This afternoon I went to see my new friend Colin. Yesterday I purchased some yarn from him and as he doesn’t live too far away I decided to go and collect it. Colin dyes the most beautiful yarns, of course he showed me his box of yarn and of course I just had to buy another one! These are both baby alpaca, silk and cashmere, pure beauty….I haven’t decided what to make with them yet but I will! The pinky purply one is 4ply and the other one is heavy lace weight, they feel divine. You can see Colin’s gorgeous yarns here
Almost forgot to tell you that Colin makes the most delicious coffee, I might try his cappucino next time….
Tomorrow, I shall be dyeing up some more of the Spin Yourself a Cardi orders that have been coming in, it would appear that choosing your own fibre and colours is a popular listing. It is on special offer for March. You can view the listing here
On Sunday, Sally is coming to pick up her order and hopefully she’ll stay to lunch which I think will be roast chicken and some sort of naughty pudding. We’ll be doing some weaving I think, not had my loom out for months but last weeks Mastercrafts has really fired me up!
Have a lovely weekend, what are you doing?
