In just a couple of days we will be heading up north from the rolling hills of Devon to the beautiful countryside of Skipton. Canals and antique shops a plenty, we shall be excitedly setting up there for Yarndale! And you will be able to find us just opposite our usual spot this year in the Yarndale Market – stand 81 (right near the Knit & Natter lounge) at Skipton Auction Mart, 23rd – 24th September 2017 … Saturday 10am – 5:30pm & Sunday 10am – 4:30pm.
On our up-dated website and in our new catalogue you will find a number of new scrummy things!
In sock world we have brand new and improved Alpaca Bed socks! A more snugg and cosy fit in lovely new colours, these socks are perfect for wearing when relaxing (or knitting) in front of the fire and or cosy in bed. The new colours are available in size 4-7, and select colours are also available in size 8-10 too.
With our Mill open weekend just around the corner (just over a week away), we are busy as can be spinning, plying, skeining and preparing lots of tops for your fondling pleasure.
We have created a special Mill Open weekend YARN! A one-off limited edition run only to be available at this Open Weekend. We are not going to tell you what blend it is, but here is a first look at it!
If you are able to come along on 16th & 17th May (see more Open Weekend info here), we would like to share a few pictures to get you in the mood!
We are now back into spinning world at the Mill after the whirl wind of Wonderwool Wales 2015! What a fab show, it’s one that we always enjoy doing.
John had lots of fun in ‘Top of the Tops’ corner as always! Lots of spinning folk visited our array of Mill cans brimming over with lovely fluff!
We took along a few new colours and fibre blends, created by Frankie.
Having a look through Ravelry as a knitter does in the evening in front of the fire, i came across Amanda’s work in the ‘Proper Woolly‘ forum, ( a show coming up in Devon) and saw a beautiful piece of work by a lady called Amanda.
Amanda has brought The Three Supreme tops at a recent show and been busily working, spinning and knitting it, into this fabulous shawl!
Exciting news! One of our favourite yarns – one which we feel should be knit into just about everything because it is so soft, lustrous and all round great – has been knit into bedsocks. Even more exciting is that you can buy the pattern!
