Knitwits Yarns

I've been fiddling on the site today as the shop has been pretty quiet and I've left Tracey in charge there. Nearly froze to death though as the back office has no heating and a thin carpet on top of a concrete floor - had to come out and defrost in the end!

Only one new addition, which is the latest Yarn Forward magazine:

I've now separated the knitting magazines into Yarn Forward (monthly) and Debbie Bliss (bi-annually) so that should make it a bit simpler for you.

I had one rep in yesterday with the summer yarns!! One tried to come and see me with summer stuff back in November but I, very politely(!), said "no". I really can't cope with summer yarns before Christmas - it's a bit like Christmas decorations in September and Easter eggs in January - anyone had a creme egg yet? - I've been good and haven't.

He had some nice looking yarns but no patterns yet so it's hard to tell what they'll be like. One very unusual one though which is made of paper. Yes, you did read that right - machine washable (gentle wash) paper - whatever next? I'm sure it'll sell well just from the novelty value - watch this space!

My bike is currently being put in the boot of the car as it's lashing with rain - paper sweater, anyone?

  1. Oooh a new YF! Must check it out...

    Somebody in our knitting group is doing a paper sweater. It feels funny, and no, I don't think it would be great to wear and cycle in the rain.

    BTW, lucky you to get a ride in the car back home, we haven't even got a car! (at least the bus stops right at our front door, if the bike breaks down...)
