The colours are so beguiling that they should carry a health warning - you may faint away at the very sight of them! Just looking at them makes you happy. Isn't that what it's all about?

After the drabness of winter, blossoms have appeared and daffodils trumpet the imminent arrival of Spring here in Oxford. Nature is catching up with us knitters who understand well the transformative power of colour in our lives and on our needles.

Let Storm Gareth rage to match the current national sentiment. The extension of chilly winter weather means that the inclination to knit something cosy persists and that makes us happy. In our corner of northern Europe, where we know a lot about meteorlogical mood swings, it's always wise to always have an extra layer within easy reach, whatever the season. There's no excuse for a knitter to be idle! 

With this in mind, and in order to make more shelf space for the upcoming Spring/Summer season's yarns, we are having a sale of chunky and super chunky yarns for one week only. You can help us clear the decks. See below for details of sale yarns.

We look forward to seeing you soon. Happy Knitting!

James has just finished knitting this colourful Fair Isle jumper using a variety of DK yarns.  It wasn't knitted to a pattern, though it is knitted top down, and the desgins were made up as he went along.

Suzie has knitted this two colour brioche cowl using a combination of Rowan Felted Tweed and Fibre Co. Knightsbrisdge yarns.  The pattern is Adoration Syncopation by Steven West available on Ravelry.



Laura has knitted a smaller version of the popular Noro Hearts throw using Noro Kureyon yarn. Her month-old baby daughter Xanthe, clearly enjoys lying on it!


Penny has also knitted another fabulos version of the Noro Hearts throw seen below. Here's what she says about finishing the throw as, unlike others who have made it, she has created visible seams that frame each block creating a lovely effect:  "I knitted it in 5 strips, then joined them using a crochet hook. I then made chains across using a crochet hook to outline the squares. Then I made a crochet edge with 2 rows of double crochet."



We have a couple of Noro Hearts Throw kits still available in store. The kit includes nineteen x 50g balls of colourful Noro Kureyon yarn as well as the pattern. The full price for the yarn is £151.05 (at £7.95 per ball) and for the pattern, £4.95, making an RRP of £156.00. We are offering the full kit for £135.00 making a saving of £21.00!  There is limied availability so hurry while stocks last! 

Jenny is wearing a Fair Isle sweater that is made using Jamieson's Spindrift. Great colour choice and dazzlingly well-knitted!




Kate - our crochet guru - has made this lovely shawl using our favourie Aussie sock yarn, Perth. Kate teaches Learn to Crochet classes at OYS as well as Crochet Improvers where she could teach you to make this shawl!

 



We just love a poncho - there is one to be found for every season. Elspeth has knitted this Cloudberry Poncho from the Rowan Moordale pattern collection using Rowan's Alpaca Soft yarn. It looks wonderful to wear!


Susie has knitted two jumpers - see below. The first picture shows her sister Carol wearing a jumper knitted for her with Rowan Alpaca Soft DK. Susie found the yarn wonderful to work with and the pattern is to be foundon Ravelry: Heidi Kirrmaier's Top Down Sweater.
Susie's second knitting triumph is a sweater for her husband Jim. She has knitted it in Adriafil's Stella Alpina and the pattern is Huron from Brooklyn Tweed (also available on Ravelry).

  international rescue!

We have received this request for help and information from a reader in Australia, it is not our area of experise but if any one of our many readers can offer help do let us know (we have also refered them to the Burford Needlecraft shop):

I am trying to find "someone" to help restore/preserve this petit point made by my grandmother, Erika Berkenau, in the early 1960s.

My grandmother lived in Headington until about 1960  and then in Ramsden village. She was the wife of a Dr Paul Berkenau who practised principally at the Warneford. Born in 1902, she was an accomplished needleworker (and all round craftsperson) to the point that, it is my understanding, this rug was a "shakedown" for a larger work that was destined for Coventry Cathedral.

I am pretty sure that the shop in " Ship Street run by a German gentleman" that you refer to on your website was the same one I would accompany her to when she bought wool, had rugs like this backed and stretched etc.  This would fit as both she and her husband were pre-war emigres from Germany.
What I am wondering is do you know of anyone who might be willing to take on a commission to do a restoration and conversion to a wall hanging.
Overall the item is in good condition except that the hessian backing has been removed. There are a couple of spots when there are some stitches (eg a small areas of 4 intersections of canvas)  missing but I suspect these could be sorted relatively easily.
I am also wondering if you have ever come across any other work or mentions of my grandmother (she died in 1976) in the Oxford - Whitney region? 


Thanks in advance

Chris
