It appears many of our wonderful customers are heading away over the festive season! It has been very exciting listening to all the travel plans and helping select some travel projects.
If you are planning a short holiday away this season it is the perfect time to stock up on some reading material and to get a head start on planning your new season projects.

|Never Not Knitting Patterns|
Our Never Not Knitting paper patterns have always been popular but when Alana recently had the very talented Knitterella redesign the pattern layouts they become even more sought after.
And with very good cause….they are simply works of art!
This week, fresh from the printers, we have received new stock of Chloe, Cosette, Molly, Playful Stripes, Shawl Collared Cowl, Sheepish and Watermelon.
We have also just added Alana’s new Autumn Vines Beret pattern, isn’t it just stunning!
|Gift – A – Long
In between the groceries and present wrapping this week, there isn’t much time for those last minute gifts! We’ve picked these ones to be quick, simple and they all use less that 150m of yarn!
For the mother whose coffee goes cold too quick
For the father whose coins are scattered all over the house
For the daughter with dollies who need a cardi
For the son who is a prince
For the sister with cold hands
For the brother who likes to keep his head warm
For the little baby who is new and fresh into the world
For the friend who needs a spa day every day
Just in time, we have received a top up shipment of our very popular aluminium and copper shawl pins!
These have just been flying out the door, we were sold out of several styles as they may such spectacular gifts.
We have so many exciting plans for next year, some that we are still finalising. In the mean time we have updated our January class calendar with some of our most popular classes.
Why not start the new year off with a new skill!
