Playing in the Big Top

You have to LOVE customers! The wee knit angel who knitted the Beret in the Dora Circus, rocked up in the shop yesterday with another done in Monkey 3D. This yarn really does look SO good worked up into garments. It's a steal too, just $3.50 a ball & you too can play in the Big Top!

It's a Jam!

Suzanne yarning about yarn at the Fuitbowl Craft Jam

This past weekend myself, Suzanne, Brendan, Peter & Mary all flew the Skeinz flag at the inaugural Fruitbowl Craft Jam in Hastings. The event was a smashing success & I hope organisers Jess & Jo are buoyed on by what a fabulous job they'd done & make it an annual event.

The Atrium at the Hastings Opera House was a stunning location.

Armed with 'Slipper Kits', Vintage & the new Circus yarn, we were quite mean really, making all those eager crafters stock up to make their own instead of all the stunning finished goods that were available on the day.

Dora Beret

The Circus colours have certainly livened up the line-up & for all those that have been wondering what on earth will this yarn knit up like, well one of our regulars popped in Friday with this cuter than cute Beret made in 'Dora'. She's absolutely chuffed with the results & quite frankly, so are we, it looks great don't you think!
