Happy New Year!

Knitwits Yarns

Happy New Year to all our customers and readers. Let's hope that 2011 brings us all the gorgeous yarn our hearts desire, no patterns we can't fathom, no more than 3 knots per ball, no finished projects too big, too small or simply "not right" and, most importantly, all the spare time we crave to knit until we drop.

Sadly, of course, the year has started with the VAT rise which has involved something in the region of 15 hours work for Tracey and myself. There may be occasional glitches and some prices shown today may go up a teensy bit more and some may even go down. Please bear with us - we've done our best but, if yarn companies raise their prices to us again, then the prices may go up again - which is kind of out of our control. We think we're right at the moment though!

If only we could charge the powers that be for the time it's taken us - and if you then times that by all the small businesses in the country frantically trying to get their prices right on time well - you begin to wonder if it's all worth it. But then, of course, it's not the powers that be in the shop 'til late changing all the labels, is it?!

Despite that, I've made some time for knitting and eating and watching rubbish on telly and, to be honest, I'm now ready to get back to normal. Back on the bike tomorrow, and there'll be more updates on the site - watch this space!
