I love primulas, they bring a welcome glow to the woodlands at this time of year
This tree is so vibrant it lights up the undergrowth
I also decided it was time to show you some of the shawls I have finished lately.
This one is a pattern called wingspan and is a fabulously simple design but looks stunning finished as I'm sure you will agree
Knitting Goddess and is her same difference yarn in the bumble bee colourway
I love the colour ways not just for the colour but for the unusual names both of the yarn bases and the colour ways. This is Dick yarn and the colourway is Stupid Boy. Why stupid boy? The colour way is lavenders, anyone remember Dads Army? Pike (Ian Lavender) was always called stupid boy by the captain:) It is refreshing to see a dyer with a sense of humour as well as a great sense of colour. Other yarn bases up to now are Tom, George, Cyril. I think you get the idea? Go and check them out, you wont be disappointed. I am looking forward to the fibre that they hope to have on sale soon. I particularly like that there will be repeatable colourways as well as one off colours.
This next shawl is Dragonfly wings pattern and made in Faery wings mohair/silk from Fyberspates. Isn't it lush?
I haven't made any resolutions as such but I do hope to blog more regularly as well as get back to creating fabric and paper art. And you never know maybe even some femmes.
