There is a new knitting kit in the shop this week, to make 2 knitted hearts – one for you and one for your Valentine!
The hearts are made in Erika Knight’s lovely British Blue Bluefaced Leicester yarn, which is wonderfully soft and has a slight sheen to it. The shade is called Pretty and it is a dusky pink colour. The kit also contains 2 sweet little mother-of-pearl buttons, which pick up the sheen of the yarn nicely, stuffing and pink ribbon, with which to hang the hearts. If that wasn’t enough, the kit ALSO contains a pair of bamboo knitting needles, decorated with red jewels, to fit in with the romantic theme.
The kit was inspired by some lines from Shakespeare’s ‘A Midsummer’s Night Dream’:
“My heart unto yours is knit,
So that but one heart we can make of it.”
It’s so great that knitting features in Shakespeare!
The kit is available now in the shop.
Happy Knitting and Happy Valentine’s Day!
