I know that every year, knitters all over the country devote many hours to knitting beautiful Christmas gifts for their loved ones. This year I thought it would be nice to give you hard-working knitters some gifts too – so this special edition of Knit Now is our gift to you. The goodies are inspired by one of our favourite fibre animals – the alpaca! As well as your alpaca kit, tape measure, wall planner and stickers, we’ve also included a beautiful pattern in alpaca yarn.
Ready to cast on for Christmas? We’ve got you covered – from our fun cover star (a sparkly Christmas jumper) to the cosy Holly Cowl, there’s something to suit all tastes. If you need a bit of an escape from the festive theme, turn to the middle of the magazine, where you’ll find a calm and cosy collection of knits inspired by one of the most beautiful landscapes in the world.
If you don’t fancy picking up your needles just yet, there’s plenty to read. I loved hearing about Kettle Yarn Co and what’s happening in the knitting community around the country. Don’t miss your chance to enter our Knitter of the Year competition, or nominate your favourite knitters.
