What a busy week we’ve had – workshop, Hochanda TV and The Permanent Pop Up!

Last week was frantic – this is the reason why you have not heard from us in a little while. It all started off with last week’s poorly alpaca baby. Luckily Lorelle has made a full recovery and is bouncing around the field again, but her illness meant Tracy had a back log of things to do!

Kari-Helene started the week cooking for our busiest workshop ever – 10 lovely people had booked on the Wednesday workshop, and Kari-Helene wanted to put on a feast! She travelled up to Cambridge Tuesday night and Wednesday it all kicked off.

The workshop was fantastic, we had a great group of ladies only this time, including some who had traveled very far to join us for the day! Our first ever overseas visitors were the lovely Amanda and Britta coming all the way from Denmark.
We enjoyed a lovely morning full of sunshine, knitting, cookies, teas and coffees before the rain storm hit in the afternoon. We were all very thankful we visited the alpacas in the morning!

Thursday started very early with a 6 o’clock rise arriving in Peterborough at the Hochanda TV studios at 8am. We had our debut show at 10am presenting a selection of our knitting kits. We had so much fun with the lovely team and our fabulous presenter Alex! We then did another show at 1pm with children’s kits and finally a “best of” show at 6pm. We left Peterborough at 7.30 and arrived back in Cambridge just before 9pm. It was a long and tiring day but we arrived home feeling inspired and full of new ideas!

To finish the week we completed a delivery to London store The Permanent Pop Up. This unique shop is located in a cute courtyard in the heart of Soho and we are so excited our products will be on sale there from the 1st of October. We have had our knitters working hard over the last month and would like to say how lucky we are to have such a fabulous team working with us! We are very excited about the collaboration with The Permanent Pop Up and look forward to sending more beautiful knitwear their way!


So after a long and busy week both Tracy and Kari-Helene are feeling tired but at the same time incredibly positive and are looking forward to an amazing autumn!

Here’s to our favourite season; knitwear season!
