Sale time!

It’s time to make room for some of the lovely new summer yarns, so Knit one… is having a sale. To start with there are some loevly Sirdar yarns, in packs or half packs, at up to 50% off, as well as some smaller quantities.

There are also some patterns, some fixed point circular needles, and some Addi interchangeables (wooo, 50% discount there), again to make way for new stock.

And naturally Bramble just has to supervise…

See you all soon!

Rowan linen yarns

Linen and cotton and silk

Rowan 57 is at last in the shop. I have been tempted by one of the designs and seduced into learning how to crochet properly. There, you now know my secret. I cannot follow a grown-up crochet pattern yet. But am I going to let this stop me? NO! And why is this? Because I have been taken over by the luscious colours of the Pure Linen range Rowan offers.

This is the pattern that has tempted me away from my usual knitting activity, as you see I am working on my crochet using scrap yarn ‘cos I don’t want to muck up the delicious linen while I learn.

Now, where is my friend Eileen – mistress of the hooked needle? I am hoping she will correct my tendency to misread instructions. Surely she will, she adores lovely yarn. I will keep you posted on my progress.
