Hi Everyone. Following the success of our Alpaca Balls kits last year we have designed our new Alpaca Hearts to coordinate. Each kit contains 2 skeins of Artesano Alpaca DK, 3 pretty heart buttons and 3 ribbons but I bet you could knit maybe 6-7 hearts in total. Great for a teacher gift or a secret Santa. Available from the shop the kits are £13 and if you give me a call I can send them out right away. I’ve got some more Christmas ideas so keep an eye on the site and Facebook and I’ll be squeezing in one more project before the big day. x

Well it’s officially the Knitting Season and what better way to get started than with this new kit from Manfield Crafts. This is our Fake Fair Isle Tam hat. It’s knitted with one ball of Noro Silk Garden and half a ball of Rowan Pure Wool Aran. As ever we have made it incredibly easy for you and made up some little kits for the excellent price of £13. Available here.
Ah, I hear you say, but I’ve never knitted in the round before or “fair isled” before. Don’t panic, we’re running a workshop just for you. The morning will be knitting in the round so if you can do that already then just come in the afternoon when we will show you two handed fair isle knitting in the round.
We’re all chock a block up until Christmas with workshops so we’ll be doing this one on Saturday 4th January 2014.
£20 for a full day, £10 for half a day plus the kit.
So it’s turned out quite an expensive week for me. Firstly at the age of 42 I purchased my first BRAND NEW sewing machine. Not a “hand me down”, not a car boot purchase but a brand, shiny new machine. Now that I am an official supplier of Silver Viscount Sewing and Knitting Machines I just couldn’t resist.
Secondly, of course, I needed some fabric to immediately make something. So I pottered down to the lovely Poppy Patch in Great Doddington and purchased some beautiful fabric to make myself some knitting cases. I got a bit carried away and made four. One for my long needles , one for my double pointed needles , one for my crochet hooks and one for my interchangeable set .
Thirdly, the new Knit Pro catalogue arrived and what did I NEED to fill one of my new cases ? This beautiful set of coloured Waves crochet hooks. Every size is included, even the ¼ sizes, each handle is a different colour and up to 6mm they are only £1.99. I simply couldn’t resist.
Lastly, Deborah prized the catalogue out of my fingers and went all doe eyed at this beautiful new bag for storing your complete interchangeable set. So that had to be ordered too. As a result we are very happy girls and had a lovely time putting all out little bits into our new bags.
On a final note, as you all know, we run a blocking service. Well Knit Pro are now producing their own blocking accessories so you can now block yourself any time at home.
