Quick and Easy Cowls

Hello everyone!
Just a really quick note to send along these two fabulous cowls, just in case you are racking your brain for something quick to me, these can be done before Christmas!!! 
This first one is done with Rasta a lovely soft and super chunky hand dyed 100% wool from Malabrigo using this quick and easy free pattern from Ravelry
The Second one is knit from a new yarn in the store called Naturalia , this is a natural coloured super chunky yarn from Italy. I have knit this cowl in a very easy pattern that I made up, but there are lots of other patterns you could find on Ravelry, This was done on 15mm needles so was super quick and big chunky cowls are so in fashion right now, who wouldn’t want one!!

Plus, the fabulous "Bling Your String" project bags are back in stock, as well as the adorable, functional and sparkly stitch markers she has made just for me!!( and yes, of course they are PURPLE, lol!) they make great stocking stuffers too!!
Don’t forget about the 12 days of Christmas special, lots of great deals coming up this week and next

Extended Christmas Hours.

I will be open Monday December 22nd  10 til 5 pm  and Tues December 23rd  10 til 5pm
