Knitting kits for sale in Dorset!

I’m very excited today as I have a new stockist of knitting kits in lovely Dorset, on the south coast of England.

I love Dorset – I grew up there so I am totally biased – and it is a long term ambition to move back.  The kits are being sold by Every Cloud Boutique in the county town of Dorchester.

Every Cloud is a lovely little shop.  Here is a bit about it, taken from their website:

Every Cloud started trading in Dorchester, Dorset on 31st July 2010. Owner Charlotte had been working in the jewellery industry for some time and felt that there had to be a better way! Her aim in opening Every Cloud was to offer unique, affordable yet high quality products handmade by small local, British and Fair Trade producers. Charlotte also had a strong background in customer service and wanted to open a shop where the customer is, and always will be, the main focus.

The shop has been a huge success so far and in May 2012 Every Cloud was very, very proud to win the “Best New Business” category at the Dorset business women awards!

Well Done Charlotte!

The shop is stocking some of the Knit Your Own Sheep kits, and, apart from those, is full of lots of lovely things – check out the online shop for all the goodies!

I can’t wait to go and visit it myself, next time I am down that way.

I hope you enjoy the Dorset countryside, little sheep!


About madebyewe

Hello, and welcome to my blog, where I talk about the ups and downs of running a crafty business, knitting and life. I learnt to knit when I was a child in the 1970s. I think my Mum taught me, though it may have been one of my Nans. Both Nans were great crafters and my Mum knitted, when she had time. My childhood was full of wearing Mum's warm and cosy handknit jumpers to school and playing with yarn by the fire, making presents for my family and clothes for my toys. When I grew up, I started a business designing children's handknitted jumpers. Now I spend some of my time desgining gardens, as well as designing knitting. The garden design business is well established; the knitting design business is just starting out. I love the rhythmic quality of knitting, the feel of woolly yarn in my hands and the way a project grows beneath my fingers. It is relaxing and productive at the same time. I especially love vintage knitted toys and the quirky simplicity of the patterns. They were often made in times of austerity, when money and supplies were short, but the desire to create something fun inspite of this, shines through. I am a supporter of the Campaign for Wool, supporting the British wool industry, and using British yarn for my kits. Where would we be without fields of fluffy sheep to admire? Baa Humbug to acrylic!
