If you happen to be in Eastbourne between 18-20th November, why not pop into the Arndale Centre, where The Blind Society are holding a sale, and all these knitted lovelies are going to be available to nice homes, made with yarn donated by Bessie May.

All profit going to The Eastbourne Blind Society, who have celebrated this year 90 years of helping blind and visually impaired people.

Perfect timing for that Christmas Knit Present.

Blue Day

Posted on - 13/11/2013

Everything is blue today ~ Bessie May Grace,  in lovely shade of Dusk, being crocheted with a new blue hook. Just need the blue nail polish to go with it.

Loving the texture, and lightness of the fabric that is coming off the hook. Why is crochet always such a delight.

Today it is beating knitting, as the freedom it gives is winning hands down.

I always say crochet is not about the stitches, it is about the holes that it creates.

Anyhow ~ back to it…

Launch Event ~ The Wool Bar

Posted on - 11/11/2013

The only thing to say about the launch of Bessie  May Yarns and Designs at The Wool Bar, Worthing, is ~ ‘WOT FUN’ ~ here you can see the Bessie May designs being modelled in style, and smiles.

The whole event, was filled with passionate customers of Caroline’s beautiful yarn shop, all enthusiastic, and very talented knitters and crocheters. There was just loads of chat about design, yarn and what everyone is working on, and lots of touching of the yarns and trying on the Bessie May designs. We came away with lots of ideas for new designs and colour ways.

A great pleasure to be invited, and to see our yarns and designs received so passionately.

Best wishes to all x
