Happy New Year!

So, that's Christmas out of the way! And new at Three Bags Full for early 2012 will be a couple of brilliant Adriafil yarns - Voila, which is a lovely soft scarf yarn (to augment our current scarfy favourites: Loopy and Can Can) and Knitcol. I was especially keen to offer the Knitcol as it's a variegated double knitting and so far all the variegated yarns we've stocked have been chunkies, arans or 4 plys, so this extends the range. Plus it's just gorgeous. More details once we're back in the shop from Friday onwards - both yarns will be going on the website as soon as Mike can take the photographs.

For now tho', enjoy your new year celebrations.

Merry Christmas!

The Three Bags Full Piece Hall shop will be closed from Christmas Eve until Friday 30th December, altho' we'll still send parcels out as soon as possible after online orders are received throughout the holiday period. In the meantime, we'd like to thank everyone for your custom this last year and wish you all a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.

Lovely new stuff and a new way to buy

Isn't that lovely? And what a great Christmas present for your yarn-loving friends. It's one colourway in a new range of skein of yarn necklaces by the very clever Max Alexander. They'll be on the Threebagsfulluk website by the end of the day.

Also new in are additional shades in scarf yarns, Loopy and Can Can, and a whole load of wintery Rico patterns - ponchos, scarves, headbands, jumpers - you name it...

I'm not sure if the Rico stock will make it online, but if you'd like to check if we have something in the shop that's not showing on the website (this is often simply because stocks are quite low) just email or ring and we'll check. We now have a Special Orders section on the site that makes the process easier. It works like this: you ring or email to see if we have what you want; if it's available we tot up what it'll cost and post the order (without your personal details) online; you pay via the website; we post the parcel. Simples.

Christmas opening times

Three Bags Full will be closed on Friday 16th Dec and closing at 2pm on Saturday 17th due to a family commitment. Sorry, I hope this doesn't inconvenience anyone.
Apart from that, times will be as normal until Christmas.

After the Christmas period, we'll re-open for business as usual from Friday 30th Dec.

Hope you all have a lovely Christmas, with lots of beautiful yarny presents, and a great 2012.

More good stuff on the website

Well, this time of year it seems to be all about getting products on the website and I hope you're going to like these Three Bags Full knitting kits we've come up with - they'd make a brilliant present for the avid knitter. There's a whole range of them but if you don't see anything just right online, get in touch and we can custom create one according to your taste and your budget. If it'll fit in the tray we're happy to kit it up!
So, this is just a sample really of a kit that's suitable for a novice knitter: beautiful Mini Mochi, bamboo needles and pattern in a reuseable wicker tray, all for £13.50.

Look what I've got!

A whole Wise Hilda Basic Ribbed sock.

It's my first grown-up sock and there's a bit of nonsense under the sole where I inadvertently went a bit free-spirited and started working all the right stitches but not necessarily in the right order, but otherwise it's cosy, it fits and it's in every way perfectly sock-like.

Charlie's Ark

These very well-priced Charlie's Ark cross-stitch kits are fresh on the website today and would make a great Christmas present for a crafty friend or young person. Or a treat for yourself...

They were £8.80 and are now in the clearance section for £6.50. Grab them while you can. Spud, Emm and Zeep are on the site so far, but there's at least one more ark animal to photograph and upload.

(Your guess is as good as mine as to why the website home page can't cope with apostrophes - just can't bring myself to leave them out!)
