Welcome to Green Eyed Monsters, an ecclectic hand-powered yarn boutique full of beautiful things designed to turn your friends green with envy.

In the spotlight

Through The Woods

I've recently published what is probably my favourite design yet - the Through the Woods beret. It's knit in yummy GEM squirrel yarn and it features lovely leafy lace motifs. Even better? It's completely free! Now if that's not an irresistible bargain, I don't know what is.

Hallows and Horcruxes

My first ever sock pattern is now available from the patterns page on this site! I've done it as an interactive Excel spreadsheet, and I've checked it over and over for errors but I'm sure there are still one or two in there - please just let me know if you find any. But don't let that put you off trying it!

Dye for Glory

Weasley's Wizard Wheezes handdyed yarn

Weasleys' Wizard Wheezes won Dye for Glory! A million thankyous to everyone who voted for me and my little skeins!

This yarn will only be made available in very limited quantities, and each time I put it up it sells out within a few minutes, so keep an eye on my Ravelry group for updates in case I decided to dye some more.
