The ups and downs of living with a teen

East Of Three

Today, I am going to write about a friend of mine, although we have never met we have been internet friends for a long time.

Barbara is the face behind East of Three, which is a yarn and crafter business based in Lancashire.  Barbara has been crafting and creating for a long time, and learnt to knit as a child from her Mum and Grandma, and has passed on her love by teaching her own children to crochet when they were toddlers.

One day Barbara stumbled upon some knitting podcasts and discovered hand dyed yarn, and knew that this was something she would love to do, and create something colourful that can be used in the creation of something else.

Barbara took her time, and now hand dyes in small batches, and has started recently started her shop East Of Three, to share her hobby and passion with others.


This is just a small example of the different wools available, to see the current wools available you can view them here

As well as having current stock available to buy, you can also contact Barbara to discuss custom made items as well.

If you have a love of knitting or crocheting, then you will adore this shop, especially if you are wanting something a little different to the wools you can buy in store.

As a thank you, Barbara has kindly offered my readers a 10% discount until the end of August, just add the code STRESSEDMUM at the checkout for this to be applied.
