With coming of the end of the month, Socktober and the sale are coming to an end! Saturday 29th will be the last day of the sale, so hurry along for a bargain!
I haven't done too well with my socks for Socktober, I started 2 pairs, one on double points and one magic loop. Both first socks are done, and both second socks are on the needles, but only as far as the cuffs! Sharon has 3 pairs on the go, one on double points, and she's trialling working on both socks together (20 rows on one, 20 rows on the other). So far so good, she enjoying the thought that the pair will be finished pretty much together! In terms of completed socks though, both of us haven't made it this month, but there's always next month! How about you, did you finish your socks? Please post pictures on the Facebook page so we can see!
This week has also seen a Rico delivery, with this loveliness...
8 beautiful new shades of Creative Melange DK, a colour changing yarn that's 53% virgin wool and 47% acrylic. 50g balls and 200m on a ball and will knit up to DK patterns for stunning jumpers or accessories!
Work is still happening to get us ready for the Christmas Fayre (on the 25th November 6-8pm for your diaries!) . Sharon is knitting away on the nativity - only the sheep, Joseph and Mary to go! The little stockings are coming along too, with 9 almost finished! Tinsel hedgehogs and baubles are virtually finished as well.
A quick last admin job, please note that the sock knitting class has had to be postponed, and will take place on the 18th. If you missed out, there are still one or two spaces available, book now via the shop!
My name is Sharon the Sheep, the owner of Avicraft Wool Shop in Bromley Kent..
