We are visiting Sitting Knitting

We are very excited to be doing our first woolly trunk show of the year!

We will be visiting the lovely Rachel at Sitting Knitting at her yarn shop in Sutton Coldfield.

We will bring with us from Devon a selection of our yarns, scrummy tops, and some socks

It will be the first ever outing for the complete range of ‘Harvest Hues’ … a fingering weight Merino yarn blended with our local Zwartbles wool. The natural dark brown Zwartbles in the blend creates a rustic and buoyant yarn.

Also making its first appearance is our Alpaca Delight fingering weight yarn … a super soft yarn with a beautiful drape when knitted. The colour range includes some lovely pastel to compliment the natural shades.

Happy New Year!

We are now officially back to work, both here at the shop, and in the mill.

After a lovely bit of festive time off doing jigsaws, finishing knitting projects, enjoying the fire (when it was needed!) and catching up with friends, we are ready to go in the year 2016 with gusto!

We are very excited for the year ahead.

With a few shows confirmed for 2016 already we have lots of spinning to do!

We will give you lots more information about these shows over the next few weeks. Including information about our third annual Mill Open Weekend (dates confirmed now for 14th & 15th May)!

You can also keep up with this information in our Ravelry group, which you can find here.

Each New Year brings new resolutions, so you will be glad to hear ours is to make more & more yarn and lovely tops!

A few things to tickle your fancy will be the 4-ply Knit by Numbers range. We will give you more information about the top-secret grand unveiling of this nearer the time.

So for now, we would just like to say … Happy New Year!
