I am a very lucky girl; I have not only a new camera but also new lenses. Along with the kit comes a host of new facilities and, well… toys. I have been playing – but not all day as we have been getting to grips with Ashford price increases (updating the site over the […]
We have updated our Product list with the Ashford Country Spinner 2. We are very excited about this wheel, having long fancied owning one of the original Country wheels. The new model has several excellent improvements and now comes with three spinning ratios and a built in lazy kate. The huge orifice is now larger […]
The Ashford Blending Board arrives flat-packed. Included in the box are illustrated instructions, two dowel rods and a blending brush. Self-assembly is a very simple matter of attaching the Keel to the board with the screw-fitting keel bolt provided. The keel has two table-saving protective feet attached. The board is of unspecified composition but […]
The Nova needle tips have now been priced and made available on the site and that, I think, brings us up to date with all the stock. Nova tips start at £3.40, postage as usual… £1 unless you spend £25. We are having a stunning day today, a real false Spring. Hope you have the […]
You know how very much we love our wooden Symfonie needles from KnitPro? We both use them constantly. If we had one quibble it would be the way that the size marking rubs off so quickly from the interchangeable tips… Ta da! We offer you the Dreamz sets of Interchangeable Needles. The same fine construction […]
Another new product on the site – jumbo-sized Birchwood Needles for up-to-the-moment Extreme Knitting. Well, maybe not all that extreme – we have needles up to 40cm length and 25mm. Good enough for knitting with roving, at least. We have these needles in a choice of two lengths and in sizes from 12mm to 25mm. […]
We have been steadily adding to our stock of KnitPro knitting accessories and are now introducing Point Protectors, Row Counters and Sock Blockers to our ranges.

They are here, at long last. The keenly anticipated KARBONZ range from KnitPro.
The Karbonz range of needles is made from Carbon Fibre, a composite polymer characterised by its light weight and superior tensile strength. It is a material used in advanced manufacturing in areas such as aeronautics, and has long been loved by anglers – who cherish its special qualities in their rods.

It’s that time of year again, when our supplier sends us an updated price list. However, the increases in most cases are reasonably modest. They take effect in January. It does mean that sometime in late December we’ll be taking the website down for a day or so to update the prices – so order […]
We have new Mini Niddy Noddies in stock, but only six, so get them while you can. Also in a batch of six, we have more Nostepinnes. These are all made of reclaimed Pine and unfortunately I am a little camera-challenged just now, so these are being sold on a pot luck basis. The standard […]
The standard Niddy Noddies are back in stock – and the Nostpinnes will be following soon. We’ll keep you updated.
