VG February 2016 Newsletter

2016 is an exciting time for Violet Green, being our 10th Anniversary. I started Violet Green 10 years ago about now, as the Twin Earth Knitting Supermarket. The first image I have found from the waybackmachine is April 2006, though I can tell by the logos that we had been going a month or so by then. I still use those Opal Brazil hat and gloves, which are too small by now for the son who picked out the yarn and who I knit them for.

We had yet to become Violet Green, though I think our logo colours were giving us a clue. I’ve loved running Violet Green, and am very grateful to all our customers, some of whom have been involved for as long as I have. Thank you!
