My 3rd parcel arrived yesterday while I was out at work. I’m sooo happy, squeeeeeee!
It’s 113g of Wensleydale top from www.skeinyarns.etsy.com . I fell in love because of the beautiful colours and also because the fibre is Wensleydale, we had many a wonderful day out in Wensleydale and the Wensleydale sheep are super cute.
All I have to do now is find me a drop spindle and have a go. I was hoping to start a beginners spinning course this weekend with the Handweavers and spinners guild but they are full so I shall have to wait patiently till October for the next one.
In the meantime, I have booked next week off work so I can knit to my heart’s content and hopefully explore some yarny and handmade shops around Melbourne. Hopefully I can pick up a drop spindle and some advice and some ingredients to start my dyeing adventures, I also need some fat quarters to play at making buttons. So many lovely crafts, so little time. My main mission though is to complete Ian’s socks and my clapotis so that I can begin to make progress on my two neglected cardigans and get to wear them before Summer hits us.
Hope you have a fibrelicious weekend x
