I can't believe it's been 2 weeks since my last post- where does it go?! As a result this is a picture-intensive post - you have been warned!
Yesterday we took a trip over to Trago Mills at Falmouth and had a great couple of hours despite the rain.
Trago Mills is the most amazing store - a rabbit warren full of everything. I managed to get hold of a pair of bag handles - and some beads which were 59p per tube! I resisted the yarn on this trip..
Today we went to the open day at Llama Lland, just 5 minutes drive from us.
Here I am with my rapidly-growing DDs - see there are llamas behind us!
Note the wellies and coats - just what you need for this great British summer we're having.
Here's one of the ones in the pens - can't remember the names..
And here's a beautifully-coloured llama - showing off it's better side?!
I bought 2 bags of llama fibre, as I really fancy buying a drop spindle and having a little play at spinning some of it. Any tips anyone?
I also bought a 64g skein of hand-dyed handspun llama wool for £2!
I've been having another go at dyeing myself, and did these skeins on Friday.
There are 5 skeins of laceweight cashmere - soooo soft!
Also a couple of skeins of sock yarn - I played around to get some pretty good bark-like shades!
Oh yes and knitting.
The Wedding Bolero is progressing well - I can tell as my hands are starting to ache.
Both sleeves are finished and blocked, and the back is almost done too - should be finished tonight I reckon. Just a couple of small shaped fronts after that, plus an edging and beads. I'm really pleased so far.
