A&P Club Box


A&P Club Box


It’s very rare that we manage to to keep a resolution, but we do like a gentle, productive start to the new year and there’s nothing more satisfying than a new woolly project and a gleaming row of jewel like jars newly added to the pantry shelf.

This months Knitting Shed Club Box is inspired by this fabulous shot by Rob Wicks.  Earthy, rich colour and calming mood, we can almost taste the zesty bitterness of the marmalade.  As well as your choice of 100g skein of Classic Sock or Merino & Silk Single there will be a simple embroidered project and a little extra something.

Remember to keep the card enclosed with the box for the links to the pdfs.
