Spring in your step.

This time of year is very active about the Mill.  We are planning & spinning ranges for the new year & we are still on a high for the Knit August Nights Knitters Retreat.  KAN was a huge success for all those who attended & Skeinz - helped obviously because it's my wee "something I do in my spare time" project, but also because KAN-annites are a passionate bunch of crafters who make the event all their own.

Ian Kelly tour guide - he claims his is the best tour as he's better looking and tells jokes - modest much?
Its a perfect opportunity for us to catch up with online customers we have never met and rejoice in seeing old friends.  We have a couple of Mill tours to lift the veil of what goes on behind the scenes and our online customers get to ferret, fossick & fondle their way through the Skeinz shop.  The Retreat reached capacity numbers this year and I am predicting it will do the same for next - so save this date now:  Knit August Nights August 29th - 31st 2014.

Freshly Brushed Filigree
My focus is now on the new products in the pipeline.  One of those is a cobweb Kid Mohair.  We have been getting more & more inquiries about Skeinz yarns that could substitute into patterns using these dreamy yarns, so we thought it was time to produce our own range.  It will be called Vintage Filigree because we are using the Vintage colour palette.  This gives us some beautiful ethereal colours alongside some contemporary brights - watch this space - Vintage Filigree is due in store early next month.
