November/December, 2015

I have been very slack this year and have gone a whole year without posting, a situation that will be remedied from here on!

The Christmas Holidays are fast approaching and for those of you who live nearby there is a gorgeous display of crocheted snowflakes in the windows this year, all made by Lana and well worth checking out. There are also some lovely gifts on display as well as some really cute beginner knitting and crochet kits in lovely bright colours. As always we have gift vouchers available for that “hard to buy for” person. One really unique use was made of a gift voucher this year, the recipient used it to pay for crochet lessons!

Woolybutt will be closed on the 22nd of December at 5pm and we will re-open on Wednesday the 27th of January. This year we did try re-opening earlier but there were very few people about so this year we are opening later. If you need anything in the interim please email me and I will send it to you. Also a reminder to all those with lay-bys, if you intend working on your project over Christmas pick up enough yarn to last you now!

Our Knitting and Crochet classes are still going so if you need any last minute help call the Shop and book in now. Classes will re-commence on the 30th of January and will run on both Wednesday and Saturday mornings as they currently do.

At this time of year cottons are very popular and Patons have published some lovely booklets with modern patterns in them. Cotton is lovely to work with when the days are hot and I love wearing the summer yarns, particularly cotton on the hotter days.

There is a great range of baby and toddler wear in the Shop at the moment so if  you need to purchase something for a new arrival please come in and check out what we have.

Current projects: a 4ply cotton crocheted jacket  and a pouffe knitted in Panda Jumbo, this is a gift to match a throw that was knitted through the winter. As I wont get it finished by Christmas a picture of the item will be given instead with a “Santa Raincheck card”!

I hope you have a happy, safe and woolly Christmas and New Year,

best wishes
