Last Minute Knitting & Merry Christmas
I'm looking forward to casting on Vector for our informal Tangled Yarn Ravelry Group KAL which starts Christmas Eve. Vector by Tanis Lavallée was released as part of Brooklyn Tweed's Wool People 7; a collection of knitting patterns from independent handknitting designers using Brooklyn Tweed's own in-house yarn. I've stocked their patterns from the early days of setting up Tangled Yarn even though I don't stock the actual yarns, these can easily be substituted for other knitting yarns that are more readily available here in the UK.
Vector is bias gradient striped stole; I do love my stripes! The pattern gives instructions for two sizes I'm going to knit the scarf which measure 90" long by 8" wide; the wider wrap is the same length but 28" wide. I just don't have the time to knit the wrap and if I'm honest I shall get much more use out of the scarf.
Christmas Opening Times
Our last postal collection is 10.30am on Christmas Eve, and I'm planning to take a short break and will resume deliveries on Friday 2nd January. You can still place orders but they won't be sent until January 2nd.
I'd like to take this opportunity to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a prosperous New Year!
