Yarns Aplenty!

We have great news of a very special offer this week.

Recently we asked on Facebook what readers like to do with oddments of yarn and we were amazed at the number of replies we had. Some readers included lovely photographs, too.

So we are very excited that this week a copy of the “Friend” is included with Let’s Get Crafting Knitting & Crochet, a mag pack that includes six balls of yarn in spring shades. There are five DKs and the gloriously named Fluffy Tail which is a textured yarn ideal for Easter bunnies and lambs.

The pack also includes a pair of knitting needles and a crochet hook.

Unlike our odds and ends, these yarns are carefully selected and the magazine includes patterns to knit or crochet using your yarn pack. Chicks, baby toys, lambs, cows, flowers, clothes accessories, garments for beginners … 43 designer patterns in all.

This means crafters can sit down and begin to knit or crochet immediately. Then when ready to stop for a cuppa, the “Friend” is there for a good read.

If you are a knitter and/or crocheter who has still to buy a copy of the “Friend” this week, why not buy it as part of the Lets Get Crafting Knitting & Crochet mag pack? Then there will be even more yarns to enjoy with your favourite magazine.

We’d love to hear how you get on making these lovely spring designs.
