The Knitting & Stitching Show - Harrogate

....the little Shetland wool hat above belongs to a new visitor 
...who I'll be introducing to you soon....

♡   ♡  

Just a quick post today though
as I've had lots of inquiries about 
'Tearoom Doll Kits'

If you are lucky to be visiting 
Harrogate International Centre
(20th - 23rd November 2014)
the very lovely 
'Jamieson's of Shetland'
have more doll kits available
and you can find them at 
(along with lots of other wonderful woolly 
loveliness to tempt you x)
...and the show opens today!!...

I did list some doll kits here in the blog shop
which sold out far quicker than expected
and I had no time to post that they were available
(all sold within the afternoon!)
so there will be more to purchase at the end of this week
(hopefully from Friday onwards)
and all the details will be here

I really enjoy putting the doll kits together
so they will always be regularly available in the future...

♡   ♡  

♡   ♡  

Hope you're having a lovely week everyone
and thank you so much for visiting 
I'll be back next week with more knitting news x

...until then...take care...

  2. Susan, when I open your blog page, I get happy. Those mice, those little dollies.....colorful, made with love. THANK YOU! I just love to follow you and see what you are up to. I hope you are well? Winter is taking a bite out of our days here, but we are happy.

    Enjoy the up and coming holidays if I don't see you! Anita

  3. I agree with dear Anita above, Susan; your blog always makes me happy. And I feel I absolutely NEED to purchase one of your kits. It's my birthday on Saturday and this seems like the best way to treat myself!

    Warmest wishes as ever.

  11. lovely to see your dolls in kit form. And brilliant to see old established firms like Jamiesons of Shetland still going forward in these hard economic times with cheaper imports

    1. Yes,they are a fantastic company Helen ...I love using their yarns xx

  12. How sweet are them! You're a good mother for all the dolls!;)
    Kisses, Susan!

  13. The tearoom doll kits are amazing Susan!! I'm not suprised they got snapped up so quickly!! I'm particually fond of Layla and her stripey tights, I want to cuddle her :) hugs ♥ Vicky ♥

  14. Oooooh, how i love the Tearoom-Dolls! The magazine is currently in the making,, i will let you know when it's ready! Have a wonderful weekend ahead! xx

    1. Ooh,that's wonderful Martina!...Hope you have a lovely weekend too xx

  15. Your tea room dolls are so sweet and adorable, I was sure they would be a huge success and they have......and will continue to be! Love their soft and sweet little faces and gorgeous clothes. I wonder who the pretty little new hat is for.....can't wait to see.
    Happy weekend, dear Susan.

  16. I am so tempted ... my first grandchild will be putting in an appearance in the spring and a Tearoom Doll, perhaps with some dungarees if baby is a boy, would be a fabulous welcome gift for the nursery.

  17. Hi dear Susan. I not suprised that your wonderful kits sold out so quickly. I am intrigued to whom the little hat belongs to.... Hope you are keepinng well, it's finally turned so chilly today. Take care xx

  18. Ahhh Susan, your gentle world of woolen maidens and mice just melts my heart (sorry for the alliteration!) but truly, it is such a gentle place here! And thank you so much for coming to visit me! Big hugs to you dear one across the ocean! Anita

  19. I happened upon your blog while searching for patterns and I am blown away! I think you are so talented and your blog is lovely :) I hope mine will grow to become even half this beautiful. Thank you for sharing your world and your patterns, you are going to inspire me to become very busy.

  20. Another lovely blog post - and such gorgeous photos of your pretty dolls too...
    Sorry for the late look in - it's been hectic at CG&Cs HQ plus my new position/job is proving to be rather tiring to say the least.
    Longer hours = tired Jo :-(
    Thank you for brightening up my day xx

  21. I wish I could knit like you.. they are so adorably cute.. I love all the things that you make.. I missed visiting with you.. Happy Weekend with Love.. Janice
