We'd like to wish a Very Happy, Healthy and Prosperous 2018 to all our customers and followers worldwide!
After a little time to ourselves over the Christmas break, we're now facing the New Year with renewed enthusiasm and have lots planned for 2018. New designs, new yarns and new shows to attend - starting with the Craft4Crafters event at Westpoint Centre in Exeter from Thursday 15 to Saturday 17 February. We haven't been to the South West for a while so are really looking forward to that one. We look forward to seeing old friends and making lots of new ones.
We'll have new yarns plus all your favourites, and all our latest designs and kits, including the new Penelope shrug pictured left. This was knitted in our yummy BFL 4-ply in Deep Purple Dreams, but we'll have other British Wools to choose from too.
Later in the spring/summer we'll be returning to some of our favourite events - Wonderwool Wales and Fibre-East - as well as venturing into new areas, particularly Dublin for the new Woollinn event in May.
I realised that we hadn't mentioned two furry additions to our household. Back in May 2016 we adopted two rescue cats, Sooty and Shadow, black-haired brothers with just a speck of white on their tummies. It took a while for them to settle in, and Shadow is still very nervous around strangers, but they are now very much at home and we love them dearly. They hadn't been handled much in their previous existence but have now discovered that laps and beds are wonderful places to snuggle up with their human servants!! They're pretty good around my knitting, although Sooty does enjoy playing with the yarn when he gets the chance. They are, however, banned from the storage areas as skeined yarn and kitties definitely don't mix!
Watch out for more pics and news of their adventures in future posts! In the meantime, happy knitting, crocheting or crafting and we hope to see you soon.
