How do you decide which project next?

How do you decide which project next?

One of the joys of working in a yarn shop is being surrounded by all the gorgeous yarns.  However, sometimes it can be like an overload of the senses.


This is exactly what has happened today.  A new shipment of colours from the incredible indie dyer, Ridge Top Fibre Studio, arrived at the same time as the newly released '52 Weeks of Shawls' and 'Laine Magazine'.  Wow!


Flicking through the pages of these publications certainly made my fingers itch to cast on another project.  I then had the issue of trying to narrow down yarn choices.


What a wonderful problem to have, don't you think?


Well, I think I will continue to turn the pages, while trying to decide which yarn ...

There have been some changes ...

There have been some changes ...

During our social isolation period, we've made a few changes to the shop. 


A concrete driveway has been added so you don't get your feet wet in the rain, an awning has also be installed over the front and a sign has been added to the entry of the shop.


All of these changes have been made possible by my family.  My husband and sons worked hard to install the driveway and awning and my son lovingly made me the hand-crafted sign at the front door as a Mother's Day present to me.


So much can be achieved with the support of others.  We're now open again to customers between 10am and 3pm on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays and I hope you'll come to see the changes for yourself.

Even our projects need accessories

I don't know about you, but I love project bags!

I love to have a different bag for each project I'm working on.  We won't mention how many projects I am working on at the moment though ... although it does make a very pretty site when I look at all my project bags lined up.

A good friend of mine, Ann Lemon, is a very talented artist and is now turning her incredible artwork into project bags.  Once Ann got started with her own art, there was no stopping her.  She then started to upcycle tartan and tapestries.  All of these wonderful fabrics make incredible project bags that will compliment your current project.
