French knitting retreat

I have decided that with the current exchange rate it is not viable to run an autumn workshop at the chateau this year. However there is an alternative on offer! Come and spend a few days with Culli and I at our home in the Charente Maritime, this will not be a workshop but more of a knit'n'natter for a maximum of 3-4 guests at a time, for further details see the workshops page on the Kangaroo website.

Rowan Magazine No. 45

In spite of all the doom and gloom 2009 has started well, our winter sale is in the last week and has made space for lots of scrummy new yarns. The new Rowan magazine No. 45 is due out next week and has some gorgeous designs for women and men using the range of Rowan cottons and cotton blends.

Happy New Year to all our customers!
