ORDERS ARE NOW OPEN! I’m excited to announce a project I have been working on for some time now.

Due to the success of my Yarn Advent Calendars last year, and the fact that there’s a rather major event happening for me in September, this year I’m starting early. I’ve spoken to the mill and they’ve agreed to wind the mini skeins for me which will save me so much time.… Read More »Thinking about Yarn Advent Calendars
A New Box From the Monday 16th January you’ll be able to order both the Valentines and the Anti-Valentines boxes. I wanted to create the Anti-Valentines box because I know some people just hate all the pink and fluffy stuff so I want them to be able to have something for themselves too. They will be available to pre-order in my shop, and are limited in number. They will be available until Thursday 9th February unless I sell out first.
