Sunshine means photos!

Last Saturday I went to Get Knitted for a dyeing workshop with Jeni of Fyberspates and I have to say I had a wonderful day and brought home some hand dyed yarn I am proud of. I may have also managed to spend some money in Get Knitted, well they give you a 10% off voucher for attending the workshop and I needed to get the most out of my petrol getting there (that's my story and I'm sticking to it).

This is the yarn I dyed:

This is the stash I bought, I was quite restraint on the yarn front with a ball of Trekking Pro Natura (the red), which I have to say if I'd have know how nice it was and that it had bamboo in it I would have bought more of, a ball of Opal Uni and two skeins of Lorna's Laces in Bittersweet.

I also got Interweave Knits, two Amy Butler sewing patterns, some Amy Butler Fabric, some notions, and another set of Knit Picks Circular needles in 2.25mm.

I also realise that I haven't taken a picture of my spinning wheel, which it seems should have a name, any suggestions gratefully accepted. Tomorrow I am off for a little spinning tuition, which I could do with.

This picture is just because, I collect things with sheep on and did long before I moved to Wales or began knitting, it's fate I tell you. I've had this a long time and it's got to be one of my favourite things. It just makes me happy to look at it! It was a present from my Mum, doesn't she have good taste?

I was going to post this evening but quite frankly after the day I had in work I have little chance of making my brain work long enough to manage it.

TTFN, back soon!
