Adriafil Kid Mohair and More Showing Off

Last week saw Rosemary Johnson return to take us through our second of our patchwork workshops – Cathedral Window.  It’s a little more challenging but the ladies who attended all seemed to enjoy it and produced beautiful samples of work

Our featured yarn this week is Adriafil’s Kid Mohair.  This stunning yarn is light and yet warm, fantastic for an evening shawlette or warm for the onset of (dare we day it) Autumn.

We have a range of colours, Winter white 011, green 054, black 001 white  002, pink 004, grey 082

The yarn is 80% kid mohair and 20% nylon and is £6 per ball and we would definitely recommend it if you’re looking for something that feels exquisite yet is a great price.

Back with more this week, including information about our childrens courses.


Summer knitting and showing off!

We are always happy to see the things that our Knit Wise ladies and gents knit, there is a huge variety of knitting and crochet going on in the Ormskirk area.  So, if you’ve completed a garment that you’re very happy with, why not pop over on a Wednesday morning and we will take a photo of it.  You don’t have to be in the picture if you don’t want to, but others may be inspired to knit when they see what you’ve accomplished.

Carole was kind enough to model this cardigan which was from her mum’s pattern collection from donkeys years ago.  It’s called Set for the City and Carole has updated the pattern slightly and use Stylecraft Special in white, denim and black.  So throw nothing away ladies, those patterns will come back (even the 80’s ones)

Also, Mrs M who wants to remain anonymous knitted these stunning little bears.  They are absolutely lovely and deserve a mention.


This week, our window is dedicated to summer cottons, as we are ever hopeful at Knit Wise that the summer will eventually arrive.  Cottons are beautiful to knit with, as you know and Adriafil duo fits the bill for our summers, being 50% cotton, 50% wool.
