I added a couple new skeins to my shop this week; Hang Ten and Earth Mother. Click on the pictures to be taken to their listing.
I was also very excited because I was the Wool Judge for their Fleece Show. We had 13 entries in Medium/Down wools, Long wools and Speciality wools. Surprisingly nothing in the fine category. I saw GORGEOUS coloured fleeces from jet black, to grey and soft browns. The first place winners were Shetland/Texel (Speciality), Wensleydale (Long) and a Polypay/Romney cross (Medium/Down).
This is a picture of me with the Grand Champion Fleece with a score of 97% - Wensleydale and the Reserve Champion Fleece with a score of 95.5% - Coloured Cotswold. This Cotswold fleece was the most popular in the auction.
Thank you to Gail and Susan who organized the event, Val for the delicious pies and to everyone who came out! I hope to see you all very soon!
I have been working on spindling the kit I got from Spin Off Magazine. The project I have in mind is the FFSSA Sheep and Spindle Fair Isle Hat by Theresa Gygi I've finished with the Falkland on my Bosworth spindle and for the first time was successful with Andean plying. Yes, my middle finger turned purple but i was proud of myself for winding all the yarn off and into a bracelet with no tangles or any issues at all. After plying I got 129 yards of fingering weight yarn. Onto the Yak which I am going to use my Malcolm FIelding Dervish for. More pics to come!
