Xmas Giving

3 Comments

While we all know there is much more to Christmas than the giving of gifts, we also know that those who take the time to create with their hands also love making gifts for those who are near and dear to them.  Or perhaps someone ‘near and dear’ to you is a creator and you would love to give them a gift that brings about a smile of excited ‘new project’ anticipation!

We have put together a few options for you that are appropriate for both those who like to ‘create’ and those who like to purchase for ‘creators’.

This year, for the first time, we have collated two gift packs, both beautifully boxed and presented.

New Patterns

We have released two new Sunspun patterns just in time for xmas.  These projects are simple and easy and will suit all skill levels of knitters.  The patterns are free and don’t require a great deal of yarn.  You can find them in our Ravely shop for easy downloading.

Mesh Scarf – A simple knitted pattern using yarn overs to achieve an open and airy mesh like fabric. Made from a lovely cotton tape yarn, the created fabric has beautiful drape. Uses 3 x balls of Isager Palet tape yarn (100% cotton).

Textured Summer Cushion – A simple knitted pattern using garter stitch and slipped stitches to make a subtly textured and patterned fabric. Uses 4 x balls Isager Bomulin yarn (75%cotton/25%linen). Complemented by a cotton/linen blend fabric backing with button closure.  For your convenience we have put together a kit containing the pattern, yarn, backing fabric, buttons and cushion insert.

If you would like to order any of the gift packs, the cushion kit or any of the yarns, just give us a call on 03 9830 1609 (mon – sat, 10am-5pm) or email us at shop@sunspun.com.au.

Happy ‘yarning’,

Karen.
