I don't just do hearts. I really like the flowers in a vase and have other ideas floating around in my head.

I had a good trip sooth and came back with a fine stash of brightly coloured fleece to spin and weave - and that's what I've been doing.
I like the vibrant colours. Does the scarf need some buttons added to the ends? If yes - which colour? I'll have to think about that one.
I have also been spinning some Art Yarn. The sample below is a combination of thick yarn with a low twist, thin yarn with a high twist and slubs.
The next project is to introduce some add-ins.
If you are interested in all things woolly then I recommend you visit the website http://www.woolfest.co.uk/ Woolfest is a celebration of natural fibres, especially all aspects of wool, wool products and wool crafts and is taking place just outside Cockermouth in
on Friday 22 and Saturday 23 June. I have wanted to go for a few years now and I am hopeful that 2012 will be the year. I'm getting excited about it already. It’s an area we know well having lived there many years ago. Must get the campsite book. Cumbria
Even if you don't plan to go the website contains details of the stall holders websites and blogs providing a couple of hours happy browsing time.
