Knitwits Yarns

This is supposed to be a knitting blog about knitting and a wool shop but, due to circumstances beyond my control (illness, weekly accounts, year end accounts, distractions like children and chickens) not much knitting seems to be getting done so, yet again, I will digress with chicken pictures - yay!

Here is Mummy and her babes:

The FB wishes it to be known that he took 130 photos to get one with all 3 chicks and Mum in and all of them in focus so we can all send thanks to him. As you can see, Mummy was sitting on everyone's eggs and clearly at least one Mummy is white! They are very, very sweet and quite often sit on Mum's back for a ride but FB couldn't quite catch that particular act - maybe tomorrow FB?

We also have one of the late, much lamented Lewis - may he rest in peace:

I guess Mum knew he wasn't going to make it so kicked him out of the nest - chickens are not as dumb as you may think.

In shop news - I had my first rep round yesterday with this autumn/winter's collection - 19th May - I think that's a record. It's going to be like the first harbingers of spring - the first harbinger of autumn/winter has arrived! The yarns were gorgeous (Katia, in case you're wondering) and, yes, I have ordered some but not to be delivered until the end of summer. Their argument was that Spain closes for most of August so they wanted to get orders in early - I guess it makes sense ...............? [Just to whet your appetities, there are fab new colours (and patterns) in Azteca - one of our faves - yum.]

Summer visitors are now starting to arrive and it's lovely to see some of our annual shoppers and to put faces to names from on-line shoppers - the weather hasn't been particularly kind so far but, hey, more knitting time!
