Between Fairs...

The last Saturday in February dawned chilly but dry and I headed off to St Abbs for what turned out to be the busiest Wool Festival there yet. We had lots of visitors who thoroughly enjoyed their day, as did I. My newest indigo products are these dyed wool batts, all carded and ready to be spun or felted. I was really pleased with how well they were received and am now on a mission to get a further supply ready for 14th March.

St Abbs is such a good venue for a family outing, enabling those that do to wander around the woolly goodness on offer, and those that don't to go off exploring the cliff walks and harbour and Number Four Gallery

And now my days till Edinburgh Yarn Festival are dwindling quickly... So much yarn and fibre still to dye, and some tarting up of display props to be done. 

My brand new knitting kits are all sorted and soon to be packed. I've chosen to use sturdy cotton canvas bags which I have indigo dyed, so they can be re-used for small projects. Each contains lovely smooth bamboo needles and not one but two patterns. 

Sorry, must dash... back to the dye-pot for another batch of blissful blue.
