Let’s kickstart the summer with our new collection of simple summer knits in fresh zesty hues to brighten every day – and don’t miss our special bumper pattern book, it’s a knitter’s dream!
In this issue, we are footloose and fancy free, with a selection of light and easy tops to make the most of whatever warm weather comes our way. Plus, we have lined up some wonderful toys and mascots, including an incredibly tactile sensory ball by Val Pierce to help a youngster’s play and development, a rocket by Sarah Keen that is out of this world, and some very special key workers that would make perfect gifts for friends or carers, as well as any budding nurse. If you’re planning a get-together or just want to zing up your indoor or outdoor space, we have a sunny cushion and a fruity theme of citrus-inspired placemats and tropical bunting that is guaranteed to raise a smile. We’ve also caught up with some community-minded knitters and can’t wait to share what they have been up to. Finally, if you want to improve your phone snaps of your makes for Insta or Facebook, our guide to taking better pictures will get you there!
Here’s a special preview of what’s in store!
