|Stitch Pixie Bags|
We have also opened an amazing shipment of Stitch Pixie bags today!Peta has outdone herself with all new fabric
Is it wrong of me to want to colour coordinate my knitting projects with their own Stitch Pixie bags??

With aching hands I am pleased to say that this week I have finished Miss J’s stunning Babette blanket!
It has been a long haul…I first started this blanket back in November 2009, it has had several
I have added an additional 11th panel to the original pattern as I prefer a rectangle blanket instead
of square and it now fits her bed perfectly.
Babette will be in store for the next few weeks until it cools down a little and it is needed at home. If you are considering joining us with our Blanket KAL why not pop in and be inspired.
This has certainly been a project filled with much love, I hope that she will sleep
which of my other blankets in progress do I pick up next….
|In the Round KAL WINNER|
I’ve enjoyed looking at all of the entries into our In the Round KAL for February.
Our lucky winner this month is Kimley Vacher-Dring
Kimley, if you can send me an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
so we can organise your gift voucher!
Thank you to all who entered!
It’s great to see the excitement that this new Knit-A-Long has generated – ourRavelry group have been chatting about projects planned and all the patterns that have tempted for some time but just needed that little push to actually cast on.
We have few stranded colourwork projects that will be on display at the shop during February.
Derrin made the beautiful Selbu
Modern last winter in the Biggan Design 4ply. (White and Light Khaki).
Lauren’s first stranded project was these gorgeous Endpaper
Mitts by Eunny Jang in the Biggan Design 4ply (Light Olive and Magenta).
I made Laura Chau’s Beauchamp
We’ve all found knitting “bi-lingually” (as Derrin has aptly named it!)
with one colour in your right hand the other in your left makes
working through the project much easier. The floats sit much neater
at the back and the knitting seem to go a little faster as you don’t
have to drop your yarn to change colours. Of course, this doesn’t
mean that you have to knit this way, but it is certainly a little tip to think about!
We’d love to see some of our local knitters at our Saturday social group and
don’t forget about our Technical Support-a-Long Classes on Saturday
afternoons if you’re having some problems! If you’re not local
and haven’t already please come and participate in our Ravelry
group and share what you’ve been working on – we’d love to see it!
