Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

Wow! its almost Christmas. It must be a sign of my age that I feel the years passing faster and faster.

Congratulations to Susan S who has won our November draw of one SOAK Box. She gets to pick her colour! Lucky 🙂

We will be posting  items up to this Friday, and all parcels after Wednesday are automatically upgraded to Express Post at no extra charge. We will be closed from the 21st December to the 6th January 2014. But will be operating over the December 2013 to January 2014 school holidays. We will post on non public holiday weekdays.

I will be trying to complete 2 pairs of socks in fingering weight on 2.25mm needles and trying to replicate Katniss Everdeen’s cowl in Super Bulky weight on 10 – 15mm needles. “Broomstick handles” I overheard by husband muttering.

Here is the lustworthy cowl I am trying to replicate. LINK

I think I will use the Herringbone stitch for the body of the cowl and will have to investigate how to make the collar stand up without too much weight.
