Socks

Christmas really is just around the corner but there is still time to knit and crochet those special presents for your loved ones.

You just can't beat a pair of new socks  and they are so quick and easy to knit especially when you use KnitPro DPNs.

 

Supreme sock designer, Jen Arnall Culliford has a great tip to help you avoid second sock syndrome - you know, that moment when you have knitted one sock and need a boost to finish the pair.  She says: "If I am finding a second sock heavy going, then I find that alternating with another pattern is enough to make both socks feel like a new project!"

 Laura Linneman recommends self striping yarn; "I catch myself saying, let me finish just one more stripe, and before I know it my second sock is done!"

 

We'd love to see what's on your needles at this time of year, so why not post us a picture of your work in progress (WIP) on our Ravelry group here

Product Showcase

 

We were delighted to win two awards in the British Knitting Awards last month for Best Needle Range and Best Accessory Range. Thank you to all of you who voted for us.

 

We have spent a great deal of time over the last few years developing our range not only to bring you the most wonderful range of needles but also to make sure that you can get all the accessories to make your knitting and crocheting experience even better and these awards are an achievement we are very proud of.

 

This month we would like to showcase two products that we know you will find useful.

 

We hope  our article on socks has you inspired so don't forget our sock blockers which are fantastically useful to finish off your socks to perfection 

 

If you are a lace knitter then our new range of lace blocking products is a must have for you to help you reveal the true beauty of your knitting

 

In our October newsletter we mentioned the 'Box of Joy' Limited Edition set of Karbonz interchangeables. They will arrive in your LYS this week and are also available from Get Knitted, Minerva Crafts and Dragon Yarns online.
