a suitcase of yarn

I may not have knit a thing for several weeks, but that’s because I’ve been busy with other yarn things… dyeing up this lot!

It’s a suitcase o’ yarn!

Coming back from holiday last month I got all motivated and inspired, and I decided it was finally time to do something about my yarn dyeing plans.  Plus, spring time suddenly arrived with a bang, so it’s perfect timing to get skeins of yarn outside on the line to dry in the warm air.

I’m having a little travelknitter market stall at the Spitalfields Sheep and Wool Fayre at the Spitalfields City Farm on Sunday May 15th.  I’m probably about half-way prepared (still a few kilos left to dye) so I’m making good use of our endless bank holidays this month.  At this point I’m not sure if I’m more excited or terrified, but at the very least it will be fun I’m sure.  What’s not to love about an afternoon dedicated to everything sheepy?

If you’re in London on the 15th, please stop by to say hello!

  1. How exciting! I’ll take one of those blues off your hands when you’re ready (PayPal o.k.?). I only wish I could be there to support you in person too.

    p.s. will there be little magnetised fabric buttons? I now have a fridge that’ll do the job nicely 🙂


    • Oh yes, I’m ordering some more magnets specially! Little sheepy magnets are go. What sort of blues do you like? I did a whole heap more today. I’ll have to get some close up photos when I recover!


      • yay, magnets!

        I’m so jealous of your ability to comment on comments.

        I’d kill for an electric or royal blue, à la “cobalt over Mediterranean”. I think I see one peeking out of the case at me. I’m happy to wait for up close photos though.
