Pickles

I've been following the Pickles blog (link) for a long time. I've been meaning to buy some of their wool for ages, but I finally got around to doing it! Pickles is based in Norway but ship their gorgeous yarns world wide. And dont worry they have an English shop (link) as well as a Norwegian one! Also on their blog they feature a knitting pattern maybe once a week and one size of every pattern is free which is really nice of them! Otherwise you can purchase the pattern with or without the wool in your size.

I chose their Extra Fine Merino as I'm a fan of simple good quality wool in interesting colours. This certainly delivers! It took me a while to decide what colours to get but I ended up with 2 x Deep Aubergine, 2 x Deep Burgundy and one ball each of Pale Olive Leaf and Cold Beige.




I dont have any exact plans for this wool. But I really like the idea of crocheting a hat in one of the dark colours and then having a large pom-pom attached in the lighter shade, I think the contrast would be pretty!

So yeah, go check out Pickles they are really are lovely!
