January/February Newsletter

Summer is here with a vengeance and today is going to be very hot so when the worst of the heat arrives I plan to have chores done and be sitting either in front of the air conditioner or fan (depending on the room) and knitting! At Woolybutt the first of the indent orders have arrived so if you want to check it out please call in. There are some wonderful new colours from Patons in both Bluebell and Totem and this yarn is finally getting back to the glory that it once was. I remember knitting a huge number of my children’s garments in Bluebell because it was so versatile, it was light enough to be used for layering on those days when one wasn’t sure what the weather was going to do and it was machine washable with the added bonus that it came up looking new wash after wash and the colours were glorious. The good thing is that these light and bright colours have been matched with the heavier Totem if one wishes to knit a more wintry garment. There are some heavy yarns in the range which could easily be knitted up over weekends and once more the colours are very bright and fashionable.
Thanks to our dedicated suppliers Woolybutt is now restocked with large quantities of baby wool in all makes and plys so if there is a new baby about to arrive we have the yarn available.
Many people actually have asked me what we stock so here is a list:
Peter Pan
King Cole
Filatura di Crosa
Mission Falls
South West Yarns
We don’t stock every yarn in each range so it is a good idea to give the Shop a call and check, quite often if we don’t have the yarn in stock we can get it in for you!
Just a reminder that classes have recommenced so if you wish to join just call the Shop on 9458 3101.
Happy (and cool) knitting until next month,

Current projects: a Grffyndor scarf for my granddaughter, a slipped rib beanie (an experiment) possibly for the Shop in Sirdar’s Freckles.
