What a beautiful week we've been having weather wise! Can't believe last week I was saying how cold it had become and yet this week I feel like I'm melting! You can never double guess the English weather!
In this heat, it can seem like knitting and crochet are out, but there are things you can do to still take part in our favourite hobby. Knitting small items like baby items or socks always works as nothing heavy is sitting on your lap. Crochet small items like amigurumi also works for the same reason. My favourite though is knitting cotton as it doesn't tend to stick to the hands as you're knitting. Check out this small selection of our cotton summer patterns!
Definitely a few patterns there I wouldn't mind knitting up for myself or my daughter!
In other news, progress on the blanket crochet along which we are hosting starting next Thursday the first June is going well. Sharon is now designing how the blocks will go together and an edging! I have another sneak peak for you!
Yarn packs with the yarn you need and the beginning instalment of the pattern will be available from Thursday in store, through mail order and the website. We are also hosting a group on Thursday evening from 7 for anyone who wants to start the crochet along together. Tuition will be available for free on the night for people who have purchased the yarn pack from us. The pattern will come in 4 parts and be released on the First of July, August and September at the crochet along group that evening. If you choose not to come to the group (but we hope you do!) we will email you the pattern after the group has been finished.
That's all for now, have a lovely weekend, and I hope it does involve knitting or crochet in some shape or form!
