Yipeee! It’s here and it’s gorgeous – what an array of delicious colours :)


All will be up in detail on the website very soon, but don’t hesitate to drop us an email or a call if you’d like to get your mitts on some before then… yes, I know, we are evil temptresses… ;)

Yum, yum, yum!

… there’s a speed knitter coming through!

It’s as if this picture says “What? A new jumper? Where did that come from?!?”


And the neckline is nice and cosy…


And the hem too…


And, wow, those cuffs are fluffy…!


Yes, folks, that’s Fluffy Cuffs. And it’s Fluffy Cuffs within ten days.

Whooosh… and she’s off again…


And just perfect for Easter with all that angora…

Yep, as if Jacqui doesn’t have enough projects on the go I give you Fluffy Cuffs!


This is soooo snuggly – I just want to cuddle it all the time. :) And Jacqui is so in love with it that this picture is already well out of date – yes, the speed knitter strikes again!

More updates soon – she wants to have it finished by the end of the month – I think we’ll all have to cheer her on!

Ah yes, how many days have gone by now when I have said – I must post on the blog?!? Too many, because I always say “But first…”

But first I have to get together all the pictures of the wonderful projects you great knitters have been churning out…

But first I want to get together a collection of the things Jacqui and I have been knitting (this part includes the actual taking of the photographs…

But first I have to dig out some of the blog awards photos, and the happy-sock-knitters snap from the class a few weeks ago and, and, and…

So today’s post might not be the most comprehensive, or the most organised but it will show that us here at TIK have not disappeared from the blogosphere :)

Here’s them happy and proud-as-punch sock knitters from a few weeks back. And they’ve all got something to smile about as they’re holding up their first finished socks! A belated “well done” to you all!


Jacqui’s Chevron Scarf in the Manos Silk Blend has been growing…

I’ve been making progress on my Cotanani-Top-Down-Set-In-Sleeve, soon to be decided on the full pattern top…


We’ve got some new sock yarn from Opal and Trekking….

We’re expecting a Lorna’s Laces delivery any day now and the Noro Kureyon Sock Yarn is on the way… promise :)

Yes, sorry – this is very much a “housekeeping” post – more yarny goodness and an array of customer FOs will follow shortly, promise!

A lot of you may have seen this in the newsletter but we will be operating reduced opening hours over the Easter Weekend:

Easter Saturday: 12 – 5pm

Easter Sunday: 1 – 5pm

Sorry for any inconvenience – all will be back to normal after that :)
