The Festive Season is here! (Sorry)

I should apologise for the continued Christmas theme but here in retail land Christmas is looming large. I have got used to it's early arrival now and think nothing of seeing Christmas decorations in October.
We are very pleased to be stocking some beautiful felting kits designed by Nicola Sugg, there is a cute dachshund, a curly fleeced sheep, an owl and these fantastic baubles:
Nicola is coming to Marmalade Yarns to teach a class on needle felting on Saturday morning, 8th December. You will drink coffee, eat cake and make these baubles, there are only a few places so give us a call/e-mail  if you are interested.

Intarsia Fun.

No prizes for guessing what this is going to be.....

We decided this week we needed a Christmas jumper for the shop. I don't knit a lot for the shop as I am SLOW. However, this intarsia is a lot of fun. I agreed to do it as a bit of a challenge, I haven't done a lot of it and we are only making the 2yo size. To my delight I am really enjoying it. If only I could speed up I would knit the whole family Christmas sweaters. It would be worth the effort to see their faces!!!
