Wool jewelry and rainbow colors

We had such a wonderful time at the craft fair, it was terrific, and we will be attending again next time for sure!

 

People were very cheerful, and we met quite a few fellow handspinners and crocheters, it was so lovely chatting with them. One lady purchased a handspun yarn shortly before the fair closed for the night, and she returned with a most beautiful finished crochet scarf the very next morning. “I couldn´t wait, I just had to get my crochet hook out and work with that yarn while watching Harry Potter on TV” she said. She then went and also bought one of the 100m-project crochet hats I had made with the same yarn size and colourway. Dont these colors look fabulous on her?

 

 

I finished some new felt necklaces in rich rainbow shades, and there are also brown and gray versions in stock now embellished with shiny silk! They are displayed in my etsy store StoneCircleWools.

 

 

And there will be more hand dyed rovings, curly fleece and handspun yarns for my etsy store All The Pretty Fibers soon, please bear with me while I restock the yarns and fibers.

Everyone have a fantastic month of November. Keep it colorful!!

Yarn and fiber update

So the craft fair is drawing nearer, and most of the yarns are spun, painted, labeled and boxed. I am still fiddling with the textile labels I have to sew into my wool hats and scarves, it is time consuming, and I don´t like sewing very much.

I have not been neglecting my etsy store :o) There are now fresh yarns, rovings and batts  listed, have a look:

 

I also painted a new batch of extra soft british bluefaced leicester curly fleece for my dollmakers in a beautiful honey blonde shade. One of my customers sent me some photos of one of her miniature dolls, for which she used my painted reddish brown fleece. This little doll is truly adorable:

Everyone have a very fine summer season, and enjoy your wool projects!

December treats

Towards the end of the year I have painted a last December batch of 50/50 merino/silk rovings that are now displayed in my etsy store and a new crochet slouchy hat has come to life from my handpainted extra soft merino yarn “Amber Forest”. I have also sorted several bags of natural grey and handpainted wensleydale curls, 4 lots of drum carded merino/silk batts, also available on etsy  ,

 

 

Okay, that´s all for the rest of the year :o) Let me get back into my kitchen and try a new round of handmade Christmas cake….the first one exploded in the oven….nice….the second lot never rose….and the third one better be a well behaved and well baked cake, or else! I will also prepare a chestnut-chocolate mousse for 3.Advent Sunday, that should be an easy task…I think. Though I can´t promise that it will indeed make it to the family table, it is ever so delicious!! :o)

Everyone have a peaceful Christmas and a very happy and prosperous New Year!
