So it was bank holiday weekend this weekend, which gave me a chance to do some more dying and spinning. Marie, Carmen and I had a lovely trip to Magor, despite that for some bizarre reason the shop we went to see was closed. So we went to Monmouth, a fabulous little town with a lovely little wool shop. We all brought something, and I couldn't resist some lovely Noro, although I can't remember the name of it, but it does have silk and cashmere in it.
Anyway with her Collinette Carmen made this:
Isn't it amazing???!!
I may try and coax the pattern out of her to post here, any interest?
So here is some (yes some!!!) of the dying and spinning I did over the weekend:

Here was some of the spinning:
And this which I am very very pleased with: Cashmere and merino smooth singles.
I just love this photo, on the left is my hand dyed sock yarn, it is sooooo soft!
Refer to the photo album for the rest!!
So I must thank Carmen for taking these pictures for me, I really appreciate it. I am desperate for a camera which will take adequate photo's, so here's my plan. I am going to save up by selling some of my fabulous products. I am starting to list some of them on eBay, if your interested here's the link:
