Are you planning a holiday to escape from this awful weather and see some sunshine? If you are, then you’ll need some small knitting project to take on holiday with you. How about knitting some socks? Socks only take a couple of balls of yarn, so they’re not going to take up much space in your luggage and you’ll still have plenty of room to bring back all your gifts and souvenirs.
We always browse through the Regia range when looking for inspiration. They have beautiful yarns that come in exciting shades, and easy-to-follow patterns to fit all sizes.
And there's no need to worry about bringing your knitting on the plane. We find that most airlines will allow wooden needles on board, but not aluminium (though it's best to check with individual service providers before trying to get through security!)
All the staff at McArees agree that you can't beat the Brittany Needles by Artesano. Made from birch, these pins are very smooth to work with. They are a little more expensive than the Bamboo needles, but once you try them you'll understand why.
Have a great holiday!
