October Newsletter

It has been a busy month for Woolybutt with the new summer yarns arriving almost on a  weekly basis. Many of the most popular summer yarns are now in the front room of the Shop and  the winter yarns are now located in the back room. We are carrying a huge stock of Patons Vintage blend Cotton (the old Panda Vintage Blend) so if you have the current edition of Better Homes and Gardens and want to make some of the glorious items that are featured we most certainly have the yarn. This yarn not only crochets beautifully but knits sublimely (I have one customer who has knitted eight garments in this yarn and loves it to bits! She does have a wool allergy so Vintage Blend is great for her). The pretty four ply Heirloom cottons have all arrived and are ideal for summer baby garments.

Christmas is coming and will be here very soon and there is a new Christmas Book from Panda now available plus quite a few new one’s from overseas so if you are looking for a Christmas project come in and have a browse.

We have started a second class of knitting/crochet having finally found a teacher! The good news is that there are now vacancies so if you want to brush up your skills or learn a new one for the summer holidays enrol now. Just call the Shop on 9458 3101.

Woolybutt will be closed on Saturday the 12th of October as we are taking a break to talk about what went right and what we could be doing better next year. We will re-open as normal on Monday 14th at 10am.

Current projects: Perfect Day jacket is nearly finished and am thinking about a new pullover in Cotton Blend plus starting to think about garments next year for the Shop!

Happy knitting until next month,
