It's nearly April which for most of you means that Spring is on the way but for us means that Wonderwool is on the way!
We've got some exciting things planned for the show. Primrose our knitted cow (the successor to our first prototype, Prudence) will be coming along to promote Cows on Tour and kits to make her will be on sale.
For the crocheters amongst you we will have a showpack containing the wonderful Honeycomb throw and cushion from Stylecraft. The show pack will have nine balls of Belissima (three each of three colours) the pattern and a bee stitch-marker all in a bespoke calico bag. The show price will be £30.00 which is really good value.
Like last year, we will be showcasing mainly British yarns and we will have samples on show so you can see the wonderful projects that can be made from them. The Tessellated Tiles blanket and Caribbean shawl will both make a return to the show together with a new colour-way of the shawl (more pastel this time). Ruth, Jenny and Gaelle have been working on new patterns and we will be collaborating with Michelle from Woolly Wumpkins again too. We'll all be there to give lots of advice about mixing colours and yarns.
There'll be more updates before the show so look out for posts on facebook, Instagram and Twitter.
Wonderwool Wales takes place over the last weekend of April at the Royal Welsh Showground Builth Wells -- we'd love to see you there.
