Goodbye August, Hello September
We hope you all enjoyed the Bank Holiday weekend and the beautiful weather we had to go with it. As we prepared to say goodbye to August and welcome September we look back at a very busy month here at WITA HQ, we have been planning new ideas, dyeing lots of yarn and we've even managed to get some things off our needles!!!
This beautiful blanket was crocheted using WYS Gems, the colours are so vibrant and the finished blanket was simply stunning. It was made as a gift, if you wanted to make one yourself we have 20% of all of our WYS stock at the moment.
This was Dominque's first go at two at a time socks, and she is converted, no more knitting one at a time, in fact she is just choosing her yarn for her next pair!
We are really looking forward to Yarndale in a few weeks, as we said last time, we are hoping to have a stall there next year, so this is really research, not a shopping trip, honestly!
Not content with knitting from patterns, Marie has decided to go "off piste" and is designing her own shawl 'Drops in the Ocean' using our very own Deep Navy 4 and Coral Reef yarn. This is the image she used for her inspiration!
The colours look amazing and will be available in the shop very soon.
Just a reminder we have launched our first bespoke Christmas Shawl set, based on the 12 Days of Christmas. Don't forget you can now pre order our Christmas Shawl! Order now so that you don't miss out!
This has been created by a local designer, Iris and each stitch represents one of the 12 days. The pattern is only available from us with this special kit.
The Shawl set comprises of 12 hand dyed mini cakes of super wash merino wool. The main colour is a specially dyed Sparkle yarn which can only be purchased as part of the Christmas set. The two complementary colours are chosen by you from six specially dyed solid tonal colours.
As there is limited stock available the item is pre order only and can be purchased online now. All orders need to be placed by 13th November 2017 and will be posted week commencing 27th November 2017.
The 12 Days of Christmas Shawl set will be beautifully presented in it's own gift box, making it an ideal Christmas present.
Thank you for all your encouragement and support.
Lots of Love Lulu x
