Going Batty

Well, this week’s update took a bit longer to get ready than I anticipated, mainly due to a technical hiccup caused by the wrong person putting the new lighting together. Note to self: next time expensive electrical equipment needs installing, go and hide in the wardrobe.

The actual shop preview is already up, but I wanted to highlight some of the batts this week on the blog. I think our batts are beyootiful, but they just aren’t selling quite as fast as the yarn, so I think it’s about time they took a turn in the spotlight. Because if something doesn’t sell out within five seconds of the shop opening I think it’s The End Of The World As We Know It (and I don’t feel fine). So, here are some of my favourites from this week:

What Katy Did

Begin The Beguine

Charlie Brown

Evry Time We Say Goodbye

I Carried A Watermelon (I have been waiting to use this name for ages)

The Long Way Home

  1. hi! Just wanted to say, that I think the bats might not be selling as fast as the yarn only because some of us aren’t sure we are good enough spinners… you know… worthy of such beautiful bats! So please don’t worry… we’re getting better… =)

  2. I don’t spin but I am almost tempted by I Carried A Watermelon, just because that’s such a great name!

  3. I love the look of lots of the batts (I bought one a couple of weeks ago), but some are so colourful in the batt that I’d be scared that my inexpert spinning would turn those bright colours in to sludge as they were mixed in the spinning.

  4. I’d love to see some roving again – not a huge fan of the arty batts, even though they are lovely! (I tend to knit only semi-solids you see.)

  5. As a spinner, I’m more interested in combed tops (as opposed to roving, although tops are often mislabeled as roving!) than batts – I bought a batt recently on etsy so I’m figuring out how to use it, but tops generally suit my preferred outcome better. Also (and don’t hate me for saying this!) your batts are possibly a bit more expensive than I would want to pay. I suppose this is because more preparation goes into them then into tops/roving?
