Recently Nicola and I went to H+H Cologne on a serious shopping trip for the shop.  Just before she left home Nicola phoned with a list of the clothes that she was taking as we both have similar tastes and we needed to check that we hadn’t packed the same.  At our age identical is not a good look.  The positive side of both liking the same things is when we saw Erika Knight’s Studio Linen we both said yes.
Studio Linen bowl

Made from 85% recycled linen and 15% premium linen it has a light sheen, perfect stitch definition with a smooth even stitch and will just keeps on getting better with washing and wearing. What really made us say yes though are the colours.

Linen yarns can be wet blocked and it’s best to block your tension square to get a true idea of the tension and see how lovely and soft the yarn becomes.
