  1. Online Classes and Events

    Posted on

    I am excited to announce that I now have schedule of online events planned for 2021!


    I've been busy putting together some online knitting classes including:

    • How to Read Knitting Charts - learn how knitting charts can be a game changer when it comes to reading a knitting pattern
    • Introduction to Shawl Knitting - Join me to knit 5 mini shawls and explore their shaping and construction.
    • Knitting with Beads - Learn how to add beads to your knitting and design your own bead pattern to work on a simple lace cowl
    • Introduction to Sock Knitting - Join me as we knit a mini sock from the top down using double pointed needles

    I am working on some more class offerings too which I will let you know about soon. Or if there is a particular class you would like to see, please just reply to this e-mail and let me know!

    For more details and to find out the dates and times for the classes please head on over to the Events and Online Classes Page

    And I am also signed up to take part in some Live online events too!

    At each of these events I'll be doing a 'Show and Tell' for Under the Olive Tree yarns and patterns. You can watch Live on the Instagram page for each event, and there will be replays if you are unable to make it Live. If you can join in it would be great to see you and if there is any particular pattern or colourway you would like to see close up please just let me know.

    You can stay up to date on all online classes and future events by visiting the Events and Workshops page on the website.

  2. Shop Update - New Yarns Added!

    Posted on

    New yarns have been added to the website this week. They include a restock of popular colourways on sock and sparkle sock bases including Fiesta BeachLavender Fields and Street Art.

    And there are some new one-of-a-kind skeins added too, including:
    Flowering FuchsiaNorthern Lights, Pearl FishermanEverything's Peachy and Purple Dove.

    If you like your yarn to be totally unique do be sure to take a look at the new 'One of a Kind Skeins' yarn category which lists all of the colourways that will not be repeated. Quite often these skeins are the result of the end of a dye day, where undyed skeins are used to take on all the leftover colours. Some interesting colourways get created and it also means no dyes go to waste, so its a win-win!

    So why not head on over to the website and see if your favourite colourway is in stock! If not, let me know what you were hoping to see and I'll make sure it's on the list for next time (or if it's a repeatable colourway I can dye it to order for you)
