busy, busy, busy ...

well, i've been busy shopping and now have lots of new fibre to play with thanks to a visit to twist fibres, if you are within 100 miles of this shop you should pay a visit - it's an aladdin's cave full of temptation and peter and laura are really lovely and helpful, as is everyone who works here :)

while i was there i also picked up some natural dyes so, thanks to some help from this great book, i'm going to start experimenting.

and then there's the falkland wool which i'll be trying for the first time, instead of the merino i usually use. oh and also some yarns to practise weaving.

so, i think i'll be busy for a while but will hopefully return with lots of pics of new work to share!

What fun goodies to play with! Thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving a comment. I also love your tulip photos. I can't ever grow any because they get eaten by the deer every time!
