Help those who love you by filling in a Christmas Wish list at Ewe & Yarn, and receive gifts you'll treasure and enjoy.
First pop into the shop and spend some time looking around and filling in your wish list, then hand it in at the till.

Love this, guys certainly do knit!Guys Knit! The Instruction Manual Nathan Taylor aka Sockmatician's new book has hit the stands & the streets. We'll be focussing on men knitting at Wool@J13 2019 and this, we have to say, is a book that goes straight to the heart of the matter, summed up on the back cover intro:
" Guy's Knit is a beginner's guide to knitting and it is aimed specifically at men.... So I set out to write a manual that a guy might notice in a shop and think to himself: that's a book that represents me and who I am. I wanted to do that because I am a guy. I've always championed male knitters, and together, we can overthrow the ridiculous notion that guys don't. or shouldn't, knit. We do. And we should."
Have a look at these pics, visit YouTube for Nathan's inimitable marketing vid www.youtube.com/watch?v=e7IcK0aYT8A and get your sticky mitts on the book itself www.amazon.co.uk/Guys-Knit-Instruction-Manual-Manuals/dp/1785211994/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=154004...
