GIVE AWAY and Happy New Year

The names have been put into a hat, and the lucky winner has been drawn. You may recall from last week that a little give away is being conducted. Drum roll please! And the winner of a complimentary copy of SOCK ANATOMY is…Aphaia! The pattern shall be sent to you via Ravelry. Congrats!

Don’t worry if you didn’t win folk, because all Ginger Twisters have a coupon code of their own for 20% off. So use it! The code word for your Ravelry checkout cart is ‘ginger1’

 
As January is the month of Burns Night (the 25th), GTS’ theme for the month is Robert Burns and his works interpreted into wool. A new item will be added to the window display each week, along with the poem or song it relates to. As I’ve not been in the shop since the 2014 has come along, the window display will be changing when I open back up on the 3rd. Tomorrow’s themed item will feature the Wool of the Month to the tune of Auld Lang Syne. Oh what could it be??

In the meantime, here is a taster of recent additions to my knitting world.

There are a few other things that have yet to be photographed. Luckily I was a good girl and got a fancy new camera for my Christmas!

Ginger Twist Studio has now been open 6 months, and its really been an whirlwind. Fun, exciting and stressful at times. I’m really excited for what potential the new year holds. But after running the shop for 6 months, this busy bee has been able to take a few days off over the holidays. Hallelujah! Mind you, I am spending most of this free time knitting and dyeing yarn (while in my lounge wear) and hanging out with my loved ones. It’s been fabulous. And I’m now very much looking forward to getting back into the shop tomorrow.
