Sock yarn and Stylecraft visit

Hello, I thought I would do a catch up blog as I haven't written a post for a while.  We seem to have been very busy lately, I am trying to prepare and organise tasks before my children break up on Friday for the summer holidays. Sock Yarn This week we have spent a lot of time taking photographs of products.  Stylecraft Head over Heals sock wool is now available in three new colours, Ben Nevis, Snowdon and Inglebrough.  These are made from 75% Superwash wool and 25% Nylon, 100g 4 ply ball for £6.40.  More colours coming soon..

Retailer visit to Stylecraft - Ali Crafts and I were very pleased to be invited to a Stylecraft Retailer day.  We really enjoyed looking around the mill and finding out about the whole business process. It was also great to meet so many lovely people who have such an interest in crafts and yarns.  We also got the chance to meet two of the Stylecraft blog stars, Helen and Lucia and see examples of their work.

Higgledy Piggledy is finished - I was very pleased to complete my Higgledy Piggledy blanket this week the border took a lot longer than I expected. I was concerned the panels would not fit together well but the loopy border worked really well and brought the whole blanket together perfectly.

So, time to start a new project.  I have decided to make this pattern Kevin blanket but using paler colours.  I am enjoying the pattern so far.

Have a good week,
