Knitwits Yarns knitwitspenzance.co.uk
Just because Christmas is just around the corner doesn't mean we're resting on our laurels here in Penzance! In fact, it's just as busy as ever and - with today's cold weather - it's the perfect time to be knitting!
We have - yet another - new scarf yarn - Poodle from Stylecraft! Can we ever have too many scarf yarns? No!! This one knits with just 3 stitches - yes, you read that right - so the whole scarf knits up in about half an hour - perfect for very speedy last minute presents! This is how it knits up (so you can see the subtle colour changes):
and this is how it looks in the ball:
at just £7.99 that's an ideal and very quick present!
Next we have another new sparkly yarn - and, again, can we ever have too many sparkles? No! Twilight is a black yarn with a different coloured sparkly strand running through - from left to right turquoise, amethyst, gold, silver and red:
lovely patterns for evening wear too:
Finally, from Stylecraft, we have a new, standard chunky, multi-coloured yarn called Harlequin:
Loads of great patterns and lots for accessories too - like this snood, leg warmer and wrist warmer combination, which also has two other hat and scarf combinations as well - a really good value pattern!:
and I love this cape, even if it's not hugely practical on a bike!:
and there are patterns for girls too:
I've knitted up a hat and wrist warmers and it's a lovely yarn to work with - very soft and easy to knit.
Finally, finally, we have new Angel Prints from Debbie Bliss. Angel Prints follows on from the huge success of Angel and is a multi-coloured self-striping version with exactly the same tension so the patterns are totally interchangeable. Still in the same blend of luxurious 76% Mohair and 24% Silk, this is a truly gorgeous yarn!:
I can feel a cowl coming on!!
