In one respect, we don’t want summer to be over; we’ve had beautiful weather (yes, even up here in Saddleworth), plenty of crochet inspiration for the beach and beyond, and we’ve loved trying out new and vibrant knitting ideas.
But on the other hand, autumn holds just as much excitement. We can’t wait to launch our ‘one ball beanie’, and we’ve been dreaming of cosy arm-knitted blankets, not forgetting being able to get all wrapped up and snug in a hand-crafted cardigan.
Currently on our autumn list is an off-shoulder jumper.
We’ve been daydreaming about different colours and really want to use our ‘Aran’ yarn in either Pirate Grey or Rust! We can’t decide! I suppose we have no choice but to make two.
We’ve also been thinking about (dare I say it) …Christmas. Handmade presents make a fantastic gift and there’s so many options for all age ranges. Starting now, you’ll be set and sorted way ahead of the holiday rush. Booties and socks for newborns, cosy jumpers and pom-pom adorned scarves are just a few ideas.
Before we get carried away with the Christmas season, on Tuesday 4th September, we’ve got a fantastic 4-hour felting workshop in the Woolyknit shop.
You will make four Xmas baubles during the session and coffee and cake are included. There’s limited spaces so don’t miss out on your place (details below)!
What are you planning to make for this year’s cooler season?
