This week seems to have gone by so fast and I feel like I have been a bit unproductive so I thought I would do a little blog update. Mam and I worked together on Monday and we had a lot of bits and bobs to sort out, setting targets for March, product updates and design planning.
To celebrate Mother’s Day on Sunday we have decided to offer 10% off all orders over £25. Just use the code SPRING on the checkout page. Offer ends on Monday 12th March 2018 at 9am.

Wednesday was a lovely bright day so we all went for a walk and to get some fresh air at Satlhome. We also had time for a coffee before the school run.
What I am working on
I am currently testing a new pattern which should be released soon. I am crocheting using the new Stylecraft Bambino yarn, at first I was a little unsure about this yarn but now I have made a few squares I am really enjoying crocheting with it.
I am also still loving sock knitting, I managed to finish my first pair made using Opal Safari – Tanzania.
I have just cast on my next pair using the Hermione’s Everyday sock pattern by Erica Lueder. Making good progress today and really enjoying the texture pattern. I like working a cuff down sock but my 1 by 1 ribbing always looks a little wobbly so I think my tension must be a bit loose when I am working knit 1 purl 1.
