  1. Gifts for Knitters

    Posted on

    I know that it can be tricky picking a gift for the yarn lover on your list. Not all yarn is equal, and knowing what is going to be appreciated can be tough.

    So I thought I’d offer up a few suggestions.

    Project Bags are always useful. Most yarn lovers have several projects on the go at once, and having a bag for each makes it easy to pick them up and go. Our project bags are made in linen or duck canvas, and are screen printed by us and sewn by either Joy or Carol.

    My second suggestion is mini skeins. These are brilliant for adding a pop of colour to larger projects and there’s enough in each bundle to make something – from fingerless mitts and socks with the smaller sets to shawls with the bigger bundles.

    If you’d prefer something less woolly we have gorgeous screen printed t-shirts. (Worth knowing – if your present needs to be posted these fit into the large letter category making them easier to post)

    Finally the treats and gifts section of the website is a great place to find the kind of things that you’d love to receive but might not buy from yourself – from the perfect needle gauge to a useful box of bulb pins we’ve got gifts which will be happily received.

    We’re happy to help with suggestions – and if you’d prefer not to choose we can organise a gift voucher for you which can be spent on anything in the shop. Contact us, let us know what you need and we’ll do our best to make it happen.

  2. Duck!

    Posted on

    Duck canvas always feels like a miracle fabric – it’s woven so tightly that it’s water repellent.

    That means it makes wonderfully sturdy bags which don’t need layers of syntheyic interfacing to hold their shape.

    We’ve added a new print to the range – a multicoloured screen print of our grter stitch design.

    There’s a larger version too.

    Like all of our bags it’s fully lined, and there are plenty of pockets.

    You can find all of our duck canvas bags here – and they make brilliant presents.
