hello...

As you may already know, we start our celebrations early here at Simply Knitting and this issue we’re all about Easter – egg cosies, bunny jumpers and toys, pastel shades, brand new DK yarns and even a few blooming cacti! This wonderful celebration of new life is such a positive time of year – a time when we’re thinking about holidays and all the gorgeous, cool yarn we’re going to squish in preparation for summer knits.For families, Easter brings a generous bank holiday and lots of free time together, which comes at just the right moment as our energy flags after winter. Hopefully, this means more knitting time during the longer evenings too, to help pep up your well-being – if you’re lucky you may get to perch outside…

Now, that’s some view! The inspirational scene from Jeni’s workshop Meet the ever-busy Jeni, owner of yarn hand-dyeing company, Fyberspates Up early or slow to rise?

And sometimes my lunch if I’m hungry. Fave way to sit back and take five? I generally take a look at Instagram, normally @Katgoldin. Leisurely lunchtime? No, I normally eat and work at the same time!
