At the start of a new year it is nice to reflect and celebrate your favourite craft projects of the year just ended. Over the year we have collected a variety of knitted, crocheted and stitched projects customers have shared in store or via email. If you follow us on Instagram you may recognise some of the finished makes below. As I gathered together all of the images and yarn / pattern info I noticed that crochet seems to be the most common craft. I guess it could be that a lot of crochet projects, such as scarves and shawls are easy to transport, either in a bag or in the case of a shawl quickly whipped off your neck for a photo. I know customers do regularly come in store wearing a knitted garment, but don’t want to be photographed, so there are still plenty of knitters out there. Without further ado I shall share a selection of customer projects from 2017. We can’t wait to see what you will be making in 2018!

A customer called Sheila sent in a photo of the blanket she had knitted in Sirdar Snuggly Dk (pattern- 4749). Sheila opted for the shades as seen on the pattern, a lovely colour combination.

Andrea was shopping in store wearing a ‘Lost in Time‘ shawl crocheted in Scheepjes Whirl – Blueberry Bambam. Look how beautifully the colours flow! She used an extra ball of Scheepjes Catona for the edging.

Marcia knitted a cute cardigan for her grandson in Sirdar Snuggly DK and King Cole Cherish DK, following Rico pattern 089.

One for the summer months – a beach dress crocheted in Scheepjes Cotton 8 by a customer called Jan. This pattern is from Scheepjes ‘The Sea Issue‘ bookazine.

Onto a knitted item using Scheepjes Secret Garden knitted by Jackie . This beautiful rainbow shawl knits up with just 6 balls. It is called Shawl of Secrets.

Elizabeth sent in a photo of her blanket knitted in a selection of shades of Sirdar Colourwheel DK. A fantastic use of this variegated yarn in a Kaffe Fassett blanket design. The pattern is from a book in Elizabeth’s stash – Knitting with the Color Guys.

I appear to have misplaced the name of the customer who brought this quilt topper in (sorry :(). An incredible explosion of colour using Kaffe Fassett fabrics.

Joan knitted a cowl in Caron Simply Soft following a free pattern ‘Snakes and Ladders‘. There is a link next to the yarn to download the pattern.

Liz came in store wearing a jacket knitted in Stylecraft Jeanie Aran. She popped it on a mannequin for a quick snap.

Sally brought in a knitted cat in Sirdar Touch.

Jessica visited the Craft Barn wearing this beautiful delight. A Lost in Time shawl by Johanna Lindahl crocheted in Scheepjes Catona.

Christina knitted a Paddington inspired duffle hooded jacket for her grandson in Hayfield Chunky Tweed yarn.

Su was busy knitting this dragon in the tea shop. The pattern is actually for King Cole Tinsel, but Sue went for a different look using King Cole Galaxy.

Just before Christmas Margaret came in store with her husband and son. They were wearing matching Christmas jumpers she had knitted for them in King Cole Shine – Christmas.
