The June issue is here and now summer really has arrived. We’re dreaming of holidays and our projects definitely reflect that! But it’s not all about going abroad; we’re also visiting the South West of England on our Let’s Knit road trip!
Time to pack your bags and head to the airport, but don’t forget Chania, your Greek-inspired passport cover and luggage tag set. You’ll be wanting a holiday handbag or beach bag so we’ve got that covered too. Even Elton the dolphin is excited about the holidays and has donned his funky sunglasses! If you’re staying at home this summer, you’ll surely be having the odd barbecue or meal in the garden so make sure you’re armed with Alfresco, our fruity table cloth weights! If you’re looking for another quick knit to cast on straight away, you’ll love George, our FREE kit. He’s an adorable teddy who has dressed up for the occasion, with a smart waistcoat and bow tie!
