Olympic Bear

The olympic torch came to Frome today. There were crowds and sun and cheering children with flags. I shut the shop and joined them. To celebrate here is an Olympic bear at the swimming pool. His jumper is King Cole Aran and knitted by one of our lovely customers.

Happiness is....

....learning to crochet.

Especially when we make granny square love hearts.
Once again we had a lovely group learning to crochet and we tried a new love heart project this time which was very popular. They also made jar covers and flowers and are now fully fledged crochet addicts.

Highland Fling Shawl

It has taken me longer to upload this photo than it did Maxine to knit it, guess who had more fun!
This is the Jilly Bean 4ply called Highland Fling. This simple lace leaf pattern shows off yarn and the colours perfectly.

Jilly Bean's Campaign for Love (Wool really)

If you love real fleece yarns you will be very excited to know we now have some Jilly Bean in stock.
Everything about this yarn makes you smile, from the quirky sheep label,
to the fact that it is made from locally (to us in Somerset) sourced fleeces,
and the colours have the best names: Spring violets, Fairy Wings, Slow Dance and best of all Highland Fling. We can't stop smiling and Maxine even couldn't stop knitting. Seven hours she knitted with this yarn the other evening and she is still in love with it.
To join us in our happiness have a closer look on our website here.
