It may have been a bit quiet over here on the blog, but I’ve been busy behind the scenes. There’s bit a bit of dyeing, a bit of knitting, and quite a bit of yarn crawling!
Back in the summer, there was the Great London Yarn Crawl, set up as a fundraiser, that saw intrepid yarn hunters travel across London on various routes, searching out woolliness across the city. Unfortunately I couldn’t attend the event itself, but I set to work dyeing these little cuties for donation:
These are mini-skeins of my Camelsilk and Superwash Merino yarns. I’m not sure if they made it in to the goodie bags, or whether they were part of a door prize, but if you ended up with a little mini, please let me know! I love to hear where my babies end up.
Since then I’ve done a spot of travelling, and wherever I travel I have to search out yarn shops. Over the past little while I’ve been to Suffolk, Berlin, and Paris, so expect travelknitter guides coming up soon.
In the meantime, if you’re in London I can highly recommend the fab E17 Designers Market, in the lovely Walthamstow village. If you’re not familiar with the area, it’s walking distance from Walthamstow Central tube, on the speedy Victoria Line. I’ll be there on Saturday from 2pm to 6pm selling travelknitter yarns, of course, and stocking up on a few chrissy gifts.
It’s the perfect opportunity to do some shopping for handmade gifts while having a lovely mulled wine at the same time. Sounds like a great Saturday afternoon to me. See you there!
