World's biggest coffee morning

Well maybe not quite the biggest one, but a huge thank you to everyone who came along and contributed to the Macmillan Cancer Support charity box, we collected a total of £58.98, plus we have 26 knitted squares towards a comfort blanket. The pressure is on now to get another 14 done before I go to Ally Pally next week! How many squares can I knit on a four hour ferry crossing...?
Very, very sorry that I missed out on the cakes, carrot cake from Deborah, banana cake and rock cakes from Amanda, flapjacks from Harry and fudge from Jo.....

At last we are managing to rebuild our stock of Addi needles. The change over to a new UK distributor has caused big delays on deliveries but they are now starting to filter through. We have just received a big delivery and have more of the Addi Click sets in stock and will be taking the full range to the Knitting and Stitching Exhibition at Ally Pally.

Hanne Falkenberg Donna

Just got back from holiday, so am behind with everything!
We have lots of new stock arriving at the moment and the latest kit from Hanne Falkenberg is due in very soon. Hanne has designed a beautiful jacket called Donna, this is knitted vertically, so no seams and no sleeves to set in. The textured stripes give a lovely soft drape and flattering fit and it's available in 9 gorgeous colourways.
