March Newsletter

Classes are starting next Saturday in both Knitting and Crochet so enrol now! We have changed the format of the classses slightly but they are still excellent value with beginner materials, notes and morning tea all included. Please phone the Shop on 9458 3101 to enrol and do it soon as places are fast filling and we only take 6 people at a time!

The yarns for winter have started arriving and the first of these is Patons with their gorgeous new 12ply for winter in the Cleckheaton range. The good thing is that the yarns are arriving with the pattern books so the old hassle of having the yarn and having to wait for the patterns has disappeared. The other innovation which is sure to be a winner is that the pattern books have shrunk in size so instead of paying nearly $20 for a book of patterns (most of which you don’t really want) the books now contain only three patterns and as a consequence are much cheaper to buy. New colours in the “old” ranges have also arrived. Zhivago, Inca and Jet all have delicious and up-to date colours and they are in-store now. Next week Rainbow a new 8ply from Patons is also arriving.

One of our team members, Suzanne has been out of action for a few weeks with an operation. She is improving slowly and she should be back in the shop next week. Both Lana and I have missed her lots and it will be great to have her company once again.

This month new winter yarns from all the suppliers will be arriving so if you come to the shop you will have to pardon the mess. We try our best to clear the boxes as soon as they arrive (we want to see what’s inside them) but also the summer yarns have to be moved out to make way for the winter one’s so the workload is quite arduous (the summer yarns are still available they are just re-located to the back room).

Current projects: A Rare Yarns vest for the shop, a scarf in the new Bonjour scarf yarn from Patons and finishing a summer jumper from the stash (huge problems with the neckline)!
