Thinking out loud from 'The Yarn Kitchen' at Skeinz.com where yarn is created, not made.

Yule Be Right Mate!
All the best for the season from Skeinz
Here in the balmy Hawkes Bay we have been enjoying a run of tropical weather - warm sunny days with still balmy nights - real Pacific Island paradise stuff. Great for when you are on holiday, not quite so comfortable when you are perspiring away in a yarn mill. However the crew here at Skeinz are all looking forward to a well earned Summer break.
The closest thing to festive logs or cones yule see around here!
Whilst the mill and Bricks & Mortar store in Husheer Place will be closed from midday on Friday 21st (assuming of course the Mayans haven't already dealt to us by then) reopening Monday the 7th of January, www.skeinz.com is still open for business. Just please be aware that deliveries will be slower than usual due to the public holidays - but a Skeinz staffer will be in over the holidays to clear & dispatch your orders for that well deserved yarn fix.
The best we can do for snow when it's 30 degrees - and that Celsius!
I just want to take the time to thank everyone who has supported skeinz this year. Whilst many businesses have struggled in the current climate - the support of our Skeinz customers have meant we have continued to grow. It has been very satisfying over the past few weeks to start working on new plans, ranges, colours & events for 2013 - only made possible because of your support. So from the front line team at Skeinz: Robynne, Mary, Suzanne, & myself - THANK YOU.
In the meantime enjoy this little collection of images from the Mill entitled - "Yule be Right Mate"
