New in the shop

Last month I gave you  a preview of the new Rowan yarns and patterns coming at the end of July and I promised you a preview of the Debbie Bliss A/W 12/13 range this month. Well I can do better than that! The new stock arrived early and I now have available in store:

 Bluefaced Leicester Aran 100% British Superwash Wool, carrying the British Woolmark. I have 10 beautiful shades in stock. The pattern book features 13 classic designs focusing on texture as the fibre gives such clarity to the stitch.

Winter Garden is a chunky blend of luxurious Baby Llama, Merino, Silk and Linen. Stocked in all 8 shades the yarn features natural shades with a subtle tweedy fleck. 10 designs appear in the pattern book including accessories, jumpers and cardigans.

Angel Prints

A new addition to the popular Angel range is Angel Prints, a colour variegated version of the popular Mohair/Silk blend. This is a very versatile yarn knitting on needles between 3.25mm and 5mm.

Debbie Bliss has also added a new edition to the popular Baby Cashmerino books, this latest book features 13 bright knits for babies and children up to 7 all in Baby Cashmerino.

In order to make room for all the new stock, I am offering all Debbie Bliss Rialto Aran and Debbie Bliss Rialto Chunky at 30% off. First come, first served!


Professional Finishing Techniques with Carol Meldrum 25th August 2012

Often with hand knitted garments it can be the finishing off that can let you down
On this workshop we will show you how to give that professional look to your knitted garments 

On the day we will work through tried and tested increasing and decreasing methods, picking up stitches and creating button holes and button bands 

We will also look at the various mattress stitch methods and where and when to use them to get the best results 

On the day you will be asked to bring a selection of pre knitted swatches with you to sew together 

You must be confident with basic knitting techniques
