My dear friends, I can still remember when the Posh Yarn group was set up on Ravelry. I felt a bit silly, and very unsure that we would ever get more than a handful of members. And now look at us!! Today we passed the 2000 mark – that is incredible to me. What is even more incredible is that as the group has grown, it has managed to keep it’s cosy loving family feel. In fact, I think it’s even increased. That is thanks to the hard work of my lovely moderators, Jane & Jacqui, and thanks to each one of you who post, read, join in the competitions and knitalongs, send gifts and loving messages to each other, and generally act like the family we are. This is a special place, thank you for helping us make it that way.

I want to say a special welcome to the new members of the group. Thank you to everyone who responded to my message on Twitter & Facebook, to try to pass the 2000 mark before the end of 2012! You surpassed my hopes. Please do jump in the deep end of the group, introduce yourselves, start posting, let us get to know you. Be brave! We want you.

If it was possible for me to send a special thank you gift to every individual member in the group, I would. What I have done, is download the members list, and then used a random number generator to select one member. That member will receive a £25 gift voucher to spend at Posh Yarn. And that person is………..

Ullastigaard. Congratulations, honey!!

For everyone else, we’re doing free postage on all purchases made in this week’s shop update. Dig in!!

One last thank you: both I and Tony want to thank you so much for your continued support of us, for your love and encouragement in the last twelve months, for your support of Posh Yarn, that enables us to keep doing what we love every day. We are more grateful than you could possibly know. We love you all.

Here is this week’s shop preview, full of all our new yarn bases, and here is the Flickr set, where you can see full sized photos of each colourway. Enjoy!!

  1. My word is HAPPINESS. This ‘state’ I struggle to find each and every day, I have struggled with depression 4 as long as I can remember and my black cloud blocks out my happiness rays and to top it all off my husband and I have survived the toughest year yet (we are with each other nearly 30yrs, school sweethearts :-) and have 4 children 3yrs to 20yrs) recession has hit our business badly in the last few years and last July we had a fire in our premises which completely destroyed it. We still have not sorted it out with the insurance company so paying the bills is impossible! Any just when we thought the worst has passed my mother in law passed suddenly away a week before Christmas. So I’m glad 2012 is behind us and my resolution for 2013 is to enjoy the happiness that lurks around me every single day. It’s as simple as that!!!!
