Yarn Shop Day!

We had a great time at Yarn Shop Day on the 3rd of May and it was lovely to meet so many wonderful knitters 🙂

So what did we get up to?

Well, we had Andy from the Chester Wool Company here with his beautiful luxury undyed yarns and some yummy Fyberspates too:

And in the afternoon Louisa Harding arrived with gorgeous samples from her latest collections, including her new book; Knits From An English Rose.

We had demonstrations of knitting techniques too, in Kitchener stitch, magic loop, Judy’s magic cast on, cabling without a cable needle, fixing a dropped stitch, mattress stitch and Jeny’s surprisingly stretchy cast off.

….. And for those who were in need of refreshment, we had lots of yummy cake!

Thank you to everyone who came along, we hope you all had as much fun as we did!

Hope to see you all again soon 🙂

Happy Knitting!
