Knitwits Yarns knitwitspenzance.co.uk
I'm back into the swing of work now and I regret to say that our travels seem like a far distant memory - not helped by the fact that the autumn/winter yarns are starting to arrive and I hardly feel like we've had any summer yet. I've gone straight from cotton summer top to super chunky waistcoat, which is more than a little alarming (and I haven't even worn the summer top yet!).
We had a huge delivery in from Stylecraft while we were away - 2 new "Nepp" colours in Life DK - blue and green - this is the green:
The Cornish used to be very superstitious of wearing green but it's still "on trend" and selling really well.
Also in the Life range there is a brand new Super Chunky - in 8 really good colours and with excellent pattern support. (Patterns should be on the site by Saturday but, in the meantime, here are a couple of the colours):
The first colour is called "Tarn" and is what I'm using for my waistcoat.
Finally, Stylecraft have brought out a brand new chunky yarn called "Phases" - it's 20% wool, very soft and is marled by also knits in bands. Again, patterns will be here by Saturday but here are a couple of colours to whet your appetite:
Very, very pretty - I can see this one being a real winner.
So - lots of people have been asking "what next" after the grand bike ride. At the moment we're undecided but I did have a visitor in the other day who is catching the ferry to Santander and then cycling home from there - sounds like fun apart from the small matter of the Pyrenees! We may just go back to the original idea of cycling the canal tow paths of France but I think G&T may not find that challenging enough. Any ideas? Drop us a comment with your thoughts!
In the meantime, G has entered a cycling time trial tonight - there's no stopping that boy!
