Three cheers for me, if you please.
Hip, hip, hooray! After working flat out on the new section of the website, it’s almost complete. The base yarn range is up, the dye page is up, and the tips page should be completed very soon.
Hip, hip, hooray! The Fir Cone Shawl is finally finished! And it’s simply enormous – 102″ along the wingspan, 34″ down the centre…… I had a bad few minutes near the end, when it looked like there wouldn’t be enough yarn, but I made it with about 10g to spare. It’s blocking now, so full details and photos later in the week.
Hip, hip, hooray! I’m ahead of myself for preparations for this week’s shop update. Mainly thanks to the new workshop, which speeded up the dyeing process to warp speed, and to the single sunny day of the year (it seems) which got all the yarn dry super quick.
I was planning on posting some photos of the yarn today, but it’s much too dark to photograph. It’s cold too – I’ve lit the woodstove! Anyway, photos of the yummy yarn tomorrow.
PS. Thanks for all the coffee advice, both here and on the other blog (yes, I know I need to get an RSS feed set up here, I just don’t know how, and my techie friend said he would do it, but he’s awfully busy and I don’t feel like I can pester, so if any of you are clever enough to do it, and it wouldn’t take you too long, and you could do it remotely or talk me through it, well, there would be cashmere treats involved…..). It turns out that we have a coffee factory in our town, just a little one, but they grind their own beans there, and you can go in and buy as much or as little as you want. So I’ll toddle along sometime and get their advice on my grind(and maybe some free tasters!).
