What A Lovely Skein Queen Saturday We Had!

Last Saturday we had a visit to our Chesterblade Hills yarn shop/teaching studio (between Frome and Shepton Mallet in Somerset) from one of our lovely hand-dyed yarn stockists, Skein Queen (aka Rachel Moutrie). Rachel brought along a selection of her beautiful hand-dyed yarns and we were very excited to see so much loveliness all in one place!   The sun shone, the company was delightful, lots of lovely hand-dyed projects were worn and admired, pattern suggestions were shared, people were able to sit outside to knit and crochet, tea was drunk and cakes were eaten, the red kites and swallows in particular...

We are moving!
