I have now decided I am going to stop commenting on the weather... There is clearly an imp who reads these blog posts and has a good giggle whilst he turns the thermostat the other way! Still, I get to still enjoy my wool socks and jumpers for a while longer so it's not all bad!
Have you seen that Sharon's lovely crochet along pattern, Granny's Log Cabin is now out? Kits are still available in store priced at £38. For that price you get the pattern and the 19 balls of wool needed to complete the blanket.
In other exciting news, we are now proud to say we stock 75 of the Stylecraft Special DK colours, which is all but 2 of the solid colours they do (Jaffa and Fiesta being the two missing colours, otherwise known as fluorescent orange and pink, and if its neon colours you need we stock King Cole Big Value Neons which has more colours, all strikingly bright)
Look at all those beautiful colours! So many combinations to be had!
We're in full crochet mode in the shop, I am crocheting sea creatures for the summer window, and Sharon has just started a ripple cushion based on Attic 24's Neat ripple blanket. Lucy from Attic 24 uses Special DK in her blanket designs and has many different patterns on her website, it's well worth a look if you like crochet. She also does the most comprehensive photo tutorials so even a beginner could make any of her designs.
Tonight is the night I start on my very own Granny's log cabin too, I am very excited to have a new stunning blanket for the back of the sofa!
My name is Sharon the Sheep, the owner of Avicraft Wool Shop in Bromley Kent..
