June Happenings

So again an other month has whizzed by and with the fantastic weather we have been having, knitting and crocheting has not been on the agenda for many.  However we have been open and enjoying the steady stream of folk who are looking for that unusual or local yarn.

So what did we get up to in June, we had these fantastic works of art from Ruth Makes Jewellery Brilliant row counters that double as a funky, jangly bangle.

This Simplicity Cardigan was knitted from the top down so can be made as long as you like and have sleeves to the length you would like, it can be knitted in the Rowan Denim lace ( so cool and airy) or any other lace weight yarn you’d like.

The workshops in June were good and coincided with Sewing workshops next door at Amanda’s Fabric, so Earl Road was the place to be!

On the last day of June a new indie dyer’s yarn was delivered, Seren Yarns along with a few project bags and notions!
