It's here!

Our little Wool Week window

Wool Week is upon us and we've been knitting and spinning all afternoon. Sandra led a Fair Isle workshop in our Yarn Store. Three shades of our 2ply jumper weight, three needles, a chart and two hours = an iPhone cover/pin cushion, knitted in the round.

Spinning for the first time
Jenny from the Guild of Spinners Weavers and Dyers was here doing demonstrations, and we all had a little go. It was amazing to see our Shetland combed tops transforming at the fingertips. I'm hooked already.

Can't wait for day two.
