Autumn is my favourite season.
I can’t wait for the crisp cool mornings requiring a hat and the chilly evenings…ideal for snuggling under a hand knit / crochet blanket.
Just like Autumn leaves changing colour, the shop is changing on a daily basis with all of our new Autumn & Winter stock!
Pop in store to check out the latest colours & squish the new yarns.
Not able to come in and say hello?
|Knit / Crochet A Long
We still have many keen knitters and crocheters working away on Blankets and with two months left on our Blanket Knit A Long / Crochet Along it is not too late to join in on the fun!
I will continue to share my blanket(s) progress and the lovely projects from our customers over March and April.
If you are not ready to commit to a large project like a blanket our next two ‘A Longs’ should be ideal!
Autumn has arrived and Winter won’t be far behind, now is the time to get a head start on accessories knitting.
Today is the launch of our March KAL / CAL
Heads & Shoulders………..Fingers & Toes
During March we will be working on Hats plus Cowls, Scarves & Shawls.
April will see us keeping our fingers & toes warm with gloves, mitts & socks.
I love starting off the season with a new hat or adding a splash of colour to my winter wardrobe with a scarf and there is simply no going back once you have worn hand knit socks.

Aline finished her first winter garment this week, the lovely Reversible Wrap by Jo Sharp.
She has used the super soft Jo Sharp Silkroad DK in Boheme.
