New wool shop in Prudhoe. Stockists of Sirdar yarns. We have everything you need - wool, patterns, books, knitting needles, sewing needles, thread, buttons, and small haberdashery items. Find out more at www.readysteadyknit.com
As I've said before one of the things I enjoy about our little shop is getting to know the customers and sharing with them the pleasure they get from their finished article. Audrey struggled with the shawl collar on the little jacket but the end result has turned out just fine. Knitted in Sirdar Snowflake chunky, it is off to a little girl in Holland to keep her warm this winter.
Margaret finished her
Hoooked Zpaghetti bag in white - we still have kits in black and Magenta
on sale- She's getting ready for Christmas too.
Deborah made this little cardigan in Sirdar Baby Bamboo instead of the Raffaella from the pattern. It turned out nice and her granddaughter will look a treat in it on her christening day.
It is always interesting to see how people change things slightly to suit their own taste. No two garments are ever the same - That's the beauty of handmade!!
And this is my latest project completed - A first size baby cardigan in Sidar Baby Crofter for a new arrival due in our street in a few weeks
Looking around the local area - you can see that the freak weather has had an effect on the local plant life. Palm trees growing on Newcastle Quayside?
No it was the Newcastle Gateshead Bridges festival - celebrating the Olympics on Tyneside
Hope you too are enjoying watching the Olympics while doing your knitting in front of the TV.
