It's so very nearly Yarn Shop Day just 2 more sleeps to go

I don't know about you I'm getting more than just a little bit excited even though I've still got a heck of a lot to do tomorrow to get the shop ready for the big day.

So in no particular order huge thanks to King Cole, Groves and Banks, Rico Design and Sirdar without your generous donations YSD couldn't happen. Also thanks to crafty Sue who has spent the last...
