Thoughts from September 2012

a very special delivery

The lovely Elaine and her mum popped in to fruit towers yesterday to deliver Elaine's contribution to this year's Big knit - a whopping one thousand hats. We were busy knitting away at lunchtime when our needle work was blown out of the water by the sheer magnitude of Elaine's efforts. It took her a year and every one of them is perfect. She knits whilst watching the telly and doesn't even need to look at what she's doing. Needless to say we were in awe. 




the big knit - purl of fame #1

The Purl of Fame – best of the Big Knit - #1 Herbert Hoodie

Allow us to introduce Herbert Hoodie knitted by the marvellous Rachel Phillips. Herbert stormed to victory as a hat of the week in September 2009. Rachel, you have our undying admiration and a place in the coveted Purl of Fame.
