Brr! The weather has certainly turned cold this week! I have been wearing as many handknits as I can find, matching or not, to combat the cold, and so far I have to say its working. Between the handknits and the trusty shop radiator it's been quite snug! The Christmas fayre was very fun and rather busy! All the Tinsel hedgehogs and robins have gone to their new homes, there are still a couple of penguins in the shop waiting for rehoming for £3.00!
This new to us yarn has come in the last few weeks from the Ella Rae brand. Its called Cozy Soft Chunky and is definitely cozy and soft! It's a blend of 75% acrylic and 25% wool and as its machine washable is perfect for chunky baby knits! Suggested needles are 6 or 6.5mm which gives a stitch gauge of 14 stitches over 4inches. In stock we have 3 multi colourways with the plain colours to match, above is the blue mix with the coordinatimg blue, green and cream. There is also a pink mix as well as a mix of greens and orange which looks very Spring like.
Soon to come are more of these lovely pompoms, in an array of colours. They would be the perfect flourish on top of a super chunky hat knit with Rico Super Super super chunky wool. Very on trend at the moment and in all the shops at the moment (much more expensive than the wool to make your own!)
That's all for now, the wool beckons!
