Creations from my yarns!

I've been meaning to show off a few of the gorgeous creations some of my very creative customers have made from my yarns for some time now, so here it goes.... :D

A fellow UK Etsy seller, Sarah from SLC SLC has created several scarves using my yarns and they have since been visiting craft fairs with her, where she also sells really gorgeous hand printed and sewn clothing designs.

If you feel so inclined, you can even purchase this scarf, made from my banana fiesta yarn here. The main ingredient is organic falkland wool.

The second scarf has been knitted from one of my yarns naturally dyed with redwood. The scarf has a lovely texture and a sweet little flounce. :)
It is available for purchase here. Btw, the hand printed scarf next to it is also one of Sarah's creations. :)

Star decrease hat knitting pattern

Here is another pattern, just a simple hat with a nice looking decrease. :)

Ravelry link or you can download now

I've used it on a few hats, especially some of my handspun ones and it's always turned out nice and cuddly. :D

Venturing into knitting patterns

It has finally happened! I have been meaning to write and upload a few of my own knitting patterns for a while now and today I have finally taken the first step by uploading my very classic cabled wrist warmer pattern to Ravelry.
They are called 'Single cable wrist warmers', yeah, I'm original, haha. (Ravelry link)

...and it's all rather exciting! I've got a few more lined up, including freebies. :D

Most of them will be wrist warmers, with some other accessories thrown in - I'll have to take this slowly, lol.

Look what the postman brought!

My life is complete! I've now officially got it all. ;)

My order from world of wool arrived today and I couldn't be happier... this crazy excitement might make a little more sense if you knew that I haven't ordered ANY fibre since I moved back to the UK (Which is just over a year ago) - cynics might say it's strange that I didn't have to, because I had a nice little stash, but nevermind that! Either way, in this cute box is everything from milk protein to Cashmere/silk and I will start spinning up some Baby camel/silk right away. :D
