Summer News Roundup!

Return to blog

Hello! We've had the busiest of summers with the Commonwealth Games hitting Glasgow and all manner of hubbub and excitement, so we thought we'd pop all the news that's fit to print into one handy dandy update for you.

Reduced Summer Hours

Given the Games we have moved our usual fortnight of reduced hours from the usual Fair Fortnight period to the first two weeks in August. As such, we will be closed on August 5/6th and August 12/13th but open as normal from August 7th to 10th and August 14th to 17th. Many apologies for any inconvenience, but this will allow us the time to get on with some all important Glasgow School of Yarn planning!

British Knitting Awards

It's British Knitting Awards time again and this year we are nominated for just not one but two categories; Best Independent Knitting Shop Scotland and Best Yarn Shop Day Experience! We would be so very grateful if you went to the British Knitting Awards website ( and voted for us; last year's award really meant a lot to us. Plus you can win a L500 stash!

Advanced Classes

Ever since we launched our Beginner Knitting Classes we've had customers asking us for more advanced courses and we're happy to announce that these will be starting from next month. They will run as single evening courses on Wednesdays from 6.30 to 9pm and we will be starting with An Introduction to Cables on August 20th, An Introduction to Lace on August 27th and then An Introduction to Socks on September 3rd. As always classes include tuition, handouts and a pattern, yarn for the class, cake and tea and 10% discount on relevant purchases on the night. You can find more in depth class outlines on our website.

Saving the best til last

We have been selected as one of only a handful of retailers to stock Baa Ram Ewe's amazing and award winning Titus yarn, which should be hitting the shelves in the next few weeks. To say we're excited and honoured would be an understatement and we can't wait to show you it when it arrives!
