Wool and Sewing

Less screaming from Eva last night so I didn't have to stay up knitting. Which is great, although she could do with a hat as it's cold and she is bald.
I finished reskeining a yarn order last night and it is ready to be sent. These are all kettle dyed, which is my favourite way of dyeing at the moment. So if you are going to the Sydney craft fair in a few weeks you will find it at Mosman Needlecraft. I think I am going try and replicate a few colours for myself over the weekend.

I have managed a little sewing in the past week. A new idea and a few blocks finished.

Wow -- those colors are gorgeous. I'm glad there was less screaming -- although you didn't say no screaming, so I hope it gets even better!

I'm not a big wool person but those little patches of fabric are starting to excite me. So pretty and neat. I wonder what you are making?

Glad to hear your getting more sleep. That wool is beautiful, it almost makes me want to start knitting again. I have heard good things about Mosman needlecraft. Your quilt blocks is looking very pretty too!

Your yarns look fabulous...there is a new shop in Brisbane that specialise in wool etc, take a peak she/you might want to have some of yours in there?

All those sock colors look gorgeous Kate. I dont mind the two on the top, when I am financial perhaps I will ask for some to be dyed if you have time.
