Cornish Organic Wool

Knitwits Yarns

Those of you who've been reading this for a while will remember our websites being hit by a hacker almost exactly a year ago. In fact, it was the day we drove to John O'Groats for the grand cycle ride home and I've just been re-reading some of the blog from that and I can't believe it was us and we did it!

The hacker hit our server and Knit Wits was only slightly affected by Cornish Organic was hit big time and died. So when we got back from Scotland we made the decision to design a brand new website with all the Cornish Organic new yarns, patterns etc, etc on it. We used the same website designer - the wonder Thomas - and designed it very much like the Knit Wits site.

Thomas was planning to go away travelling for a bit (which he did) so he asked another designery geek to do the nuts and bolts on a system which a lot of designers use. In short - it has been a freekin' nightmare with Thomas in China, new geeky guy not understanding what we want (and our technical limitations!) and, finally when Thomas returned from the far east new guy throwing all his toys out of the cot just prior to launch and walking off the job.

New wonder guy arrived to help (Malcolm) and we have now, finally, finally after months of angst (and not a few tears) launched the new site!!

If you get the change - and are interested - do please take a look and tell us what you think.

Amazingly - and gratifyingly - (and to the great pleasure of our bank manager) orders are coming in already. Thank you. We love you all!!
