hello and welcome to the first of our christmas issues!

There’s one thing we would probably all agree on – there’s simply never enough time to do everything we want in life, especially when it comes to knitting. So here at SK towers, we always try to give you as much time as possible to get inspired and started on your Christmas knitting. This issue is a two-way treat because it has a flutter of wonderful festive designs to get your Christmas mojo going, alongside some traditional autumnal knits that you’ll adore, just in case you’re not quite ready to think about the big day just yet. In fact, many of the knits in this packed issue would work well in either camp! Our cover jumper is the perfect example of a modern, sophisticated festive knit; it will look as…

Meet Joanne, top craft addict who works in King Cole’s pattern department Up early or slow to rise? Early! I don’t like to be too rushed in the morning, I’m up at about 6am and leave for work at around 8am. First job of the day? Could be anything from emptying the washing machine to sorting out tea to opening my greenhouse. In the office it’s email checking, answering pattern queries, proofing and approving new patterns for King Cole. I also order garments from our knitters and update our launch sheets according to what will be arriving in stock. Mid-morning pick-me-up? Coffee and chocolate is my favourite. Fave time to sit back and take five? At 9pm I take half an hour with my crochet or knitting. Leisurely lunchtime? I rarely lunch leisurely, but I…
