Cute Little Sweater

You just have to  drop by the shop to see our newest sample called 
Little Details Cardigan.
It is knit from the top down and there are no seams to sew!
I knit it using Berroco Vintage yarn - a washable wool blend.
 As you can see, we have lots of colours of this yarn. 

It would also look adorable in 
Berroco Comfort 
Plymouth Encore KW

I love the title of this book
Done by Monday

The book is a collection of 15 afghans designs for knitters of any skill. 
Again you can use
 Plymouth Encore KW
Berroco Vintage DK
 Berroco Comfort KW

In total over 100 colours to create with!

It is time to pick up your needles and start creating!
