There’s nothing quite like snuggling up in your own hand-knitted jumper on a frosty morning, is there? This is definitely the time of year when we feel pretty smug that we’re knitters! We’re fully embracing the cosy vibes this month, with lots of warm garments and snuggly accessories. You’ll love the Holbrook pullover, which uses a simple Merino yarn held together with a super-soft mohair to create a beautifully soft texture without losing stitch definition.
We’re getting very close to Christmas now! We certainly won’t be starting any big projects as gifts, but there might still be time to squeeze in a couple of quick knits. You’ll find lots of ideas in our Chunky Knits supplement but there’s plenty to choose from here in your magazine too. The Snowfall Wristwarmers will make a great gift for grown-ups, and the adorable Sooty puppet is perfect for little ones.
There’s plenty to read in this issue too, so you don’t need to get your needles out just yet. We chatted with Sara from one of my favourite yarn shops, Black Sheep Wools and we’re super excited to announce the shortlist for the Knitter of the Year competition! Speaking of competitions, we’ve got a massive winter giveaway in this issue, with over £2,000 of woolly prizes to be won.
