Kate Davies in Frome!

This week, we were thrilled to have a visit from my favourite knitwear designer: Kate Davies. To say I am a fan is a bit of an understatement as I find her truly inspirational and love all of her work. I have been following her blog for a few years and love the photography, scenery, history designs and colours and of course Bruce. If you look at all of the above links, you too will be a follower.

So now you are wondering 'Where is the photo?' Yes, good question, where is the photo??? I didn't even ask her to sign my book!!

I think I was so determined not to come across as a dribbling groupie I forgot to use my brain. Luckily Kate brought her camera and took some lovely pictures and was very complimentary about Frome, which is a lovely place to live or visit. So I don't have a picture of me smiling next to Kate Davies but you can look at her pictures here.

We have quite a few luxury yarns on offer just now so for a bit of budget indulgence pop down for a browse.

We can't resist topping up our colours though to keep the shelves looking bright so we have added the fantastic 'Jen's Green' to our Scrumptious palate. We love this green almost as much as we love Jen! It is well worth visiting her blog just now as she has a fantastic giveaway (see below)

 To compliment the green we have also added some Vivacious 4ply and Gleem Lace, delicious:

The long anticipated Colours of Shetland has arrived and we are all planning our projects. So if you aren't lucky enough to win a copy from Jen, you know where you can pick up a copy.

Now, the start of Spring....

 Rowan Spring and Summer magazine is here so as we shiver in sub zero temperatures and wait for the snow we can dream of knitting in cotton.
