Spring Fair prep …

Both me and my sister are doing a spring fair in March so my knitting projects have taken a backseat to my weaving. I have lots of new yarns dyed up to but I’ll be adding them after the fair! I have been weaving much more recently and have decided to upgrade to a sectional warp beam set up on my loom. More about that another day. I’ll be posting some photos of the stall set up as I have a nice wooden table top rail I can’t wait to use/see with my scarves on it.

Are you doing any craft fairs this year?


Keeping a note …

I’m sure everyone has their preferred method of keeping track of the length of the weave but thought I might share mine. I use embroidery floss bobbins to write the current length on and weave it in, but keep removing/changing the length as you proceed.

How do you keep track of the work length?

Arriving this week …

A few new colourways in my Etsy shop. I can’t get enough of these yarns, my own stash is growing rapidly. I finally received my DPNs in the post so I can continue with my sock knitting.

Also today I’ve been busy hand printing some new project tote bags, watch this space.

I wanted to share a snap of how the weaving is looking and how many colours appear in the yarn as the colours merge from one to the next constantly evolving ❤️ 🌈

Weekly Collage no.4

The last seven days have been a steady flow of dying and weaving. From top left clockwise; my eco-friendly packaging, hand dyed DK blank featuring the logo I designed this week, I warped up my little loom again to weave some of the hand dyed DK, last photo shows the handspun I listed too.

I’m excited to share some more of my logo designs I’ve been working on for stickers/packaging:

Have you had a productive or adventurous week? 🌈
