Festive fun 

Is it ever too early to start your Christmas present knitting and crochet? Probably not because one thing is for sure, if you're not careful you will still be casting off or darning in ends on Christmas Eve!
So to make your festive knitting even more enjoyable we have chosen some delicious patterns for all your loved ones.
If any gift designs have caught your eye, do let us know.

Time to Unwind

There are lots of yarn shows coming up over the next couple of months, piled high with beautiful yarns which will be oh so hard to resist.

Many now came in hanks, which really help you see the colour and feel the yarn but can take ages to unwind before you can use them. We have recently launched a fantastic ball winder in our signature colours that will help you get down to trying out your new yams in super fast time.

We have also been using it to tidy up our stash - you know, all those part balls and odds and ends that are left at the end of a project. In fact we have had so much fun we are scouring around for more yam to wind! 

Show Survival Guide

At this time of year we are gearing up for a number of shows that are just around the corner; Bristol Wool Fair and Yarndale in September; The Knitting and Stitching show In October and November. So we thought we would come up with a show survival guide just for you.

Here are our top tips.  If you want to read more you can see our full guide on the KnitPro blog

Make a shopping list
Make sure you can access your patterns
Check your needles and hooks

And most of all have fun. There is nothing as exciting as getting home to unpack all your wonderful purchases.
