Sew it’s spring

Filed under: Shop Front — vicki @ 7:50 pm

As you can see our window is mostly about sewing at the moment. We have had some beautiful new Amy Butler fabrics and patterns in and we are also showing off our Clothkits. We had sadly neglected them over the winter in our knitting frenzy! We continue to stock one of everything as far as we can keep up. Not available on our website but you can always ring or come over to Malvern and browse. It’s beautiful here in the sunshine. Combine a visit to us with a walk over the hills!

The fantastic green cardigan is in Rowan Lenpur Linen, knitted by Pat and has been very popular. It’s on the front of the Lenpur linen book. We have also been selling lots and lots of copies of the Rowan Classic Reminiscence book for the tapered rib cardigan. You might be able to see the back of it in the picture, it’s a beige shade.  It’s knitted in Pima Cotton dk and is lovely. I started to knit it for the shop and then Rowan sent it as a sample so I stopped but I am going to finish it now as I feel like I’m missing out on something given how many people are knitting it!

We have some great Rowan wokshops coming up with a couple of places left on them for some lucky people! Sarah Hazell is doing a fairisle class making some mits. OK. It is Spring but you’ll have them ready for the winter and really, it’s about the knitting…
