I have re-warped my loom for the first time this year. This time I’ve also pre-wound bobbins to cut down on stop-start weaving. I’m loving how it’s starting to look. There’s definitely perks when your an indie dyer 🌈
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? 🌈
I’m so grateful that my day job allows me to occasionally get out and about. This time around it was around Rother Valley park. The sun hung low in the sky and everything seemed to move so slowly. Peaceful. The highlight of the morning was being followed by a swan cygnet, who was pretending to be so shy.
So this past seven days have flown by again. Just today I made a little detour after work to say hi to a pack of Alpacas I had spotted earlier. I was so excited! The photo isn’t great but there was quite a few of them, they belong to a community group promoting self-sufficiency who are adjacent to a large number of vegetable allotments. I have cast on my first sock (for boxosoxkal) and I’m at the start of the heel tonight but I’m waiting on a set of DPNs to arrive through the post (so prob start on my 2nd fair isle mitten). I have listed my ‘Fantastic Mrs Fox’ yarn and DK ‘Rose Garden’ I have a few more (bottom right photo) to list but I might be tempted to try weaving some of those …
Have you cast on recently? 🌈🦄
I’m finally getting around to casting on for my own boxosox knit along. I’m using Addi Turbo 2.5mm and indie hand dyed Merino sock yarn with nylon (which is available in my etsy shop: HERE) I’m starting off with Winwick Mum (on Ravelry) basic sock pattern which is available HERE. You’ll find lots of photos and help at every stage through the links on her blog.
Are you joining in with a KAL this year? 🌈🦄
I also just added this sock yarn today, inspired by a magical iridescence:
