New colours

I’ve had quite a few orders of the Knitting print fabrics over the past few days in my shops, wonder where that came from?  Maybe I’ve been linked from somewhere.

Knit happens…

The ever-so-popular John Lewis (Coles to us Sheffield folk) clearance sale is on which means I’ve been spending my time rifling through big grey buckets full of wonderful delights of heavily discounted Rowan yarn.

Two new screens arrived today, I always get really excited when this happens!  I couldn’t wait to get a sample print from each screen done so I popped on my apron and got started straight away, the result was 15 new pieces of fabric.  The first design is called Pods, it’s been sat in my… Read more »
