The ladies of the Fenton Knitting Group have been delivering bags full of blue, green and white pompoms all morning, so that I will have enough to make a woolly garland to hang outside on Sunday. I’m opening my garden to the public then as a fundraiser for the Nystagmus Network, a charity very close to my heart, and the pompoms are all in the charity’s colours.
THANK YOU SO MUCH, LADIES!
On Sunday 24 June we shall be opening our tiny cottage garden to the public to raise money for the Nystagmus Network, a charity very close to our hearts. There may be some yarn bombing – there will definitely be cakes!

Halloween is a fairly big occasion in Fenton, so it’s fun to join in with a display. We have chocolate eye balls and other ghoulish treats all ready for the trick or treaters. The trumpkin carving went quite well and at handmadebysoo towers we managed to work in quite a lot of wool, too!
In memory of Meka.
