I hope your 2018 knitting and/or crochet is going well!
I'm probably quite late with this, but Pantone announced it's colour of the year for 2018! It's called Ultra violet, and works well in this yarn, called Candy Swirl by Stylecraft in the "sugar plum" colourway.
The pattern Sharon used for this shawl is just a plain "corner to corner" crochet pattern which is very popular on the internet right now, I'm sure a google search should find you plenty if you wanted to try for yourself!
There are two big centenaries this year that we are hoping to celebrate. Firstly in February comes the 100yr anniversary of women gaining the vote. We are in the process of designing a special window display to commemorate this centenary, stay tuned for sneak peaks!
Then later in the year is 100 years since the end of World War One. We are thinking of putting as many poppies in the window as we can to mark the centenary in style. You may have seen we have a free pattern for either knitted or crocheted poppies on the website (if not, look under the "more" tab above). We were wondering if any of our customers would like to knit one or many poppies to donate to this display... There is plenty of time until November and they are a brilliant way of using up oddments, and spare 5 minutes!
That's all for now, Happy Knitting
