Sometimes the joy of knitting comes from the power of its simplicity: basic stitches and the creativity of colour can combine to make something beautiful, like this Walter cushion from our brand new version of our Learn to Knit at Home
book which adds a splash of colour to Alison Moreton's designs using our new Winterburn Aran
The book still includes all the detail from the first edition which made it so popular: 12 pages of clear, illustrated techniques to help the complete beginner get started with their needles and 14 stylish yet easy to make designs that will give you instant satisfaction with your projects regardless of your skill level, including the best selling Marina Poncho, made in shades 1 and 2 of Dovestone Natural Chunky
Need more than just a book to brush up on your knitting skills? Perhaps you have a friend who's keen to share your crafty passions? We have a few spaces left on our next How to Knit workshop
on Saturday 8th September which is a great way to get some guided tuition to give you all the skills you need to make the patterns in this book.
And speaking of the shop, we are proud to be part of the new #keepyarnonourstreets campaign that's been launched to highlight the value of local yarns stores beyond simply selling wool from our shelves. Here's a lovely list they've compiled:
We couldn't have put it better ourselves. Thank you again for your support- whether you shop locally with us, support us through our web store or if you are one of our lovely retailers. It all counts :-)
