I know, the nights are drawing in, the weather's turning blustery and cold, but still for knitters this must be the best time of year. All those long evenings to fill with knitting, crochet and other crafts; all those great things to make.
The shop's getting busier - people are planning their winter woolies and Christmas presents for knitworthy friends and relatives. And in response, we've got loads of new stock - lots of lovely patterns, plus Patons brilliant and soft Colour Works Aran and Louisa Harding's Grace. For anyone intending to make small project presents, the Three Graces pattern booklet has some lovely ideas. We've got the standard Grace and are awaiting delivery of the gorgeous and classy Beaded Grace. And there's more...new colours of the Artesano superwash double knitting are in stock, two new superchunkies from Debbie Bliss and Artesano are on order and I'm hoping to order a variegated DK weight this week. Wonder how quickly we can get these on the website?
Who needs summer?
(PS Don't forget the Food and Drink Festival at the Piece Hall this weekend. Three days of celebrity chefs and local delicacies.)
