  2. Book Review: Socks Yeah! Volume One by Rachel Coopey

    One of the best things about working in a knitting shop is getting a first crack at new yarns and books when they come in the door! We are loving Socks Yeah! Volume One, the latest self published title from Rachel Coopey which accompanies her recent yarn line of the same name. We asked Natalie to review it for the...

  4. Yarn of the Week: Lyonesse 4ply

    This week's yarn is Lyonesse 4ply from Blacker Yarns. Perfect for transitional seasons, it is a blend of Linen and Corriedale/Merino wool. This combination creates a subtle flecked fabric where the two fibres blend together. The yarn can have a very rustic appearance in the ball, but linen softens dramatically with knitting and washing, so don't let that dissuade you...

  7. But what does it look like...?

    One of the best parts of my job is to receive deliveries, and I'm sure this goes for everyone working in a yarn shop. There is this very particular excitement when opening the boxes, being the first one to open the bags and pull out the lovely woolliness neatly winded up in fresh skeins or balls. Admiring the texture, the...
  8. Some news

    Remember that nice and tidy workshop area I showed you in the "Welcome to my world' post, well sometimes it looks like that, and sometimes it looks like this: As winter is on our door steps we're trying to get everything sorted and stocked up for Christmas, and as you can see we've had deliveries, plenty of them. We are...
