We have two new seasonal additions to the KnitKits range.
Pumpkin hat - this adorable hat is knitted in Debbie Bliss Baby Cashmerino and the kit contains sufficient yarn to knit a 6 - 18 month size.
Christmas Cracker - knit a set of brightly coloured crackers that can be filled with your own choice of gift and re-used for years to come.

I am so excited about this, it was tragic when Rowan discontinued their range of knitting beads earlier in the year. However, Queen of bling Debbie and her partner Steve have taken on the distribution of the beads. The collection includes all the old Rowan colours plus loads of new shades and they are fab! The beads come in a large size (6/0) for knitting and crochet with double knit and cotton glace and a small size (8/0) for 4 ply yarns. Debbie arrived at Ally Pally clutching our first batch and we will have more shades in stock very soon. See our current stock here
I'm back! Finally recovered from an exhausting few days at Ally Pally, which was very busy, so busy that I never even got a chance to look at a single thing apart from our stand.
We have lots of news for the blog, first thing is Innocent Smoothies 'Big Knit' campaign to raise money for 'Age Concern' and 'Help the Aged'. Contribute to this by knitting little hats and cosies for their Veg pots and Squeezies, follow this link for further details and patterns. Finished hats and cosies can be posted to - The Big Knit, 1 The Goldhawk Estate, Brackenbury Rd, London, W6 0BA
Every cosy or hat knitted raises 35p towards the campaign and last year the total amounted to £250,000, so let's try and beat that!
