As a crafter I think it’s never too early to talk about Christmas! The holiday season is sneaky, you think you have ages and then bam! It’s here before you realise it. But no worries! Issue 94 of LGC Knitting & Crochet Magazine is here to help you avoid those last minute frantic crochet sessions.
I was thrilled to see that both my new Happy Elf pattern and my Bella the Ballerina Kitty feature on the cover star of the new issue!
If you are not familiar with LGC Knitting & Crochet Magazine it’s readily available in major supermarkets and newsagents across the UK. This months magazine comes with the following gifts:
- Six Candy Cane yarns – including a eyelash wool
- 3mm hook and 3mm knitting needles
- 42 exclusive patterns in a 68 page magazine
The latest edition also comes with a fascinating article about knitting codes during the First and Second World Wars which I really enjoyed learning about.
What a happy little chappy my elf turned out to be! I love how he turned out. I think he’s sure to capture the hearts and imagination of all ages and bring some crochet magic to Christmas don’t you think?
And with her pink tutu and faux satin pointe shoes Bella the Ballerina kitty dances along behind the elf to the music-box melody of The Sugar Plum fairy! Adorned with fluffy eyelash yarn this little kitty will make playtime utterly PURRfect.
I can’t wait to see your Christmas makes! Be sure to share your photos with me on social media (facebook, twitter or instagram) as I do so love to see your finished projects.
And you never know…if you are looking for more Christmas patterns I might have some new ones coming up, so be sure to watch this space!
