Midweek Madness!

Today’s 24 hour Special Offer is for lovely British aran 100% wool yarn.

It normally sells for £3.25 but for today it is at the total baagain price of £2.20 for a 50g ball!

Aran wool knits up quickly so is ideal for any Christmas present knitting. You just need a couple of balls for a hat, like this one on Ravelry – http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/cornerstone

Or these cute slippers – http://www.ravelry.com/projects/weeseaweed/mountain-form-slippers

Simple handwarmers, scarves, – there are lots of ideas on the Ravelry site – http://www.ravelry.com/projects/search#view=thumbs&weight=aran&sort=best&query=woolyknit

I have 5 colours available – cream, red, orange, denim and turquoise. There is only a small amount of each colour available, so be quick, and don’t forget, it is today only.  The yarn is in the Made By Ewe shop.

Happy Knitting!


About madebyewe

Hello, and welcome to my blog, where I talk about the ups and downs of running a crafty business, knitting and life. I learnt to knit when I was a child in the 1970s. I think my Mum taught me, though it may have been one of my Nans. Both Nans were great crafters and my Mum knitted, when she had time. My childhood was full of wearing Mum's warm and cosy handknit jumpers to school and playing with yarn by the fire, making presents for my family and clothes for my toys. When I grew up, I started a business designing children's handknitted jumpers. Now I spend some of my time desgining gardens, as well as designing knitting. The garden design business is well established; the knitting design business is just starting out. I love the rhythmic quality of knitting, the feel of woolly yarn in my hands and the way a project grows beneath my fingers. It is relaxing and productive at the same time. I especially love vintage knitted toys and the quirky simplicity of the patterns. They were often made in times of austerity, when money and supplies were short, but the desire to create something fun inspite of this, shines through. I am a supporter of the Campaign for Wool, supporting the British wool industry, and using British yarn for my kits. Where would we be without fields of fluffy sheep to admire? Baa Humbug to acrylic!

    The yarn looks very nice! When is the green shade going to be available? I was thinking to place a little order, but ideally I’d like to include the green in the packet to save on P&P 🙂
