Free shipping for the Knitter

Just a note to say we are having problems getting the system to recognise the free shipping for international orders for the Smoothie Sock offer in the current issue of The Knitter.  Please be assured that we are aware that this is happening, and we are refunding the shipping costs straight away.

UK orders are working fine.

Apologies for the inconvenience.

Any orders placed between today, Saturday 14 August 2010 and Friday 20th August 2010 will be shipped on Saturday 21st.  I am unlikely to be able to answer emails too, other than sporadically, as we shall be getting rained on in wild and wooly Wales!  (Camping, no less – must be barking)

Normal service to be resumed next Saturday :)

Where has all the yarn gone?

Well….. the sock yarn from the shop is taking a little trip to Stirling this weekend with my friend Anne from Artisan Yarns.  Do drop by her stand if you can – she has some really lovely lace, and lots of other goodies to tempt!  I may even send up some pretty fibre!

There is also loads of Smoothie Sock to be uploaded into the shop in the next day or two, in rather a lot of colours!  Should be there by the weekend :)

Anna’s Lace

update 9 June 2010 8pm BST

There’s lots of new colours of Anna’s Lace in the shop! Here are a few honeys…..

At 1200m per 100g, there’s plenty on one skein for a good sized shawl.  How about Madli’s shawl (Ravelry link) from Knitted Lace of Estonia by Nancy Bush which will take just one skein, or the stunning Cap Shawl (Ravelry link) by Jane Sowerby from Victorian Lace Today, taking 2 skeins, or indeed most of the fantastic patterns from either of these two books!

Happy knitting :D
