Raffle enteries!

After inviting everyone to come along to our Open Weekend with something crafted from our fibre or wool, it was great to see lots of entrants to the raffle to win a goodie bag.
We had some amazing things entered! From felted sheep, to experiments gone wrong with knitting then felting! And everything in between! It was lovely to hear the stories of creations also, from companionship in hospital to whipping something up on the journey to the mill. Again, we love seeing what you have made … we have a group on Ravelry dedicated to showing off your finished objects here.

Here are photos of what was entered, in no particular order. Winners will be picked and announced in at the end of June … sorry for the delay John and Juliet have gone off on their holidays and want to be here for the grand raffle prize drawer!  We will keep you posted and let you know the winners…

    This was a lovely day! Thank you for showing my spinning on your blog. I will knit my fairisle yoke sweater with it soon. The tops I have just bought will one day be a fairisle striped waistcoat.

  2. It’s great seeing the things other people make – would you be able to include a Customer Gallery (or something of that sort) in your website, showing the things people have made with your wools.

  3. Thats such a lovely idea, and definitely something we can look into when we re-vamp our website, but for now we have a group on Ravelry where everyone can share what they have made with our fibre / yarn. Its here…
