Hello my fellow Knitters
Well Autumn is now with us and it is time to get out the needles, light a fire and settle down for plenty of creating over the winter months. The summer holidays are a distant memory and we will soon be thinking of christmas and all the trimmings. Hard to believe I know, but it is true! If you start now you could have plenty of presents knit or crocheted in plenty of time. Hats, Cowls, Scarves, Gloves, mug warmers, hot water bottle covers……the list is endless. If its for your husband, best friend, mum or granny there are lots of ideas and fabulous new yarns for the winter season.
Chunky and Super Chunky are this years fashion. With lots of big sloppy jumpers to wrap up in. Easy and quick to knit for even the beginner knitter.
Also at the opposite end of the scale is the lace weight yarns. Very popular this year for shawls, gloves etc. Beautiful fine yarn that can be knit on big needles making it quick and easy to do. It is 70% Mohair, 30% Nylon and is £4.95 per ball. The great thing about it is that to do the shawl (bottom right on the picture) it takes only 3 balls and is knit on 8mm needles. So for pattern, yarn and needles it is only £21.00. Comes in 6 beautiful colours and if you could bear to part with it then it would make a lovely gift for someone special. Small projects also available if you prefer. Happy Days!!
No new scarf wools yet this year though. Only more of the same as last year, which is fine except they are not available for another 6 weeks or so. Sorry about that but unfortunately it is out of my hands. I do however, have lots of other lovely alternatives for you to try out in the meantime.
