Whose idea was this exactly? When it was suggested, I agreed, it did sound like a good idea, and now I am almost ready to roll I agree again, it is a good idea, but oh my, the work that has gone on to get me to this stage has been immense!
Maybe my op back in July took it’s toll on me, but dyeing up many kilos of fibre has been hard work. It was fun too, don’t get me wrong, I love to work with this fluffy stuff and dyes, I just get lost in it, so much so that a day can disappear with me just playing in my workroom*
*for workroom read anywhere in the house that has a space, sorry honey…will all be back to normal soon
This is my banner for my stand, I am so pleased with it, really I need to zigzag around all the letters but at the moment, I will leave it as it is. I might mess it up if I try to do it quickly so I’ll sort that out after the event. I have a some more spinning/knitting events lined up and will hopefully have it completely finished by the time they come round.
Last Thursday my lovely friend Sally came round and helped me do a trial set up on my dining room table. It was reassuring to see the fluff filling the table, and to know that there was even more still in bags ready to put out. I have dyed up 3 or 4 of the same in one dye lot as I felt it would be good for spinners if they wanted to spin to knit something bigger than a scarf.
I am printing off some of my Aspen Leaf patterns to give as a freebie if 400g or more of the same fibre is purchased, also I will be giving 15% discount on 300g or more of any fibre, any colours. Hope I can find somewhere to hang everything up, I have a feeling I will be too warm to wear my alpaca version….
Oh and I’ll be taking all my made up Aspen’s too. I have just finished knitting a tiny one, to fit a 12-18month size
I used DK/Sport weight yarn and 4mm needles to knit the smallest size and got this cutie
all from 100g of yarn with a bit left over!
This morning I made myself a cute pinny to keep all my
pens and things in, I just love the funky fabric!
So, who’s coming to see me? Don’t forget to wear your badge and please don’t be shy, I love to chat..Sally is helping me on Friday and Heather is doing a stint on the Saturday, I have got some lovely friends!
See you there!!
