Strawberries and cream picot hat with flower
Tranquil picot hat with flower

Blues buzzbee hat with earflaps

60g of superwash british merino aran to go in the shop 50g of Blues superwash British merino aran to go in the shop
This organic merino aran called Potluck is also in the shop. It's not quite how I'd planned it, but I really like it.

I'm toying with the idea of offering some smaller skeins of organic merino (probably 50g) for hat knitters. i've got a few so might add some and see what the response is like.

The sun came out....

...and the wool (well some of it) is dry.

Chocolate Lime Teal



Pleated skirt and work in progress...

I finished this skirtie yesterday with elongated bell ruffles. I love how it looks, although each row did seem to take forever.

And this is a work in progress in my Pink Licorice colour.

Thanks to the lovely wet weather there is no wool to show off :( I have a bathroom full of wet sheepy stuff at the moment - I need to work on my husband selling his ancient landrover to get some undercover drying space outside I think!!

Hopefully tomorrow I will have something dry.

Hoodie and more wool

A hoodie I've made for my 8 month old niece

Katie wanted to try it on, it fits surprisingly well apart from the length LOL

More dyeing, a couple of customs with a green, blue, purple and black theme (actually lots of my dyeing recently has been on that theme) and something girly.
