By way of introductions...

This is just a quick update to let you know first of all how excited I am to be part of this little venture and secondly that I will be making an appearance at the Didsbury Vintage and Craft Fair on 31st October. There's more information about that here.

If you want to know more about me, you can find my website at

Well, I think that's all for now, but I'll leave you with some pretty yarn - this is GEM squirrel in the self-striping House Unity colourway.

mmm purty!

These were for a project of mine, but instead I've decided that this shall be a proper colourway, available in my regular bases, along with a special limited edition halloween colourway

Exciting News!

We've had a request!
Alice would like to run an interview with us in the KnitNation programme! I've got to sort out how we're going to do it, but what an opportunity!

Wouldn't it be lovely?

Oh I'd love to be ready to go to the show, but Cinders still has only her rags to wear and the Fairy Yarn Mother is not due here for quite some time. Maybe next year? For now I am concentrating on growing slowly and manageably :)

So today I did my first little gathering with some 'Beginner Spinner Kits' and Luxury Fibre Batts on sale at my Local Weavers Dyers and Spinners Guild Open Day. It was fab! I had a great time and just to brighten up the blog a little here's a photo of the batts I sold. Next time I will have to take more because aside from one set of batts I sold out :) I'm still bouncing!

Once upon a time, there was a knitting show, a very prestigious knitting show, with many famous teachers coming from across the world. Many yarnies, dyers and makers of useful knitterly things wanted more than life itself to be a part of this amazing gathering. So they all sent pleas to the organisers of the show, begging 'please tell us how we can join in with this wondrous happening'. Replies came forth from the organisers and some of the dyers,yarnies and makers of useful things saw that the cost was large, and that they would be disappointed, until...
One of the yarnies had a seed in her mind, that grew into an idea 'why not work together, so we can go to the show?' She quickly told the others of this idea, and the others were excited, and agreed that the idea was good, but what shall we be called? Another yarnie also had a seed of an idea for this, and so.....
