Knitwits Yarns knitwitspenzance.co.uk

Really busy day yesterday with the on-line orders so everyone's obviously getting geared up for their Christmas knitting - don't forget we're closed for 4 days with Christmas falling as it does so get your orders in now! The shop will be open on Christmas Eve (until about 3pm or until I've had enough, whichever comes first) and then we're shut until the 29th. Christmas Eve is usually a lovely day as we get hubbies coming in buying glorious things for their wives. Often the wives come in too and choose and then hubby will treat them to some really expensive, luxurious yarn - it's always fun.

Just to tempt you - the sari silk arrived yesterday. The skeins are slightly bigger than before - well, actually they're a heck of a lot bigger - 185 and 190g so nearly twice the size. All gorgeous and stunning colours as usual. If you need 2 skeins of similar colours then give us a ring and we'll do our best for you.

I also uploaded a couple of little bits of gorgeousness - an amazing skein of Chakra - only one, so if you fancy it, grab it now! The little stones are orange and really beautiful:

How lush is that?!!

We've also had a new colour in the sparkly knitting-in yarn - Paillettes (made by Katia so look under that brand). It's white a silver so great for all of you who want to add a silver sparkle to some white knitting - perfect for Christmas!

Remember, I did the Kid Mohair (Adriafil) and Paillettes scarf in lime green and black? Well, you could do it in the white mohair and this and it would be fantastic! 1 ball of Mohair, 2 of Paillettes, 4.5mm needles, 30 stitches - done!

I'm adding some new sock yarn on today so watch this space.

  1. Now that is very pretty indeed, that Mangomoon stuff.

    Just one silly question: is it me, or would it be a shame to knit up that piece of art? (and what would you knit anyway?) I'd display it on a lovely glass plate from Venice, if I were lucky enough to have one!
