Summer is coming...I promise!

Hello everyone,

Well, with a subject line like that, I had better back it up with the newest summer yarn in my shop!

Sirdar Americana comes in so many light,sherbet-y colours, and with 135 metres in each 50 gram ball, it is a great value, easily allowing you to knit up several patterns in your choice of colours.

From this gorgeous cabled cardigan to the frothy little T-top to a soft and breezy will love knitting with this cotton based yarn, and creating some great new summer tops.

For the Month of May if you mention this e-mail you will receive 10% off the price of this yarn. So don't forget to mention it!!

Hello everyone,

I love carrying so many wonderful yarns, and one of the most gorgeous of these is Malibrigo.

Made in Peru, this Kettle Dyed Superwash Merino comes in an array of stunning colours.

The sock weight lends itself perfectly to shawls with a fabulous drape, warm and ultra soft cowls and adorable baby items.

Come in and have a look ( and a feel!) of this lovely will love knitting with it!

More new colours coming in all the time.

Mention this  Puple Sock Special and received 10% off the price of an Malibrigo yarn from now till the end of April!!

Teddies get new sweaters!!

Hi Everyone
We have been having a great time at the Sock in our Thursday afternoon knit along. We have been knitting a mini Gansey using  Beth Brown Reinsels book and DVD both of which can be purchased at my shop, here is a link to info about them.

We have all finished knitting our mini Gansey and are in the proccess of ordering in yarn and planning our full size sweaters. We learned many things by doing this little Gansey which will come
in handy for lots of other things.

Here is a photo of most of them, A few were at missing and I will try to get a photo of them shortly.
Happy Knitting Lynn

Izzy dolls on their way!!

Hi Everyone,
A big "thank you" to everyone who knit either the Izzy Dolls or face cloths, or who donated toothbrushes and bars of soap. They are all very much appreciated, and will be going to very good use. There were 170 Izzy dolls handed in, and I am sorry I didn’t count the knitted face cloths, but there was a big basket full of them. Such great colours!!
 If you have knit some Izzy dolls, and just didn’t get them handed in on time, I do have someone else wanting some to take to an orphanage in Hatti at the end of June. So if anyone feels like knitting a few more for her, that would be wonderful!
Again, many thanks to will be making a lot of children very happy!
Happy Knitting
