Hello to all my blog readers, old and new, I hope you had a great Christmas and welcome to 2012 – a great year for Britain, with the Olympics in the summer (I wish I had been lucky enough to get some tickets in the ballot sigh) and the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee. Hoorah!
I have lots of plans for Made By Ewe as well, so let me introduce you straight away to May, the new Made By Ewe Bunny.
She’s a very special little bunny because she is knitted in deliciously soft Gotland Lambswool from a farm near to my home. I bought the yarn at Knit Nation last year and I blogged about it here. The grey is a lovely soft silvery colour and the blue is hand dyed. I’ve only got a skein of each so there are not many bunnies available at the moment, but I’m working on finding some more yarn.
I’ve got lots of ideas for other bunnies so I hope to get some more off the needles soon.
However it is super busy here at MBE H.Q. as I have also just managed to get my knitting kits stocked by a real live shop! After my previous blog post asking all you lovely people to help with advice for how to sell wholesale, one reader got in touch and has helped me sell some kits to The Compleat Knit in Matlock. (Thank you so much Claire!) I live nowhere near Matlock, but I almost feel like getting in the car and driving the several hundered miles there to see the kits in the shop. I’m so excited. I feel like the world is my oyster now so will be contacting more shops soon. I think this is going to be a great year all round.
