Just arrived

A great new book from Nicki Trench. There are 35 inspiring patterns for beginners and up. From hats, bags, cushions, throws and jam pot covers to a set of babushka Russian dolls.
At last, a good knitting book for children. This book has good clear photographs and some really nice projects for children to knit. There are legwarmers, hats and scarves, a teddybear and knitted cakes... oh yes, and a knitted beard!
Charlotte was Linda's star pupil on Saturday. Charlotte (aged 9) came to brush up on her knitting skills with grandma Jackie. She did brilliantly - learning knit and purl, then straight on to rib and moss stitch. By George she's got it!
