Halloween is here at My Mama Knits!

Halloween is nearly here and I couldn’t be more excited! All through October I’ll be sending out 20g mini Sock Yarn Spiders as a free treat with any order over £40 (not including shipping). Qualifying orders can be comprised of anything form the shop, yarn, patterns, notions, etc.

Plenty of spooky colourways and haunting notions to treat yourself with. Pick up a Zombie Breath or Frankie on Fire single stranded sock blank for some speckled delight. Or fancy something UV responsive? Try a set of my UV Heels and Toes mini skein packs or a Sock Yarn Spider for glowing black light fun. Decorate your projects with some fun Day of the Dead Skull or Zombie stitch markers.

Happy Halloween

Zombie-themed yarns now available on a variety of superwash bases in varying weights, including DK and sock.

Can I interest you in a Refleshmint? Why not add on a Zombie tin and stitch marker? The tin is perfect for keeping your markers and small notions together and as a bonus contains brain shaped mint flavoured candy!

My Mama Knits is Moving!

We will be moving over the holidays, so the etsy shop is taking a hiatus and will be shut after 30th November 2016 until the New Year.

If you are in the Glasgow area you can still catch me at the Etsy Made Local event 3rd Dec at The Briggat. Until then I hope everyone has holidays filled with joy and look forward to dyeing up new colourways in the new digs. I’d also like to give a big thanks to everyone who supported my fibre adventures this year through purchases, kind comments and encouragement in general. It really has meant so much to me.
