Labour of love

How beautiful is this? Karen knitted this wonderful jumper for daughter Mouse. Months of work and a first attempt at fairisle - we are very impressed.

Shopping spree

The Jolie Christmas shopping evening was a great success. Sydney was first through the door on Monday evening.
The whole shop is full of festive goodies. We had a big change around over the weekend and brought in this pretty glass fronted cabinet (£295).
Sydney obliged by taking the annual pic of Dany and Linda with a glass of well earned fizz.
Loads of pretty Christmas ideas. These Christmas tree tins are gorgeous for homemade Xmas goodies (6.95 each).

Knight fever

Erika's yarn is now here. Gorgeous hanks of maxi wool and her new fur wool. All produced and spun in Yorkshire at Laxton's mill, by fourth generation spinner James Laxton.
Erika has produced some lovely single patterns for her yarns. Accessories using one or two balls per project. Perfect Christmas presents. (See mitts on previous post - 'Glam chop!').

Pullover darling

Spotted in the press recently, this wonderful oversized alpaca jumper by Stella McCartney. Price tag £940. Seriously. Time to get those needles out girls!
Little crochet cardi by Christopher Kane - a snip at over £300. Carolyn's already started hers.
