- It stops me knitting.
- That means I have nothing to blog about.
Our latest new item is Wendy's Supreme Chunky Cotton.
|Supreme Chunky Cotton (l-r): Navy, Blue, Wheat, Grape|
In the end, I decided to try the four colours above and three of the patterns.
Our supplier provides an allowance for us to make up demo garments, so I used that allowance to buy extra stock in Grape (far right) and a pattern.

I started knitting the other day. So far, it's looking pretty good: the yarn knits up quickly, is pleasant to work with (no splitting or other nastiness) and the rib is nice and stretchy. Often I find cotton a bit tight and unforgiving to knit with, but so far that is not proving to be an issue. About half way with the ribbed band - I'll put up another post next week to let you know how I'm going!
