We know that our customers love to show off their knits or their crochet projects – and quite rightly too, you clever bunch – which is why we decided to reward one of you every single month.

Each month you can share your projects with us on social media for entry into our prize draw and the chance to win a £50 voucher to spend on MarrinerYarns.com.

 

#MarrinerHalloween winner

October’s theme was, of course, Halloween, and you did not disappoint with all of your wonderful creations. We had perfect pumpkins, scary spiders, cute creatures and some suitably seasonal hats, blankets and scarves in beautiful colours.

Without further ado…

Yarn Bombing

Written by


The sun is shining, the weather is sweet and everyone at Marriner Yarns has got that summer feeling.

The chances are you’re just like us; having a few family and friends over for a BBQ, doing a spot of gardening or simply working on that tan. However for some of you out there, the Great British Heat Wave is seen as a chance to demonstrate your knitting prowess in it’s most exhibitionist and ninja stealth form – yarn bombing!

We never fail to be amazed at the talent, hard work and gumption that has gone into some of the fabulous examples that have been spotted throughout the country. We’ve marvelled at the explosion of colour outside Cheltenham Hospital and been spellbound at the 12ft (yes 12ft!) crocheted spider’s web, under a Bristol railway bridge. Even today we’ve been astounded by the emergence of a huge knitted guitar in Surrey!
We’re sure you’ll agree…
