Stitches West 2012

My booty from Stitches

Every February the Stitches West show comes to town – I always warn my family weeks in advance that it is my day out dedicated to my favourite craft. What perfect timing it was too as I really enjoyed my time immensely as I ended up catching up with my knitting pal and we wandered the aisles finding new and exciting yarn related crafts as well as finding yarn (of course!) So in the near future I am going to try my hand at wet felting, we shall see how that goes – this is how I plan to use it. I cannot wait but I have to find a big block of time to dedicate to this project – the rust coloured roving in this pic is cashmere that I bought from a lovely lady from Portland. And I couldn’t leave stitches without a skein of Madeleinetosh. Oh and there is an undyed skein of yarn too which is another dying project – thought I still have to track some some natural dyes down or even collect my onion skins to make that one.
