Last shipping dates before the holidays

There’s no sign of snow but in spite of that, Christmas is quickly approaching – and Chanukkah is already here!

The Cosy Cables KAL also is wrapping up on the board, with most people having opted to knit the super quick Umbra cowl so that it can double as a gift for someone on their list. There’s just something so satisfying with how quickly bulky yarn knits up and I love that this pattern has helped people with their handmade goodies for the loved ones on their list this Christmas.

If you’re haven’t yet managed to get your hands on a copy of Knit Play Colour, you’re in luck as there’s still a wee bit of time for me to get one in the post to you.
