There's nothing like a little bit of S.E.X!!!!!

You know what they say girls - a little bit of what you fancy .........


Well last week I was very sad to hear that The Knit Tin was closing down it's shop and becoming an on-line retailer. I had 3 virtual baskets too, before I eventually succumbed. And, unusually, I didn't go for pinks or lilacs - you haven't seen what I DO have - and went for something very different.


The Kidsilk Haze, which was HALF PRICE is to make Tie One On from Knitty. The All Seasons Cotton is to make Bob, also from Knitty. The Handknit Cotton is to make Ce Ce, a Chic Knits pattern, and the 4-ply cotton is to make a little short sleeved blouse which was a free pattern last year on the Rowan site.




And just to add that I have edited this post - a huge thank you to Piglottie for her help in how to provide links!


I am desperate to finish CPH so's I can get some summer knitting started. I want to take these on holiday!


What I'd also like to do is wish The Knit Tin all the very best for the future as an on-line retailer.

Gorgeous yarn and I love the colours. I'm kicking myself because I had a browse on the Knit Tin site but somehow I completely missed the Kidsilk and need some (how did that happen?).

To do html links - type the word you want as a link, eg "The pattern is Eris". Eris in this case is the link word, the word people click on to go to the link. You then highlight the word "Eris" and if you are on the compose version of an entry there is a little symbol of a green globe and a little link symbol - fifth icon along where bold etc is. Click on this and a box comes up, and a space for you to type the url address in (make sure, as I often don't, that you only have one "http://" as I sometimes end up with two). Et voila! Should work - if not, send me a message and I will try to help. :)

Thanks piglottie - this makes sense ( I think ) I might go and tinker with the post and see how I get on.

They may jave some kidsilk left at the Knit Tin - you could try phoning an order.

Great stash, there was nothing in the sale when I looked! Ce-ce looks lovely, I'm toying with the Ribby-cardi off that site :)
