In this month's issue we've gone totally tropical for the summer! We’re tackling the heat with bright cotton knits, open lacy designs, short-sleeved tops and light, beautiful knits. Plus, we’ve tried out a fab new print yarn with a pretty lace jumper.
And it’s not just our knitting that’s taken a tropical twist, we've picked our top ten accessories inspired by flamingos, pineapples, watermelons and more - treat yourself, you know you want to!
If you're after more muted shades you'll love Louise’s knitting kit essentials, as well as this month’s freebie,
Hedgie, the adorable pincushion. They’ll both help you keep things shipshape! Speaking of which, it’s well worth a trip to Sheringham Museum for an exciting new exhibition of European ganseys. We were lucky enough to go behind the scenes and take a look at their fascinating history.
The newest designs from Alan Dart are a mini motley crew, and you can see them running amok in Issue 161. These tots are up to nothing but trouble, so watch out for flying food and utensils...We hope you have as much fun knitting these cheeky babies as they seem to be having!
