We are nearing the end of the school holidays now, 1 week to go 🙂 I currently have a husband with a broken arm, 10 year old gaming fan who is glued to his gaming chair and 7 year old who has autism so that has meant we haven’t done too much over the holidays. My husband works from home so it has been quite hard balancing everything. I think we are all ready to get back into school/work routine.
Wool to your door news – I created a new yarn pack this week that includes two of the new Stylecraft special DK colours.
This is a six ball yarn pack at £10.50 which means you are getting each ball for £1.75. The colours are;
I think the colours work really nicely together and hope to use them in my next project. This yarn pack is called Rose garden.
What am I working on? – Squares squares squares 🙂 I have a slightly crazy idea for a blanket, so far I have made 17 squares for the blanket but I need 22 more. I am really enjoying it though and managing to fit some crocheting time even with the endless requests for food from the boys. We are going through an alarming amount of crisps during the holidays!!
I am using a crocheted square pattern from the Stockton Squares blanket pattern which is currently on sale (only £1.80). Once I have finished the squares I am planning a deep border using lots of different greens.
Ali Crafts Designs SALE – There is currently a sale over at Ali Crafts designs, initially it was just for the Bank Holiday Weekend but we have decided to extend the sale until the 1st September 2017. Why not grab yourself a bargain PDF download pattern…if you prefer printed patterns we sell them here at Wool to your door.
Hope everyone has a great week. Don’t forgot to give us a follow on Instagram – the link is the right hand side bar or search for “wool to your door”.
Three new Stylecraft special DK have been released this week, Lincoln, Blush and Lapis. I love the wide range of colours already available in Stylecraft special DK, and there really is a colour for every project. Now we have three extra ones to chose from!
Spider Shawl – I managed to finish crocheting Ali Crafts Spider shawl this week. I have never made a shawl before but found the pattern so easy to follow. The tweedy yarn is soft and lovely to use so the shawl grew quickly and didn’t take me long to crochet even though it’s the school holidays.
I have been inspired by the new Lincoln colour and I am making a new blanket made up of some of the different coloured Stylecraft greens. I have a rough plan of how the blanket is going to turn out but it is going to be quite different. Fingers crossed everything goes to plan.

The weather has been a little better this week so we have managed to get the boys out for a few walks. It has been a busy week but only two weeks left of the school holidays now.
