looks like a really fun event. I will be bringing a very edited selection as I need to fit Savannah, Theo and Scott in car- the new roof box will get a work out…
Since I only have 2 events, this month I have managed to polish off these patterns:
Various cowls and shawls and scarfs:
I am binding off tonight a very nice fat lace shawl and hopefully will have it blocked by I Knit Fandango…
Some, not all of the new silks:
Silk with Sequins-
Silk with Beads and Silk Lurex-
Silk Lace Yarn-
Plain Silk Yarn-
Have also been dyeing of course but that’s another story.
Amazing time last week at EdinYarnFest- what a great show! Added bonus of getting to spend more time in Edinburgh with Savannah and right before her birthday. She took some great pics:
Now, it’s off to P-lush this weekend at the Ricoh Arena
Needless to say have spent even more time dyeing up some new colours, including lots of sparklies which have been quite popular this winter:
And the Pantone Spring 2015 colour- Marsala or my version at least:
In preparation for Paris and Aiguilles en Fete next weekend and thinking about Valentines Day approaching, I went a little crazy one night and dyed up a lot of pink yarn. Isn’t it pretty? I love pink and think it looks good on everyone. The rose tones I created above are available in 1) Sock -merino/cashmere and stellina and a merino high twist 2) Lace alpaca,silk cashmere and sparkly merino/silk and ultra fine merino and BFL/silk. There’s 3-4 skeins per type.
There’s also new Silk with Sequins yarn in pink and a really good red and I still have some light pink silk yarn with beads left.

Happy New Year! Hope it was a wonderful one;I did my usual fall asleep before the fireworks….
Looking forward to Waltham Abbey Wool show and Sandown this month, then it’s off to Paris for Aiguilles en Fetes followed closely by Unravel.Sooo, I’ve been dyeing up a storm. Here’s some newbies-
then there’s some fat lace/skinny sock-
next, Bfl/nylon high twist sock:
then some silvery stellina sock:
and a little bit of lace:
Clearly had a blue /green couple of days.
loving the ultra fine merino lace weight (100gm=800m). It has a micron count of 17.5 and is incredibly close to cashmere in feel. I have finished my Christmas pine tree shawl- but need to properly photo it-
Also loving the Bfl/Silk yarns. My most popular sweater of the year was knit in the 4 ply version:
Named the wedding sweater as I knit this during the 2 week frantic lead up to Alex’s wedding. It’s pretty mindless except for a cable running up each side. Very wearable and the yarn makes it special.
Waltham Abbey Wool Show is next Sunday, the 18th. There will be a wonderful group of vendors so well worth a visit.
Fantastic but exhausting 5 days at Alexandra Palace ( not including 2 days set up). Thanks to all the lovely clients and my fabulous helper, Vanessa.
Next, off to Glasgow this weekend for Glasgow School of Yarn( really looking forward to this one), then a brief pitstop in Edinburgh to grab Savannah and hijack her for her reading week, then a week or seven of crazy dyeing to attempt to replenish supplies…
