Saturday stands out as one of the best days of the year so far.

A morning filled with the Woolfish Wool Festival at St Abbs where I met Natalie from the Yarn Yard, the Bordertart and many other s that I’ve only ever heard of or spoke to through Ravelry.

After I bought the cutest little felted Alpaca from Cairndinnis Alpacas and a Diddy Niddy Noddy we left and headed north to The Haddington Spinners Open Day.

I’ve never seen so many spinning wheels in one room before, the most I’ve ever seen is erm…? one…! mine! lol 😀 ScottishFibres were there with their stall and I wanted to buy the new Ashford book of Dyeing plus they had another diddy niddy noddy which I wanted to buy but I didn’t have enough pennies on me so I’ll have to be patient til the next time I see them.

All in all it was a fibery, yarnish, tactile, squooshy, amazing Saturday that will tide me over til WoolFest in June…. I’m counting the days and keeping my eyes and ears open for other opportunities to get my fibre fix.

Next on the calendar… the Edinburgh Spinners Guild met on the 21st May 😀

In the picture we have Chocolate Cherries, Pebbles, Refresh and Pink Shadows. These are a few of my favourites that are in my shop just now.

I’ve set up a members only area,  that is quick and easy to register for, that will allow you to have sneak previews at any special colourways or updates on any new fibers that might be coming in. Members will also recieve the occasional newsletters by email and discount codes in the future.

On another side I’m love love love love loving this venture and I’m so glad that Jess at Dragonflair gave me the inspiration to get my bum moving and do something other than just thinking about it.

Many Thanks to all of the lovely ravellers and goddesses who have already signed up for my newsletter. Every time I get the email that says someone has signed up, I get a squishy feeling inside, kind of a combination of hugs and nerves 😀 huggy because somebody wants my newsletter and nervous because I’m not really sure what I’m gonna say in it yet 😀

Anyway, back to the dye pots for me.
