We support the Knit for Peace Charity and send out one of their advertising bookmarks / rulers with each yarn order.

They are getting involved in donations for the Grenfell Tower survivors and have pointed out they will need items for the cooler weather too.

If you would like to get involved they are asking for Blankets, Hats, Scarves, Ponchos etc.

We know a lot of our customers knit for charities and a home grown disaster like this is well worth our time. Check out the blog below for more info.

Our hearts go out to everyone involved, including anyone who witnessed the horror unfold, including the Emergency Services. You are all in our thoughts and prayers.

We love the Toy patterns that Alan Dart produce and have had a long association with him. We have a list online which details the yarns needed for the Toys in each Simply Knitting Magazine from October 2008 to the present day.

http://www.cpu-enterprises.com/gifts/alandart/main.htm

However it has come to our attention that the latest Simply Knitting Magazine does not show his toy on the front cover as it normally does. Therefore we thought we would let all our customers know that his new pattern is the Bookworm and it is in the May Edition 158 out on Friday 31st March 2017.

Most of the toys from the Simply Knitting mag are put onto Alans website after about a year, so our list of yarns can be used by customers who buy his patterns direct too.

We do also have 2 of his patterns and 2 of his books on our website which you can buy from us :-)

We know most people are more interested in shopping for presents and Xmas food, but we just couldn't wait to tell you about the new stock we have just put online :-)

We have two brand new yarns from James C.Brett are now in stock 'by the ball'. There are also pattern leaflets online for both yarns.

JCB Fairground DK is a replacement yarn for the recently discontinued colours in Baby Magi-Knit. They are really lovely bright colours which give a Fairisle pattern and stripes from one ball. The 4 pattern leaflets are for children up to 10 years old.

JCB Highlander Chunky is a lovely Marl yarn in 6 colour. The 2 patterns are for ladies but really think some of the colours would be perfect for men. We are sure most Chunky patterns could be used for this yarn.

Direct links to yarns and patterns are on the pictures.

Just a quick note to let you know the last time to order Sirdar, Sublime, James C Brett & Hayfield Pre-order Yarns, Patterns & Books for UK delivery before Xmas (Royal Mail willing) is 1pm Monday 12th December 2016.

Some Pre-order Pattern Leaflets may be in stock as we buy them in 3's when a customer orders one :-)

You can find a list of all the yarn packs on http://www.cpu-enterprises.com/maps-yarns-pre.htm.

The delay on Pre-order items after this time will be extended as the suppliers close over the Holidays so we can't order again until January 2017.

Our Biggest Ever FLASH SALE is now on

20% off ALL Pre-order Packs using the shopping basket voucher FLASH1116

Ends 12 NOON on Wednesday 9th November 2016.

For a list of Pre-order Packs included check out the link below.

http://www.cpu-enterprises.com/special/flash-sale.htm
 
Why do we do these Flash Sales?
 
We will be ordering from Hayfield, Sirdar, Sublime, James C.Brett & Jenny Watson on Wednesday and we do occasionally create a FLASH SALE just before we order from suppliers. Not only is that so our customers get a good deal with minimum delay, but also because we do have to reach a certain number of packs when we order from these suppliers. WIN WIN
 
So if there are any Pre-order Patterns, Books or Yarns you would like that we currently supply on a Pre-order basis, the delay will be minimised if you order in time to be included in that order.
 
Remember - this FLASH SALE will end at 12 NOON on Wednesday 9th November 2016 as that is when we will be ordering from all our suppliers.
 
This Sale is also available to our many Non-UK customers, but you need to have accepted the Shipping Quote before 12 noon (UK time) on Wednesday. You can find info on our S+P costs our website. When you order you can accept the S+P costs by adding a note in the Message Box during Checkout. This minimises the delay in sending Airmail orders.

Amigurumi is getting more and more popular, probably because they are cute and quick to do. We love the crochet ones best and especially love the new patterns that James C.Brett have just delivered to us.

They all use JCB Flutterby Chunky so should be quick to crochet and very soft :-)

Direct links to the pattern details page are on each picture.

It has been a few months since we sent out our last email Newsletter. This is not because we have had no news to tell you - but because the email program we used was not really working for us :-(

We now have a new online email system called Mailigen which deals automatically with all the bounces, subscribes, etc. It has taken a while to learn how to use it, but we like the end result.

If you have not received it and think you have subscribed then please let us know. If you have never subscribed & want to, or would like to check out our previous emails, you can via our website "Updates" Page

http://www.cpu-enterprises.com/updates.htm

We hope future emails will have more tips and behind the scenes news as well as continuing to feature new items :-)
