It’s that time of year when all the knitting and crocheting slows down. The weather improves (sometimes) and we all turn to gardening, walking or just days out. This week as been particularly quiet possibly due to the hot weather, school holidays or that this is the first time it’s been possible to go on a family holiday following the lifting of some restrictions in April. Rain is forecast for tomorrow here in Halifax. To try and move some yarn I have been reducing some of my prices.

People who are still knitting are on with Aran’s, hats and gloves, must be an indication of our poor weather at the moment that winter knitting has begun early this year.

Note to self, next orders get knitting patterns for hats and gloves.

I have just got some new yarns, well new to me; they came out earlier in the year or last year. But due to the shop being closed for various periods of time due to Covid, I have only just got around to ordering them. King Cole Paradise Beaches (12 colours in DK), Summer 4 Ply (multi coloured yarn in 6 colours).

The Sirdar rep called this week and I have ordered some new yarns which come out in August-exciting.

James Brett have announced another price increase from 1/7/21 and I anticipate Sirdar and King Cole will be following.

Remember free postage will be applied to all orders over £25.00. This will be deducted at the checkout automatically.

There are still some bargains in the clearance section of the website, some with free patterns. There is some Sublime Baby Cashmere for £4.20 reduced from £6.20 (limited colours left). Sirdar No. 1 (Crepe) was £5.49 now £4.80. King Cole Fjord £4.39 reduced to £3.65. King Cole Big Value BIG was £7.29 now £6.00 (15mm needles). James Brett Flutterby was £3.80 now £3.50. King Cole Forest Aran was £3.50 now £2.80. King Cole 100% Merino 500g cones £22.00 reduced to £21.00. King Cole Cotton Soft Was £4.30 now £4.00. James Brett Baby 4 ply cones, 500g, was £9.50 now £8.50. All reduced prices are for web sales and not in the shop. Have a look you may find a bargain.

Happy Knitting
