More yarn....

....colourful thick and thin lightly fulled yarn.

Crafting, sharing, spinning day...

Recently I put out an invitation for visitors to come and craft, spin etc. at the farm studio. So thanks to Wendy, Shirley, Dawn and Margaret, we had a lovely day sitting in the shade of the apple trees spinning and knitting, and talking about our ideas and plans for our craft. Wendy wants some of my handspun hand dyed fulled yarn that I have been working on, so have to get some more done for her shop in Rushworth. After spinning, dyeing comes in a close second, because you can plan your colours, but you don't necessarily know what the final result can be. Too busy chatting, so unfortunately no photos of the day. But photos soon of some more of the new yarns.

Mooroopna Farmers Market...

...was recently set up late last year, and after enquiries I am going to be there, this Sunday, March 20th.
I am working on a few projects at the moment.

I am currently spinning some hand dyed blended wool yarn for Rushwool Knit & Yarn,

spinning some Tan Alpaca fleece for sales, some grey Alpaca for a client.

A yellow hand knit scarf and a machine knit carf have also been completed.

A Garter and dropstitch shawl from hand dyed thick and thin yarn also finished. My oldest daughter is the model, and shows it off quite well. I manged to get her to model our new North East Yarns jumper, which looks really great on her.

And some hand dyeing of natural white wool yarn.

Looking forward....

....to a pleasant day tomorrow.

It is Nagambie's Saturday Market, and since the weather has been a bit horrendous lately, hoping for a good day.

Extra items have been added to the stall, including this Handspun Fawn Alpaca.
