Knitting & Stitches – Alexandra Palace – 11th to 14th October

Managed to get a cancellation on a stand at AllyPally so things have been hectic trying to get all our Knitting Kits together – after many late nights all is now organised and Jon is, once again, loaded up to the eyeballs with kits and en route to London


Lots of kits (and colours)  to choose from – Ponchos/Felted Bags/Texting Gloves/Headbands/Slipper Boots – different skill levels – so whatever your capability – drop in to Stand F33 and say “hi” to Jon.

Another Day, Another Show!!

Well, that’s the car loaded up and Jon on his way – next stop Exeter for him. He’ll be setting up Stand C25 at The Creative Stitches & Hobbycrafts Show at The Westpoint Centre in Exeter tomorrow (Wednesday), all ready for the Show opening on Thursday. I’ll be catching the train down on Saturday evening and joining him on the Stand on Sunday, so if you’re in the area – drop in and see us.
Lots to look at – mainly our own kits – Poncho, Slipper Boot, Felted Bag and the new combo kit – headband and texting glove. We’ve been burning the midnight oil to get everything finished – me knitting and Jon doing the sewing up – so it’s a bit of a relief that everything is now en route!!  Let’s hope the rain clears and all visitors can get to the Show without delays or getting soaked!

Great Knits for Winter Evenings

If you’re game to knit a warm scarf ready for the cold weather call in to the Shop for some ideas.  We’ve got some easy super-chunky scarves to knit – the yarn comes with a free pattern.


We’ve also got some great snood patterns – taking anything from 1 ball of Sirdar Persia up to 3 balls (depends on length and width you want),  plus a Super-Chunky Snood taking 4 balls of Wendy Serenity.


Don’t just sit watching the telly – get your needles “sharpened up” and join the ever-increasing group of people who want to do more with their spare time.  You’ll enjoy the hobby!!
