I have a confession to make. I am the kind of person who finds a fantastic gift idea and buys them for everyone on my present list. This cross stitch iphone cover is one such product that will grace the Christmas stockings of many of my friends and family. It is a small kit that includes three thread colours and a needle that can be used to sew a customised design on the phone cover. Pictured below is an example of a cover made by a member of staff. Wish I had an iphone… then I could self gift! If you want to check them out they are available online via the following link:
This week we have a whole mix of exciting things to show you! There are new patterns, new yarns, new cross stitches and new classes, as well as some sample garments waiting for new homes.
First up, here are a couple of wonderful garments made from some of our new Grignasco yarns and patterns.
This gorgeous and soft cabled cardigan is made from Tikal 14ply, a baby alpaca, merino, polyamide blend. The pattern is “Marea” from ‘Knitting an Italian Day’. Tikal yarn comes in a number of neutral browns and creams and knits up super quickly.
Another fantastic Grignasco pattern is this poncho-style coat from the book ‘Knitting Notes’. The yarn used is Loden 10ply, which has a lovely tweed fleck, and a slight fluff as it contains alpaca.
This coat makes for something a bit different if you’re looking for a change from cardigans and jumpers. And just look at those sweet matching crochet covered buttons!
In other crochet news, we have our Sydney Learn to Crochet Stage 2 class coming up this Saturday (25/08). If you’re wanting to further your crochet skills and progress beyond the humble granny square make sure you reserve yourself a place! The class focuses on making this fantastic floral scarf in Morris Estate 8ply…
Over the three hours you will learn how to make and join these floral motifs and cover techniques such as changing colours. You can book in store, over the phone, or online here.
And now for the stitchers among us, here is something for you! We have some lovely, new Lanarte cross stitch kits which we’re just dying to stitch.
Pop into our store and have a look, or check them out on our website here.
We’ve been clearing out a bit of space for all our new stock and so we’ve decide to part with some of our samples. At the rear of our knitting department we have this display of knitted and crocheted garments and homewares that are for sale. These items include jumpers, cardigans, scarves and children’s clothes*. Make sure you come in and have a look!
*(These samples are made from yarns or patterns that we no longer stock at Morris and Sons.)
