Morning all, after the rain yesterday, it was great to see perfect blue skies this morning,although it's a bit chilly (it IS April of course!). The shop is open, looking beautiful and Treacle's mind is buzzing with ideas. We're listening to the lovely Lauren Laverne on 6music, drinking Early Grey, plotting and planning more new projects!
We also put a discussion point for Monday out to our Facebook friends yesterday, inviting them to tell us what their WIP (Work In Progress) is at the moment. The posts were so diverse and interesting, we really do have a wealth of crafters in our world! If you haven't joined as one of our Friends, please do - www.facebook.com, search treaclewoolshop. If you invite on of your friends and they are our 200th Friend, we'll give you both a Knitting Kit FREE!
One of the WIP was using our lovely Katia Dolce Merino 4 ply - the colour palette is fantastic, the yarn make up is 50% merino/50% acrylic and it's so soft to work with. And at £2.99/200 metres/4 ply tension, it makes it great value for any 4 ply pattern! This is a new range we stock and feedback from our customers has been great.
Treacle has also been in the news. The Morpeth Herald featured Prince William and his bride-to-be Kate Middleton, who are visiting the shop at the moment, helping to promote their book, Knit Your Own Royal Wedding (£9.99). A great stash buster and patterns for the whole family, from the Queen to Camilla! Lots of fun!
Happy Knitting, Treacle
