SPRING CHICKENS!

As the days get longer and the Easter weekend approaches, many of us have just that little bit more time to cast on a project and spend some quality time with our yarn and needles. If you're in the mood for something seasonal you could have a go at Ella Austin's Fancy Hen, knitted in our Dovestone dk, although in our opinion any time of year is a good time to knit a chicken... 
Many of us are becoming more conscious of waste and the volume of plastic in our lives and if, like us, you might be considering an alternative to gifting a chocolate egg (a quarter of which is on average packaging!) then you could knit up one of our quick and easy Cluck! eggs, using our FREE pattern- click here to download. Happy Easter :-)
Finally, if the long Easter weekend is all about putting your feet up and just relaxing with a good read, we can heartily recommend the latest edition of Pom Pom Quarterly. We LOVE this Durumi sweater by Isabell Kraemer- our Katherine cast it on straight using Cygnet Wool Rich 4 ply and it's looking lovely.
