Jessicah of Spinning a Yarn totally blew me out of the water with her awesome swap…gorgeous fibre for me to finally have a play on my spinning wheel, tim tams, and hot chocolate – yum!
The printed fabric it’s all sitting on is from In My Backyard – you can find her on felt, it is the cutest wee fabric print i’ve seen in ages.
I also had a great time meeting people on Saturday on the Frank Kitts market. It was wonderful to have real conversations with lovely knitters and crafters. I splurged on more fibre to play with – I just need to schedule in a day soon to sit down with the wheel and have a go. There are a few spinners around that seem ready to be talked into doing a central wellington spinning group, so let’s see if there is time to squeeze that into the schedule too.
Now i’m off to bed with my knitting – i’ve got the lurgy. Today should be a dyeing day but getting better is slightly higher on the priority list…have a great day!

Knitsch is going to be making appearances at a few places in the next two weeks:

Wonders of Wool
Frank Kitts Underground Carpark (underground = dry. yay!)
I’ll be there along with lots of other lovely yarny types, with Knitsch yarns – lots of limited editions, the new 12 ply, and stitch markers from the wonderful Supervery.
