It’s January – somehow the bleakest month of the year now that the parties over, when dark days seem to be endless and spring a world away. To bring a bit of midwinter cheer I’m giving away a ‘wool’ style yarn bowl glazed in smokey blue reflecting those oh so blue January days.

Along with the bowl is a hank of Artesano yarn in 4ply, it’s rich purple colour is listed as Paraguay. It’s lovely and soft to the touch being 100% superfine Alpaca, the hank is 50 grams or 184 metres in length if you want to plan what you’re going to knit with it once you’ve won!

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!
