Victory yarn kit and discounts!

I’m very pleased to share a special promotion today, in collaboration with Susan Crawford.

Susan Crawford Vintage Knitting

If you’re a fan of modern vintage knitting, then without a doubt you know UK knitwear designer Susan Crawford. As you also may know, Susan has a gorgeous line of yarn produced with John Arbon, called Excelana. Excelana is available in fingering weight / 4 ply as well as DK weight. In fact, for Wovember, you can read more about Susan’s visit to the John Arbon mill where Excelana is spun!

I used fingering weight Excelana when I designed Victory. Excelana is 100% British wool, spun from the fleece of Exmoor Blueface sheep, and it couldn’t be a more delightful yarn to work with. Warm, springy, soft, with a yummy halo. The colors used in the Victory pattern are Cornflower Blue, Ruby Red, Powdered Egg, Nile Green and Alabaster. It’s just perfect for vintage-inspired knits.

And if that isn’t enough Excelana for you, make sure you take a peek at the newest limited edition color, Dark Mandarin. I couldn’t think of a better color for autumn. Read more about it on Susan’s blog. Consider swapping Ruby Red for Dark Mandarin in your own Victory for a slight palette change.

Golly, 8 Comments!

  • Thanks for doing this. I was waffling around about whether to buy the yarn now or wait until I’m in the UK next year, but the price of the kit and the shipping were so reasonable that I placed the order, which means I can have my tam in time for winter. Chuffed.


  • My goodness! You are so incredibly generous and helpful. Thank you! I really appreciate all the work you have put into all you do! I’ve got my Victory and can’t wait to order that gorgeous yarn!


  • the hat is gorgeous too bad its so far beyond my meagre knitting skills



  • That hat is absolutely delicious and classy. Is the discount code still working? I have just tied and I got an error saying that it was not valid.

    BTW, I’m hosting a give away. The prize is a pattern of your choice from Ravelry. You just have to leave a comment on my last post.


  • Bought it! I couldn’t resist, though I’m probably biting off more than I can chew with the pattern… I’m optimistic though!


  • i receivedmy yarn kit – such lovely colors! cant wait to start 😀
