As seen in yarnwise

This January you’ll find Little Wren Pottery featured in Yarnwise magazine on their ‘wishlist’ spread, it’s a new year edition and they’re also sporting a fresh design which looks great – it’s nice to see a magazine that so well laid out! Within it’s pages you’ll also find some lovely knitting patterns from a more basic hat to ambitious lace shawl which I’d love to knit. Unfortunately my track record with shawl knitting isn’t that great!
