I've been working on this gorgeous Dorset button today after an amazing workshop with last weekend at the retreat. Using the yarn left over from my Autumn weaver fever box this will be a perfect addition to my Autumn nature table next year.
Brrr. The mornings are beginning to feel a bit nippy! Time to start admitting that there's a new season on the way. I absolutely love Autumn colours so I've indulged a little bit lately - aren't they gorgeous? They'll be plenty of these at Yarndale if you need cosy Autumn yarn.
What colour do you choose for a chameleon? There's a whole lot of gorgeousness happening over at this week as they celebrate being 10 with a gorgeous range of hand dyed yarns - including my contribution here. Have you chosen yet?
It's a proper winters day here. Wet. Grey. And everything looking ( and feeling) very sorry for itself. So time to cosy up and chose yarn favourites - like this Fairies Rainbow. It works so well on this single ply base all wiggly and squishy and looks gorgeous when it's worked up with flashes of colour - just what we need today!
Autumn is creeping in. These misty mornings are beginning to feel a bit too chilly for flip flops I don't think it's going to be long until I have find my shoes again. Which means hand knit socks. I'm thinking sunshine socks might be just what I need to ease into autumn what do you think?
One of my favourite things about yarn club is that I can do really special things for my lovely club members. Last month they all had a treat with this custom spun yak/bamboo blend. The softest drapiest yarn you ever felt. There's still time to join yarn club for next month link in profile.
This was one of the last skeins of yarn I dyed before we came away. I was testing the dyes in the yarn kits just seeing what's possible. I love these bright greens and red - like a parrot! The kits contain everything you need to dye your own yarn and create a beautiful one of a kind skein of yarn for a special project. Link in profile.
