I had a very enjoyable day at the Creative Fibre Festival "Twist in Thames" on Saturday which was open day.
Met up with lots of friends and spent money I shouldn't have on stash enhancement. While there a friend suggested I should post on the blog more often so I'll try but I do like to know someone is out there reading it!
First off I should have mentioned that the hat shown here knitted from thrums sold at the Whangamata market. Of course the buyers husband said, why do you want to buy that, you can knit yourself, and the lady rightly replied yes, but I could never get the colours. It was hand dyed many shades and tints of a wedgewood blue with bits of quarry grey and dashes of white where the warps had been tied all adding up to a great combination.
I've got myself into a bit of a corner this week in that three looms have to be threaded. Hopefully Tuesday or Wednesday the computer box for my dobby will be delivered and installed which meant I had to have a 16 shaft threading on the loom to test it.
