Entering August normally means everyone is getting excited for summer holidays and going to the beach!
However over here, us knitters, spinners, crocheters and crafters are getting excited as it means its coming closer to sweater weather! Don’t get us wrong we love the British summer time and the seaside. But what about all the knitting!?
The perfectly timed arrival of Pom Pom Quarterly’s Issue 22 has got us thinking! A beautiful issue as ever, you can see every item to knit here on their Ravelry page.

Thank you so much for everyone who came to visit our stand at Fibre East! We had a wonderful time.
If you couldn’t make it here are some photos of our stand to show you all the woolly treasures we took with! And a close up look of a few of the Tops we took along too.
With Fibre East just round the corner we are busy at the Mill whipping up Tops, Tops and more Tops!
Firstly, thank you to the amazing women at PomPom Quarterly for hosting such a wonderful weekend and congratulations on celebrating your 5 year anniversary. And thank you for hosting such inspirational talks and bringing together so many amazing people.
In just a couple of days we will be heading to the big city of London for Pomfest! The fabulous PomPom Quarterly magazine is 5 years old this year and we will be celebrating with lots of yarn, knitting and partying!
So without further ado, drum roll please…..
The moment you have all been waiting for…
We have stuck our mitts into our fibre can and plucked out the winners of our lucky dip prize draw for John Arbon ‘Show & Tell’ at our Mill Open Weekend last month.
Winning a mix of prizes including 8 mini skeins in a medley of colours, Goodie Bags with woolly treats and Mill Memberships (do not worry, these will only be for those who are not already Mill Members). Each winner will be contacted and prizes sent out by mid July.
And the winners are…
Here are the amazing raffle entrants before the winners get notified tomorrow! Good luck!
We are back safe and sound from Woolfest 2017! Thank you for having us and thank you to all that came to our stand.
We were visited by a lovely lady named Alison who came along last year with an amazing hand spun and hand knitted Harvest Hues (Merino / Zwartbles blend) cardigan in Pomegranate
We will be leaving for Woolfest in a matter of days and look forward to seeing you all in beautiful Cumbria where we will be accompanied by our Yarns, Tops and Socks!
Along with our other yarn ranges and tops blends, we will be taking new Devonia range in DK & 4ply and a selection of the coloured Tops as well!
Wow, we had a fabulous and amazing Mill Open Weekend last weekend!
Thank you so much to everyone who came to visit us at the Mill where all our woolly magic happens! We hope you had a splendid time – we all did. It’s such a pleasure to meet all you wonderful fibre folk, to give you tours of our Mill and show you behind the fluffy scenes into the heart of our spinning machines, cogs and mechanics!
