My shawl has been going really well. I’ve been adding to the peaks of the edging here and there, and glancing at my progress as I go. But, the other day when I held up the shawl to admire it, I could see a hole at the join between the edging and the border! I […]
Day Seven (Sunday 17th May): Your Time, Your Place. Where and how do you take time out to knit and/or crochet?… I tend to knit here and there at home. Like Beth, I’m a ferry knitter, and I’ve also knitted on trains, both modern and heritage. I’ve also occasionally taken my knitting to the local […]
Piece of Pi !
I found a little time to knit yesterday and was quite proud that I actually left the new Hap aside in favour of the matinée jacket. I quite enjoy knitting this little thing, despite the P15 tog instruction, and hope to see it make rapid progress. Tell you what, though – it’s not something that […]
All the new stock is now on site. We are feeling pretty pleased with the KnitPro pricing and we hope that it will please you too. Bargain of the moment would appear to be the Karbonz Deluxe Interchangeables set, which we have put on at £69.50 with free postage. The Bamboo sets are pretty keenly […]
Added to our range of stock: T pins, in boxed sets of 50, for blocking you knitting Symfonie wood cable needles in a set of three sizes Needle View Sizers (needle and stitch gauge) We have also restocked on a range of accessories including needle protectors, stitch counters and stitch holders I have created […]
We are working our way through the Ashford price review and have now updated most of our prices. There remain a few to do and we hope to have the job completed by the end of this weekend. As soon as we are done with that we should have all the new KnitPro items on […]
I am a very lucky girl; I have not only a new camera but also new lenses. Along with the kit comes a host of new facilities and, well… toys. I have been playing – but not all day as we have been getting to grips with Ashford price increases (updating the site over the […]
We have just submitted a KnitPro order and you can expect new stock coming in just as soon as the delivery arrives with us. We shall be stocking up on the ever-popular Comby starter sets and adding the new Comby 2 set. New-to-us lines include the Bamboo needles and Karbonz interchangeables points and sets, and […]
According to my doily, it is now the 10th September. I confess, the doily is growing well because I so enjoy knitting it. It may be the pleasure of using the perfect tool in the KARBONZ circulars, or the clear and easy charting in the Knitted Lace book, or simply the design itself. Whatever it […]
A little while ago, trundlebug was lucky enough to win a pair of our KnitPro Fixed Circular needles. We asked her if she would be kind enough to tell us what she thought of them. Well, now that she has had chance to use them, she has kindly provided her thoughts: Thanks to managing an […]
We have a competition for you tomorrow. There’s a pair of Karbonz fixed circulars up for grabs. Lovely needles – don’t miss out!
The Nova needle tips have now been priced and made available on the site and that, I think, brings us up to date with all the stock. Nova tips start at £3.40, postage as usual… £1 unless you spend £25. We are having a stunning day today, a real false Spring. Hope you have the […]
You know how very much we love our wooden Symfonie needles from KnitPro? We both use them constantly. If we had one quibble it would be the way that the size marking rubs off so quickly from the interchangeable tips… Ta da! We offer you the Dreamz sets of Interchangeable Needles. The same fine construction […]
I am able to confirm that the KnitPro Karbonz are strong enough to withstand an overnight cat incursion in the workroom. Clearly Gravity has been tested and not found wanting.Happily the Karbonz were not wanting either. They are intact. Now, if only I could say the same about my thread and my doily.
