The first quarter of The Post Office Run

3 months have passed and 3 parcels of The Post Office Run Club Yarn has been sent to knitterly homes around the world. So I thought I’d do a round up of the scenes and photographs which inspired the monthly colourways, as I did when I devised The Orkney Collection which is still available.

All set!

The Wool-mobile has been collected from Inverness:

and is packed with barely room for my suitcase:

Tomorrow will find me heading south down the A9 to pick up my friend Lizzi, before heading further south to Darlington to prepare for the Trunk Show at A Fine Yarn on Skinnergate in Darlington on Friday […]

First Road Trip of 2014

It just feels like the other day that I was saying I was about to do the last event of 2013. And here I am deep in plans for my first 2014 road trip which will culminate in 2 events.

At the end of March I’ll be setting off south, stopping first at Kelso to […]

Time away

Sorry to have been so absent from the blog for the last week or so. I have a good excuse though … I’ve been on my travels. This time last Wednesday I was just settling down to a lovely evening with my friend Liz, and her husband Roger, chatting over the plans for the forthcoming […]

I’ll be off on my travels tomorrow morning, but Stevan will be staying behind keeping an eye on the shop site, along with the hens and […]

I have been dyeing, drying, twisting, labeling, […]

Home Again!

I set off from Darlington yesterday morning, with the intention of stopping off to see Anthony Gormley’s sculpture, The Angel of the North, which I had intended visiting on my way down to Darlington, but I missed the turn off. Well, you won’t be surprised to hear that heading north to Edinburgh I missed the […]

Thank You Darlington!

I have had a lovely 2 days at A Fine Yarn in Darlington. Yesterday, with the help of “The Aunties”, Chris and I were able to spend time with all the lovely folk who came in to stroke, cuddle, and squish the yarn. And today Libby joined us and added her own sparkle to proceedings. […]

Is Darlington Ready?!

After a number of aborted starts of my journey to Darlington, I finally got on the way and arrived safely around lunch time today. I think Chris, the owner of A Fine Yarn, was a little overwhelmed when box after box after box emerged out of Mungo (who had to ask for special permission to […]

Off on my travels again

Unless I can get reliable internet connection while in Darlington, it will be a little quiet here for the next few days. I’m off on my travels again. This time to Darlington to do a trunk show here:
