ragamuffin loves...all things knit!

We sell this fabulous Colinette yarn - pop in for a ball and join in National knitting week!

It's national knitting week from 15th - 21st October and we are jolly proud to say that this winter we are bursting with beautiful handmade knits! Here is a round up of some of the gorgeous designs that are in store now...perfect timing seeing as it's gotten so chilly in the past few days!

Kearse & Boys Willie waistcoats

Kearse and Boys Box jacket
We continue to stock Kearse & Boys - their super soft felted lambswool jackets are always popular and we've got them to make us, old favourite, Willie waistcoats again for this year! Also in felted lambswool, with cute handmade button detail, Sophie's Wild woollens are gently tailored - perfect soft suiting for winter office wear or for lunch at the weekend over a white shirt with jeans and chic leather boots!

Proper Fairisle from Jamiesons of Shetland
We are delighted that The Killing will be back on the Beeb this winter (17th November, can't wait!) it truly is the TV show that launched a thousand jumper enquiries and we have a superb selection of Icelandic and Fairisle designs!

Janette Murray Icelandic knits
As always we have an amazing array of accessories to compliment (or matchy-match!).
Match a go-go with this Quernstone trio of Waistcoat, sweater and cowl!
These pretty hats by Breege Walsh...
...have matching mittens!
And of course we haven't forgotten the chaps! We have cuddly sweaters from all of our favourite Scottish and Irish designers. Go Nordic, like the cast of the hilarious BBC4 comedy Lilyhammer...
Harley of Peterhead provide the sweaters - just add a log fire and some eggnog!
...or cosy and soft with these comfy, subtle Scott Officers! We do from medium to extra large and also stock traditional Irish Grandad shirts in soft cotton flannel.

Lastly, don't forget to checkout our Facebook and Twitter pages! We will be posting our "one ball" knitting ideas all next week - we hope we inspire you to get your needles out and get knitting!
