Make Happy – aka – What we’re working on

Rachel is working on nada at the moment, but is trying to recover from a couple of weeks of crazy work.

Allison is working on her Joji Mystery KAL, and has been doing lots of sewing.

Celebrating 5 Years of the Great London Yarn Crawl

How did this even happen?! Time sure flies when you’re having fun.

This September 9th is the 5th Anniversary of the Great London Yarn Crawl, once again benefitting Refuge and we have planned to make it extra special for you this year so we really hope you’re going to join us us!

This year we’ve got 12 awesome routes for you, each route is named after one of the lines of the London underground.

NOTE OF CLARIFICATION: The team name has no bearing on your transport routs, and the shops you’re going to visit are not only on that tube line (would that were so easy for us in terms of the planning!)

Tickets will be £20, which includes your goody bag (full of gloriousness, including a skein of yarn from one of our yarn sponsers: Erika Knight and The Fibre Co.), entry to the Mini-Marketplace and After Party (with door prizes and other cool stuff). You'll need to pace yourselves on the day - look who's coming to the Mini Yarn Market!

We will again be collecting items to donate to Knit for Peace, and will be having a raffle for a grand prize basket of goodies!


Many thanks for joining us for another episode! You can find the podcast on iTunes and Stitcher Radio (please rate, review and subscribe!) and you'll find us on InstagramFacebook, and Twitter, in our Yarn in the City group on Ravelry, or in person on Wednesday nights at our knit night at The Goat on the Rise  between 7 and 10pm.

Have a great couple of weeks and we’ll chat with you soon!
