Colinette visit in Wales.

On Valentine's day 2007 I took up a trip to visit the Colinette Yarn company in Wales. I have known this brand for a couple of years and will never forget the first picture I saw of a sweater made from the "Point 5" yarn in "Vogue knitting "magazine. I got a complete tour of the factory and it was very interesting and fun to see how they make their gorgeous colours. It was a complete joy to see all the yarns and colours for real anyway. I took many samples with me and showed them to many customers to see if they liked them. And..we are definately going to sell their beautiful yarns! Wanna know more?

We sell Noro yarns from Japan!

Don't you just love these colours...I fell in love with them years ago and now in our shop we offer the biggest collection of Noro yarns in the Netherlands! Wool, silk, angora, they are all just breath taking I think. Our latest addition is the 100% silk yarn : "Hana Silk". The silky shine on this ribbonyarn is just exquisite and pure luxury.

Crazy Crocheted Bag

Using three threads of multiple different leftover yarns (mostly petrol and purple hues), I crocheted two huge granny squares on a 15mm crochet hook and sewed them on a purple bag and replaced the ugly imitation leather handles with rope ones to give it a warmer look. The two sides of the bag are different to mix things up a bit. Let's go shopping, girls!
