I don't know about you but as the weather turns chilly every year, I turn to one of my favourite crafts – knitting. There is nothing like knowing you are creating something that will keep you or someone else warm in the winter months.
Now you may be reading this and thinking, "Well that's ok but I don't know how to knit", or "I find it difficult to knit these days", but I will be showing you just the gadget you need in our knitting show on Tuesday 11th September.
Martha Stewart’s knitting and weaving loom is quite simply a fantastic piece of equipment. You don't even need to know how to knit a single stitch to be able to use this amazing tool! And it's quick – whether you want to knit scarves and hats, create stunning gifts, handbags or even homewares such as woven coasters, placemats and blankets, then this is the gadget for you!
It comes with a full instruction book with three simple projects to get you started and you can also find dozens of projects and videos on the Martha Stewart website too!
Also on the show, I'll be showing you some fabulous new yarns which we have in a variety of colours and work perfectly with the loom. Plus, an exquisite textured yarn that creates a scarf so quickly yet looks like you've either spent hours making it or spent a fortune in a designer shop.
There is also a really pretty bag to store your needles safely in and keep them all in one place – it certainly beats the carrier bag I used to keep mine in!
I really can't wait for this knitting show, I hope to see you there…
