Drum roll…. The Winners!

At our Mill Open Weekend we asked people to bring along things they had made out of any of our products (ie: yarn spun from our tops or textiles knitted with our yarn or animals made with our socks, etc, etc).
Each person who brought along something was given a raffle ticket and entered in the prize drawer, with the winners (10 from each day) getting a Free Mill Membership.
We were so overwhelmed with all the lovely things you brought along, that we decided to pick 11 winners from each day (so 22 in total).
John and Becky drew the raffle tickets out of a fibre can a couple of days ago…

Spun and knitted by Amanda

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!
