What shall I make this autumn? Here at Gorgeous Yarns we have a variety of project kits to make all sorts of different things! Each makes a perfect gift in itself, or made up, also a perfect gift, so ideal to get ahead in the next few weeks and months with things for the festive season. (Its the beginning of September, I don’t feel quite ready to say Christmas yet, but you know what I mean!)
We have the always popular 6SocksBox kits, you can make 3 adult socks, 3 pairs from this kit, and it comes complete with 300g sock yarn, a simple knitted sock pattern and ceramic hand made stitch markers. We have 2 collections now, the Coastal Collection with colours inspired by Cornwall, and the Poldark Collection which is new and has colours reminiscent of the wonderful TV programme. One of the colours is called Ross, who wouldn’t like Ross at their feet?! If you’ve never knitted socks, why not give it a try? Your feet will thank you this autumn and its a tiny bit very addictive when you get the hang of it.
Also in the kits at Gorgeous Yarns are larger project kits: the Claire Kit,
and the Dreaming of the Seashore Kit.
Both contain hand dyed luxury yarns, exclusive pattern and a few little extras, and you can make a smaller or larger shawl with them. These are very popular, so if you see a colourway you like, buy it while you can!
We are going to a series of events this autumn, have a look at our NEW Events Page and see if we are anywhere near you. It would be lovely to meet you and say Hello! Some of our kits are only available at events, like the Kelly Cowl Kit.
We will soon be introducing an updated “Learn to Knit” kit, in collaboration with our friend Tina Barrett of The Cornish Gansey Company who is a well known and respected pattern writer and has written many books. Watch this space!
Lastly and MOST EXCITINGLY, We will be launching a Christmas Kit towards the end of the month. Pre-orders will open then, and postage to you will be at the beginning of November. You will have enough time to easily complete the project in the kit before Christmas and add a little bit of festive fun to your home. Have you been watching our FaceBook and Instagram posts, with clues? Make sure you don’t miss out, watch for the launch of the pre-orders and secure your kit. They will be £24, and contain 300g yarns and a pattern, plus extras to make the project!!(If you can’t wait… email me, and I’ll reserve you one, and then ask for payment when the kit launches!)
That’s about all our exciting Autumn news,
Bye for now,
