Spring Yarn Club



I recently saw in my Facebook feed a Spring Yarn Club hosted by Jellywares - instantly I knew I needed to join not just to create some gorgeous pieces but to use some yarn that I would not normally use.

With knitting you gravitate to the same types of yarns and textures so I wanted to open my heart to some new products.


Month One is Noro which is a Japanese Wool - it is gorgeous colours in this wool instantly makes me happy! 

I can not wait to share my progress over the month with you and I am already excited to see what will come next month to create

Have you ever joined a craft club?
