Check with your friends, neighbours and co-workers. I am sure that they have stashes also.
This is a recent picture of lots of knitted squares just waiting to be put together.
A special thanks to all of you who have donated yarn, made squares and/or put the blankets together.
Looking forward to seeing you when you bring in some "stash" yarn for Let's Blanket Halton.

On March 6th, I sent you a picture of a plant in my living room with a few pink flowers on it. I sent it then because I figured that was likely all the flowers it was going to have. Surprise - take a look at it now. It is absolutely beautiful. It is covered with a couple of hundred bright pink flowers with more opening up every day. Unfortunately it does not have any perfume to go along with the wonderful blooms. It obviously likes my living room window. It is supposed to go outside again once the weather gets nice but I just might have to keep it in the house.
Have fun knitting and crocheting!

This cute pattern will definitely make you think of "Spring". I am sure that you know of a cute "little one" who you would just love to knit these jammies for. This pattern called Jammies and is designed by Chris from KnittingAtKnoon. Its wide range of sizes from 3 months to 24 months makes it a very useful pattern. It also includes a sweet knitted puppy called PJ Puppy.
Knit it up quickly for cool spring and summer evenings or knit it now and put away for a Christmas present.
Chris is the designer of the Take Me To Your Leader Aliens who recently visited the shop. Also the Snobuddy family of snowmen, the Safari Friends - elephant, giraffe, lion and zebra and the Prehistoric Friends - 4 friendly dinosaurs. She has also designed the Leisure Arts book called A Collection of Characters - 4 knitted toys (pig, duck, mouse and puppy) along with matching blankets.
We have all of her patterns in stock for you to check out when you come in to say hi!
