New arrivals!

It’s been popular in the US for years, but Red Heart Yarn is coming to the UK, and specifically – surprise, surprise, to Knit One.

The orders were placed early in the New Year:

and the stock is just now in, unpacked and out in the shop (and some are displayed in the window). It’s already proving very popular – the bright colours of their Anne Geddes line of baby double-knitting wool have been an instant hit – and other yarns have now arrived, too.

Red Heart have a lot of free patterns available on their website, and their yarns are particularly effective for crochet. They’re economical without looking it or feeling it, which is a difficult trick to pull off… but they’ve managed it!

Sorting out the storeroom!

It’s been a while since Knit One… had a sale, so we went up into the storeroom, heaved boxes around, made a list of all the discontinued goodies and removed the cat from an empty box (we needed it, honest). And we’ve got enough for a really good sale!

We’ll be open for the sale on Friday and Saturday 2 and 3 January, then from Wednesday 7 to Saturday 10th, then the following week, Wednesday 14 to Saturday 17th January – open from 10am to 4pm as usual.

Here’s a quick gallery of some – only some – of the yarn that will be going into the sale, and in only some of the colourways:

There’ll also be some yummy single balls and skeins – individually priced ends of lots – as well as some patterns, books, magazines and samples!
