Midweek Madness – Jillybean Yarn!

For today’s Midweek Madness Special Offer, there are a few skeins of lovely Jillybean yarn up for grabs, at the baagain price of just £10 each!

Jillybean yar

Jillybean yarn is British through and through.  British wool, spun in Britain and then hand-painted by Jill.  The colours are lovely and rich and the yarn is in various weights from fingering to a thicker DK.

I will add the baagain skeins to the shop throughout the day, so keep checking back, if you want one.  If you buy several during the day, as treats for yourself or special presents, I will combine postage and refund you the difference.

I haven’t decided how many baagain skeins there will be or which ones will be on offer – it is a surprise!  But the first one is in the shop now and looks like this!

Happy Shopping!



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!
