Just before I settle down into my latest design/knit for 'The Knitter' magazine (a lovely lace and mosaic knit shawl) I thought I'd send you a quick note about my site wide 10% off discount code. Valid until Christmas day, the code is "TILXMAS" .
A couple of weeks ago I had a few days where I knew I would be sat in the car, either as a passenger or just waiting for my other half to finish hospital appointments. I took along some yarn and double pointed needles and cast on these lovely striped socks. I'm offering them as a great Christmas kit, with 2 types of yarn (100% wool AND a wool/nylon blend for the heels and toes) and a new technique to learn too. You or your knitting friend would love this.
And for any newbies to sock knitting - Have you seen the easy sock pattern that I designed a few years back on my web site. Another freebie ! There are a few kits left for anyone interested. You will get the yarn and a printed version of the pattern.
