Two quick announcements: hours and Sunday Spin In

Quick note to say that on Monday, 1 Nov, the shop will open at 12:30p, to allow a bit of rest and restocking of the wool from the Knitting and Stitching show (did you know we have some new wools? Ooh, yes, gorgeous stuff that alpaca!)

As well, the monthly Sunday Spin In won’t be happening this Sunday, according to Roseanne. But we’ll see you all next month for the fibre fun!

Sneak Peek


I went along to help Lisa and Jacqui (and sundry other Sisks!) set up for the massive weekend that’s about to happen in the RDS…


I didn’t forget you! While I was there, I sneakily snapped away on my phone camera…


Looking gooooood!


We’re there the whole weekend, from Thursday right through til Sunday, at stand K13 (same place as last year!). We’ve got that secret new range of yarn, at special show prices. We’ve got more colours and more types of our usual stock. We’ve got special little kits made up. We’ve got beginner lessons going on. We’ve tied on our special green This Is Knit aprons and we’re READY!

See you there!

K&S Show

It’s that time again! The Knitting & Stitching Show is rolling into town next week and the doors will be open from Thursday 28th October to Sunday 1st November.

We’ll be there on Stand K13 with more goodies than ever before, including an entirely new range of yarn that we are launching at the Show. Can I get a “squeeeeeeee”?!?

It’s all go here, with mega deliveries arriving at the shop and at our homes (space is starting to become an issue!)… We’ll also be giving beginner knitting lessons every day at the event, with participants working on a pair of super-simple fingerless mitts.

The shop will be business-as-usual apart from the following small adjustments to hours:

Thursday 28th October – closed at 6pm
Sunday 31st October – CLOSED

Don’t forget we are also closed this coming Bank Holiday Sunday and Monday … so stock up on your knitting supplies for the long weekend before Saturday at 5.30pm 😉
