With the Royal Wedding looming we have started small with a corner devoted to all things red, white and blue.
The crown tea cosy is truly a work of art, every day I resist the urge to wear it (I know, I am losing the plot). It is definitely not for sale, display purposes only.
However, the Royal Garden Tea Cosy is for sale as a kit. Start knitting now and you will have it in time for the big day.

It has been a very exciting few weeks for deliveries at Marmalade Yarns. Firstly we became proud stockists of the divine hand dyed yarn from Skye; Shilasdair. Lambswool, Angora and Cashmere mix in dk and 4ply and you can knit a top with only 3 hanks of the dk. Luscious.
Using these seductive adjectives is easy when you are fondling exquisite yarns however, our newest addition has it's very own adjective and highly appropriate moniker : SCRUMPTIOUS...
No more needs said, except for LOOK at it gleaming on the shelf! We have the dk in stock and 4ply to follow soon. The supporting patterns are lovely and I can't wait to try one (dare I add another WIP to my long list.)

The long anticipated Rico Can Can arrived this week and has been as popular as ever

A few weeks ago we held a fairisle workshop and much to our delight everyone was very quick to learn. Very quickly we received this photo:
Isn't it fantastic! Another lady brought her beautiful alpaca creation but I didn't have my camera. The next workshop on Thursday 31st March is cable and bobble, so if you would like to turn your hand to a new skill just give us a call.
