I bought some new woollie this weekend and in another exciting crafting development a parcel of fabric arrived from Z & S Fabrics. The fabric was purchased following a number of recommendations on the blogs of others and mention of a sale. I would recommend the company highly, the service was swift and the prices good and the postage a set $11 for 4.5 yards of fabric - which cost me a total of $23. I love the Heather Ross fabric for , Freespirit - the patterns are quirky and fit perfectly with my personality (not quite grown up) and the fabric feels fantastic. More in a later post of what I plan for the fabric.
Saturday was knitting group at Twist Fibre Craft over in Newburgh. As usual the event was enjoyed by all and much shopping was done - Laura and Peter do so much to inspire that it is hard to leave without a purchase.
This time I bought some Lopi roving so that I could make a felt bowl from Nicky Epstein's new book "Knitting never felt better" and 3 balls of Rowan Harris Tweed DK yarn that was found in the sale box......there was so much yarn in the sale box that at one point someone recommended tying a rope round my foot so that I could be pulled out once I had dived in.......
With the yarn from the sale box I want to experiment a little with the shibori style techniques in the book by making something simple like a scarf.
