Holy comments batman, I think I have enough recommendations to keep me entertained for the next 3 years – and maybe enough places to visit for a lifetime. There were so many old favourites, you know me so well, but also many thinks I’ve never heard of so I’m excited to discover those – thank you! If you’re ever bored there’s a lot of good stuff in those comments.
So, after searching through the spam filter for errant comments and cancelling out any duplicates or multiple comments, I plugged the total into the random number generator, asked for 6 numbers and it gave me these –
30, 62, 95, 213, 244, 318
Since I wasn’t smart enough to figure out how to number the comments I ended up having to download them from the database and opening them in excel, anything to avoid actually counting!
After all of that I’m delighted to announce that the 6 winners are.
I’ve emailed all of you and I’ll send out your prizes as soon as I know where they’re going.

This tutorial includes both step by step photos and videos so you can use whichever suits you better.
This post was originally in our newsletter last week and since then several subscribers have reached out with incredible kindness to say that they'll miss the club but want to keep supporting us. We appreciate that so much, and, although we obviously need purchases to keep the business going there are lots of other ways that you can support us. I've added a few notes at the end on ways that you can support our business and my design work without spending money. All of them apply to other small yarn businesses, and many of them to small businesses of all kinds.
