It's been a bit manic.

The last few weeks have whizzed by. We were insanely busy getting the Etsy Craft Party sorted. Then I had to get my VAT return done (I hate it, but at least it means I'm never more than 3 months behind on accounts work...). Things started to return to normal last week. We had a lovely knit & natter on Thursday with three new faces. Then Saturday came, and with it back to back workshops, with...

We now have whole sets of knitting needles in stock - in their very own bark cloth storage bag.  You get 18 pairs ranging in size from 2mm - 10mm. Great for beginners and veterans alike. They're 25cm long and made from lovely warm bamboo.

Mad dogs and Northerners

We had a fabulous birthday. I got to give presents to little girls (and big ones) and many cakes were eaten. Amy and Denise wore big puffy frocks. We got some lovely 1st birthday cards and Roisin even brought us posh tea all the way from Paris! Thank you to everyone who came along, we hope you enjoyed your sweetie bags if you weren't lucky enough to win a prize.

Zoë made me a felt pug brooch! He is the cutest thing, I love him. He's been living on my clothes for over a week now.
If you'd like one of these, you can purchase one over at The Granny Square,  or we'll have them in the shop soon.

It was Paul's birthday last week. As he's a huge fan of Caramels and Scotland in general, and has recently started baking yummy biscuits, we decided to give him an exceedingly manly Gillian Kyle apron. Here he is, looking manly:

We have noticed recently that Paul is physically unable to have his photo taken without pulling a funny face. See:

In other news, we had a lovely blog mention this week- Suzi over at Rock Villa Designs popped in to the shop last Saturday and took some pretty pictures. Click here to see what she thinks of us!

Phew. It's all go.

Bright and sunny

What a lovely day! Finally, it feels like winter is behind us. We actually had the shop door propped open all day, and popped to Cow for a milkshake. Yum.

The Cath Kidston van was out enjoying the sunshine today too! They are due to open on Thursday, which we're all very excited about. We think Cath will draw loads of lovely new shoppers to Leamington, and just being round the corner from us will...

A couple of finished projects

We've all been quite productive at Knit & Natter lately. There are a few projects nearly complete, my larksfoot blanket is almost done. I've been stalling it's completion as I don't have another project lined up yet... Maybe I'll try a bit of knitting again. Maybe.

Crochet tool belt!

Knit and natter was lovely and busy again last night, many of our favourite people came along to eat carrot cake:

Lemon shortbread button biscuits:

And crazy pink butterfly biscuits:
Oh yes, I think some people also did some knitting and crochet, between sweet courses and slurps of tea! You would be amazed how quickly that lot gets eaten by 10 hungry knitters.

Denise was also celebrating her Birthday...
