January Newsletter

Posted by Sue Wheeler

We are back and the shop re-opens on Tuesday at 10am! I have had a relaxing break and apart from trying to stay cool in this disgusting humidity I really haven't done much at all. The online orders have been going out over the break and more orders are arriving each day.

Koigu Magazine Issue 8 is here and once again contains patterns for 30 gorgeous garments by well know designers.

Many of the patterns use the gradient packs which we have in store.  Including this Gradient Cowl by Kathy Merrick.

We have also had delivery of the latest offering in the Zen Yarn Garden Artwalk Series. Number 28 is "Mediterranean Landscape" by Pablo Picasso  painted on Serenity 20 which is merino and cashmere.

Our lovely little enameled Vintage Bird Stitch Marker Tins arrived the day before Christmas. They hold 10 round or pin markers with room in the tin to add more markers.


Hannah Fettig (aka Knitbot) has a brand new book out called Texture. Texture's design collection features both garments and accessory pattern, each showcasing the irresistible qualities of textured knit fabrics. At this stage we only have 2 copies left but I have more on order.

We also have a large order of Cascade Ultra Pima which arrived last Thursday. I do love this yarn for garments and blankets. It is an 8ply/DK weight Pima cotton if you haven't used it before. 

Laine Magazine is a brand new Nordic magazine that came out just before Christmas. I have been getting a huge amount of inquiries about this magazine as I am listed as a stockist. As of the time of writing this newsletter I have still not received my copies. I am not taking pre-orders but will let you know as soon as the magazine arrives, either on Facebook, Instagram or by Newsletter Update. If you do miss out this time I have another order arriving in about 6 weeks as the magazine is going to have a second print run.

Our new Class List for Term 1 is also up on the website. We will be starting a new knitting/crochet night once a month on the first Thursday of each month beginning in February. All the details are on the website.
