Yarn Shop Day will be here at the weekend. There’s plenty going on here so do call and see us if you can.
This week I will be getting ready for the workshop I’ll be running in the afternoon by preparing some instructions for people to experiment with putting some love into their knitting using heart motifs and I will also be doing ALOT of baking on Friday to feed those hungry knitters.
In the run up to Yarn Shop Day we have been running a prize draw on facebook. It’s quite simple, you need to ‘like’ our facebook page, then you need to ‘share’ one of the competition posts we’ve been doing. There’ll be one every day this week so shouldn’t be too hard to spot one! Finally if you comment on the post you’ve share with the word ‘KASHA’ then I’ll put you into the prize draw and announce the winner on Saturday.
The prize is a fantastic ball of Sirdar Kasha yarn. Kasha is a beautifully soft slubby, textured yarn. The blend of 78% acrylic, 12% mohair and 10% polyester makes it wonderfully warm and totally snuggly. It comes in a range of opulent colours, including both fashion shades and neutrals. Each massive 300g ball of Kasha comes with a free pattern for a throw on the ball band, it is perfect for generous wraps and scarves too!
We have a choice of 3 colours and this weekend I finished off knitting up a sample of the free throw pattern which comes with it. I seem to have had a weekend of finishing off things. On Friday I almost completed a sewing project which I began some time ago at Sew It’s Friday and I also finished sewing up and adding buttons to a cushion at the weekend to go with my giant cushion made earlier this year for my garden bench.
It’s very satisfying to get things properly finished off isn’t it and it also means that something new can be started. Doesn’t it? Watch this space!!
