Check out the shop!!!

I have finally got around to launching the etsy shop. Check it out through the the link on the right.

Things have been busy this week though. I held a peg looming workshop on Saturday evening at Boycott Farm on behalf of the Naked Sheep. Two lovely ladies came along and we spent a lovely couple of hours making sample rugs with fleece roving. They both looked amazing and I hope they have found good homes by now.
The next craft fair in Brackley is the 17th Oct, so I am starting to get things ready for that. I finished spinning all the Romney fleece and started on Tiffany (the Llama)'s fleece from Flore. It is spinning ok, but feels so different from wool, it's quite strange.

Also made another bag this morning, this one has a contrasting lining and I am planning on using recycled sari yarn to knit the front panel. It seems in keeping with the reclaimed material theme that all my bags have.

The first pair of fingerless gloves are nearly finished. I have called the pattern 'Lotte' after my sister, as like her they are pretty and girly. The first pair are in hand spun yarn that I got as dyed roving from the very talented Natalie at the Yarn Yard, but I am planning the next pair in the grey Hammervale Jacob. Should be available in kit form as well soon.

Well 'mum' duties call as the girls have just arrived back from school and carrot cake needs baking and dinner cooking.
