A Sneaky Preview as I'm Venturing Out Again!

Yes, I'm venturing out again with an absolute mountain of ready made chunky knits on -

Sunday 2nd July


Alderley Edge Cricket Club

Village Summer Fete 1pm-5pm

A few weeks ago now the lovely Suzie Dickens from Simply Cheshire rang me to say that she had been asked to fill a craft marquee at this traditional summer fete which is now in it's 8th year and asked if I would like to take part. So of course I said yes after the fun I'd had at the Simply Cheshire event at Arley Hall last month where I was demonstrating my giant knitting with my enormous knitting needles.

So here's a sneaky preview of some of the Merino Chunky Knits that will be making an appearance on Sunday.

The Summer Fete looks great! Apart from the fabulous marquee where there'll be 30 Designer makers all selling their amazing handmade Artisan goodies there'll be lots more to do besides for all the family and your four legged friends too!

There will be a mini fun fair, a wonderful dog show, laser clay pigeon shooting, face painting, a BBQ, Pimms and Prosecco bar and lots of homemade cakes, well so I'm told anyway.

So in between making bespoke handmade orders for my lovely customers recently I have been knitting away working on lots of my favourite designs in some beautiful colours plus some new designs and colours to boot! All for you lovely lot to come and see on Sunday!

I've still got an absolute cushion obsession so I've made lots of different designs, old and new in lots of different colours, so whether you're a neutral, natural white, grey or mink blush kind of fan or if you favour a bright splash of colour for your home, hopefully i've catered for everyone. There'll be blankets, headband scarves which are simply the best for us dog walkers and of course my new chunky knit ponchos plus lots lots more......

I'm really excited to be getting out amongst old friends and makers on Sunday. I love chatting to customers about my giant knits as it's not something you see everyday on the high street which is why I love it so much. Plus you just have to have a feel of the gorgeous Merino wool to appreciate the sheer luxury of it. After all it is so beautifully soft and the colours are all stunning.

So if you're stuck for something to do on Sunday afternoon for a few hours and fancy dropping in for a natter, I'll look forward to seeing you. I'll be the one peeping out behind a mountain of Merino Giant Knits in the marquee.

Oh and entry for the day is £1 (Bargain!)
