Regia - Arne & Cralos Design LIne review As part of The Crochet Circle Podcast I buy, crochet (and knit) with different yarns and then provide feedback on them.  Here's my review of Regia's - Arne & Carlos Design Line sock yarn. Back in February 2016, I went to a workshop with Arne and Carlos at Black Sheep Wools in Culcheth, near Warrington.  It is fair to say that they are great fun and have fabulous personalities which really came across during the workshop that we had in the morning and presentation in the afternoon.  We even managed to squeeze...

If you have to have a strategy session... > Provenence Craft Co. > Blog 3

If you have to have a strategy session then I find it best to do this with someone that you respect (in my case this was Matthew my husband), in a place that inspires you (the Yorkshire Sculpture Park) and with the right attitude. Having looked at the weather forecast on the 31st December we were sizing up which would be the best of the bad weather days to head over to the Yorkshire Sculpture Park (www.ysp.co.uk).  As it turns out we could choose from either one drop of rain moving up to two drops of rain on the 1st...

Two weeks after I started...

I have just resigned from my job of over eight years > Provenance Craft Co > Blog 1

Today is one of the biggest days of my life.  Today I resigned from my job.  Today is the first step to becoming my own boss and being accountable for everything that I do.  Let me set the scene.   By the time that I formally leave my job (end of December 2015) I will have been within the Waste Management industry for 15 years, almost to the day.   Those years are fairly evenly split between two different employers (6.5 years within a Local Authority waste team and 8.5 years with a packaging Trade Association).  I am loyal, work...
