Indulge your knitting addiction with a whole host of blogs right here on www.letsknit.co.uk
We thought we’d whet your appetite with what you’ll find coming soon on the Let’s Knit blog.
As an added bonus to our Knitting for Your Shape feature in September’s issue of Let’s Knit (on sale 26 July 2013) we have interviews from Sally Melville and Amy Herzog. Sally talks about adapting and designing patterns, whilst Amy offers advice on what modifications will accentuate your body shape.
Charity of the Month
Each issue of Let’s Knit features a charity of the month, and we thought we’d take the opportunity on our new blog to cover September’s charity, Sparks, in more detail.
Seeing as how the weather has been pretty fantastic of late, excluding the random thunderstorms and rain, we have a great little feature for you: 10 reasons to love summer knitting
In addition to the giveaways we have in September’s issue of Let’s Knit, we also have three exclusive ticket giveaways coming up this month. Look out for our blogs starting the giveaways for 10 pairs of tickets to:
- 5-7th Sept - The Creative Crafts Show at Sandown Park Exhibition Centre, Esher www.sccshows.co.uk
- 6-8th Sept – Weald of Kent Craft and Design Show at Penhurst Place, Tonbridge www.ichf.co.uk
- 12-14th Sept – Creative Stitches and Hobbycrafts Show at EventCity, Manchester www.ichf.co.uk
If you’re heading to a knitting group this month, why don’t you whip up a scrummy cake to share with your knitty friends? Each month we will be providing a lip-smackingly delicious recipe for you to make. This month we have a very shareable Lemon and Blackberry tray bake, courtesy of Great British Food magazine.
In case the 23 patterns in September’s issue are not enough for you, we also have four patterns being added to our site this month, including a pattern from Melissa Leapman’s book Knitting the Perfect Fit (RRP £16.99, Pottercraft) and an LK exclusive back to school quick knit by Susie Johns.
You’ll find all of this plus more over the next month on our brand, new blog at www.letsknit.co.uk
