Hold the front page!

Look what I found on Ebay today. We have sock blockers made on the Isle of Wight!

I'm very happy with the blockers I have from America but these are much closer to home - in fact my childhood home to be exact. I am very excited and impressed that someone finally heard our call. Of course, despite the forest of blockers I already have I need to try a set of these.

Hi Jane! Thank you so much for linking us to your blog! We are really pleased with the response to our UK made blockers and have just had an order in response to your link....FAB! As a thankyou, we'd like to offer you 10% discount on any future order you might place. If any of your readers would like to order a pair, they will receive a free set of stitch markers if they mention your blog. The markers are made with semi precious stones, flourite, which are said to help concentration- good for tricky patterns! Thanks again, Jane.
