Chunky Knit Blankets and Cushions

Latest Obsession

My six year came home from school last week and asked if she could learn to knit in the school holidays.  I haven’t picked up some knitting needles since I was a child and have lovely memories of making a pink woolen scarf. 

Coincidentally my latest bedroom obsession is with chunky knit blankets.  They are hot in the interiors world at the moment.  Open any house and garden type magazine and your likely to spot one.  I love how they create texture and warmth in any space, whether that be on a bed, sofa or draped over a chair. 

Currently Sampling

Laura Thomas Linens will be expanding soon to have a wider array of stock and at the moment I’m currently sampling chunky knit blankets and cushion covers to match new stock.

Giant Knitting Needles

Possibly not for teaching 6 year old beginners but this looks fun.  Now on my craft ‘to do list’.
