Stephen and Penelope Haul

I’m just back from a trip to Amsterdam where I managed to fit in a visit to Stephen and Penelope. I usually order my yarn online so it was fun to actually go in person, squish some yarn and chat with the knowledgeable staff about the yarn they sell.

My favourite new discovery there is Undercover Otter. This is a small Amsterdam based yarn company, full of bright colours and names based on sci fi and horror. I love bright yarn and all the colourways are gorgeous. It was hard to narrow it down to just a few skeins!

I already have plans for some of the yarn- I’m designing a couple of double knit cowls that I hope to find time to make before the weather gets colder. Still trying to decide what to do with the middle two skeins though. The pin badge is going to be turned into a needle minder. I’ve seen lots of people talk about how easy it is to make them out of pins so I’m finally going to give it a go myself. Tutorial on here to follow hopefully!
