Shop Update 04.12.15

Now that we’re into December I feel that it’s acceptable to start mentioning Christmas.

First up are some festive sock yarns – these are all dyed on the 4ply British wool and nylon sock base.

Finally this week we have kits to allow you to make your own Christmas decorations – golden sheep.

Each kit contains 2 felt sheets each screen printed with 6 golden sheep and a skein of embroidery thread and costs £8. So by doing a little sewing and adding some stuffing you can make your own little flock of golden sheep. The sheep prints have been created from 6 different knitting and crochet patterns.

Top to bottom and left to right the patterns are
1. Trienne shawl by Rachel Atkinson
2. Crochet mesh
3. Aptenodytes by Anna Maltz and Kristen Blom. Stitch pattern design by Kirsten Blom
4. Stocking stitch
5. Knitted mesh
6. Feather and fan

All of the money from the sale of these kits will go to the three charities we’re supporting in 2015 – The Alzheimer’s Society, Mind and The Stroke Association. I’ve been talking more about my love of handmade decorations over on Rachel Atkinson’s lovely blog – my life in knitwear. You can find out more about these prints there. Tomorrow I’ll add a how to post with instructions for turning your printed fabric into hanging decorations.

The yarns and kits above will be in the shop from 1900 on Friday 4th November.
