A Snow Days Kniting - Oxford Yarn Store

 

  A Snow Day's Knitting!

Today is a snow day! Most of the country has ground to a halt so if you are enjoying an enforced day at home I dare say that you are, like me, knitting or crocheting.

Ironic that on the coldest day of the year the Rowan Spring/Summer order arrived yesterday! The new Rowan Magazine 65 is stunning and we have in Some new yarns featured below. This in addition to the sumptuous new Rowan Moordale yarn has made us very happy.  Next month we are planning to hold a Rowan season's launch event. In the meantime we are still busy at OYS with our winter knitting. It has been a super season for hats, scarves, mitts and shawls. Not to mention socks. These projects are perfectly portable and some are so quick - very satisfying. They  also make great gifts. I have yet to have someone tell me that they are beginning to make presents for next Christmas but I'm sure it won't be long!

Here's a pair of mitts that I made with Isager Silk Mohair and Isager Trio in the past couple of evenings. Marianne Isager sent the yarn and pattern as a Christmas gift. These yarns come in a stunning variety of shades and one ball of each yarn makes at least 2 pairs of mitts!

We still have some yarns on sale that work well for accessory projects and some lovely yarns that are a treat for single skein projects. Come in out of the cold for a browse and a warm welcome to see for yourselves!

Happy Knitting and Crocheting!
