Shop Update 11.12.15

This will be our last shop update for 2015, as by next Friday it’s getting pretty close to Christmas.

Our last posting date before Christmas will be Monday 21st December. We’ll have limited posting dates next week as we’re off to visit family – so we’ll be posting parcels on Monday 14th and Friday 18th of December, but not on the days in between. All of which is a fairly complicated way of saying that if you’d like your order sooner than later make sure you get your order to us before 1400 on Monday 14th December.

First up, a huge thank you to everyone who has already bought our sheep kits.

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. We still have some kits left, and they’d make a great gift if you can bear to give them away.

Then a little more festive sock yarn. This is dyed on our British wool and nylon base.

Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer – for everyone who missed out on this last week.

Then there’s DK Sparkly Falkland merino – perfect for a little last minute gift knitting.

We’ve been making more felt project bags – first up in the garter stitch print. There are 4 new colours, plus more yellow as that seems to fly off the shelves.

Black on pale blue

This is an amazing fabric – although it looks pale blue form a distance it’s actually made up of stripes of pale blue and fawn.

Then we have a new print design – daisy stitch. This stitch pattern was derived from one of the patterns in Penguin, a gorgeous new book by Anna Maltz. The original stitch pattern was developed by Kristen Blom. I’ll be blogging about this book next week – it’s a real delight.
