1 It's getting cold - so let's knit!

With the weather taking a decided turn for the colder this weekend AND the clocks going back it definately feels like knitting season is fully upon us here at Oxford Yarn Store.

Karen is enjoying a trip to Budapest in Hungary, visiting her son who now studies at the Liszt Academy there.  We look forward to her tales of epic train journeys dedicated to knitting and new experiences had en route and at her destination.

Meanwhile, back at the wool face we are well into workshop season and we have two great classes this weekend, see below for full details.  Why not take advantage of the cold weather and treat yourself to a place on one of them?  A couple are available on each.  The heating will be on and there will be penty of tea, coffee and biscuits to be had as well as great new knitting and crochet experiences.  Come join the fun.  Call 01865 604112 to book.

Happy knitting
