March/April Newsletter

The last of the winter yarns and patterns have now arrived and they are absolutely gorgeous. There are thick yarns, thinner yarns and the standard 8plys but they have all had the magic colour wand waved over them and the colours are breathtaking. We stock Katia and it is highly featured in this month’s Better Home and Gardens magazine. The colours and variety are amazing and my husband has already picked out an 8ply for a new jumper surprisingly for him, in jewel tones! There are some special offers from a large store chain in this booklet. At Woolybutt we sell yarn at that discount year ’round which is why we don’t have sales as such. If you want to nab a real bargain check out our discontinued lines and the Bargain Room upstairs for some fantastic deals.
I have been very ill so I have not been in the Shop much lately (at one stage I couldn’t even knit)! I’m slowly getting better and at least I’m back to knitting so all is improving.
With the Easter fast approaching now is the time to buy wool for a nice project you can do over the holidays and some of the thick chunky Katia and Patons yarns lend themselves perfectly to short term projects.
I’ve just finished the cutest little crossover cardigan in Baby Loyal Prints. This is a new yarn from Naturally with all the great characteristics of Loyal but made specifically for little ones. It is a delight to knit and very pretty and like all the Loyal range comes in at a very low price point. I love knitting baby garments because they’re so quick to knit. This garment should be in the Shop fairly soon.
Current projects: still knitting the Grffyndor scarf for the granddaughter (it has to be extra long so it can be wrapped around a couple of times and being knitted in the round slows progress considerably). Cute Bunny egg cosies for the Shop for Easter and contemplating that jumper that husband is keen on! So nice to be back knitting…….
