Bye giftknitting, HELLO selfish cast ons!

Giftknitting season is over! It’s all about YOU now

You did it. You completed your list of gifts to knit, crochet or bake. Perhaps you weren’t quite done yet with one of them and wrapped the yarn instead – hey, I don’t judge! But now, you get to make something for YOU. Sure, your friend could always do with another pair of socks, but they could also bloody well learn how to do it themselves, am I right? So let that guilt go, take a look at your stash of ‘too-pretty-for-gifts’ yarns, and pick a couple skeins. Oooooh! How great would it be if you made something for yourself with these yarns. Not only would you have a beautiful new handmade item, but also you would use up some of your yarnstash. Which obviously, gives you permission to buy more right? But I’m getting ahead of myself.

Maybe you already have a library of knitting or crochet patterns that you would love to make one day. But how fun would it be to get an entirely new collection of patterns for you to choose from? Well… let me tell you something that I have been DYING to share with you!

And psst… keep scrolling to the bottom of this blogpost to find a discount code!
