After a difficult winter looking after my seriously ill husband I am now back into the throes of producing work.
Unfortunately I shall only be doing 2 shows this year at the moment, Upton Cross in August and 3Bags Full Liskeard in October, due to caring for my husband.
However I have been relaxing with spinning and knitting, photos to follow and have started natural dyeing now weather improving as biggest problem is getting yarn dry.
Waist coat is Handspun Shetland and Blue Face Leicester fleece, the dyed wool daffodils, onions, and dandelions.
I have treated myself a new wheel a Krominski Minstral, very fast and easy to use
This garment is knitted diagonally using Handspun merino, cashmere and silk.
There is a new magazine British Fibre Crafts out well worth a look.
I have also been doing some pin loom weaving on a 10 cm frame [ 4 inches] as it was very easy to carry to the hospital my husband was in as well as my knitting.
It is certainly true that fibre arts are stress relieving.
