Bunting up and ready for the Jubilee

Bunting up and ready to go!! All ready for the Jubilee Street Party on Prudhoe Front Street on Sunday.The window is dressed for the occasion - knitted bunting inside cos it won't do well in the rain - just like those knitted swim suits!!And lots of ribbon in red, white and blue and red white and blue!!
New in today we have a delivery of Trekking sock yarn - these are wonderful for the striped effect they produce with simple plain knitting.They come in kit form too - all you need to knit your first pair of socks - a set of 5 double pointed needles, wool, pattern, instructions, stitch markers and even a needle to sew up the toes.

this is Ann - our first customer to come back into the shop wearing what she has knitted - a lovely summer scarf in Aruba.
And finally - the scenic shot - this perfect family of swans on the Bradley Pond in Crawcrook in the sun last Sunday - hope we get some sun this weekend.

Happy Jubilee
