Hi all you lovely knitters and craftspeople! November has been another super busy month but we have brought out some exciting products for you in time for Christmas.

Without a doubt the item that’s making the office buzz the most, is the brand new Christmas special which contains a beautiful 16-page magazine and enough wool to make your own stocking! There are six patterns included, to make some unique gifts and knitted additions to your home this Christmas. You can buy it in our shop here.

Close runner-up in terms of excitement, is our new Winter Warmers Book Kit! We’ve produced a gorgeous glossy book full of winter patterns for you to make your own jumpers, mitts, cardis and more. You’ll also receive balls of our softest yarn as part of the kit, to make our Cosy Cowl. Take a look at it on our shop.

We also commemorated Thanksgiving for our American friends and colleagues, by launching a Thanksgiving bonus pattern on our blog. If you haven’t seen it, you can view it here. It features a pattern to make your own intricate knitted leaves that can be used to customise almost anything! They’ll look great all year round.

We were inspired by a young man named Birger Berge, an Instagram-famous male knitter who isn’t afraid to show off his knitting talents in the female-dominated crafts world. We spoke to him on International Men’s Day and he told us why more men should take up knitting. Read his interview here.

At the beginning of this month we launched our new Autumn yarn collection, featuring beautiful deep colours in Coral, Mustard, Fern Green, Indigo, Brick Red and Purple. They come in 50g balls and we show you how to use them in upcoming issues of Knit & Stitch Creative. The yarn comes in packs of two and is available to buy now in our shop.

Lastly, we are leading up to our special Crea Christmas Countdown where we will be giving away prizes for the 12 days of Christmas… so stay tuned!
