We’d really love to open an independent yarn shop in the heart of Birmingham but need your help.

We need to know about your yarn buying habits.  Could you please spare a few minutes to complete our online questionnaire.

Florence the Big Cuddly Easter Bunny

Meet Florence.  She’s a big cuddly bunny who is in search of a good home.

Florence will be the star prize at our Easter Egg Hunt Hootenanny on 31 March.

I used the Big Cuddly Bunny pattern from Purlbee.com which is available for free here.  I knitted her in Twilley’s of Stamford Freedom Wool in shades 430 and 401.

So, to stand a chance of snuggling up to cuddly Florence you’ll have to come along to our Easter Egg Hunt Hootenanny.
