However this one will work in conjunction with my simplicity blog, downshifterdiary where you can find out about our adventures in lifestyle and simple living.
Anyway, today I have been dyeing hanks of yarn for an order. 40 hanks of yarn, actually so I have been in yarn heaven all day. 20 hanks of laceweight and 20 hanks of sock yarn. Now I wish I could knit with all those lovely colours, but need to finish the shawl I am doing out of 7 small shawls to knit by Romi . This is a fabulous booklet and the patterns have been thoroughly tested. I have not found any errors in the one I am knitting.
The laceweight and sock yarn are for sale on my website http://www.createwithfibre.co.uk .
just while I remember, here are some photos from our class 'Improve Your Spinning' at the Association of Weavers Spinners & Dyers summer school in August 2011.
