… Somehow I managed stray off the design…. just a little…. ohh well.

October project finally!

I’m so excited about this next project. Me and Edda are doing the same design but I’m knitting and Edda is crocheting. This is so different from my regular design process but still really fun. 


We are working with an amazing indie dyer from Vatnses yarn. We are both working with a speckled sport yarn but in different colour ways. I was fairly late on the speckled wagon but boy is it fun to work with.
