Publishing delays...Too much work !

I'm very busy at the moment getting yarns & fibre ready for the next trade show so i'm unable to work on the next giveaway just yet. Apart from that i have to finish writing up 2 patterns that my lovely customers have been patiently waiting for for a few months now !

The show we are processing Shetland yarns for is the Picton Fibre Fest in Prince Edward County Ontario, Canada. The date of the show is Saturday 27th May 2017. This is the 1st organised show & it should be a fun day with lots of other fibre booth's taking part.

We will have all our usual assortment of Shetland wool yarns & Rovings along with pure qiviut yarns, raw musk ox fibre, Qiviut yarn blends & knitting patterns. And Shetland wool batting. Planning on having some ready knit Qiviut scarves too as there will be non-knitters in attendance.
here is a link to the fibre fest

I will be staying at the Claramont inn for the weekend Really beautiful hotel Spa having a much needed break !

I finally got the yarns spun for the next shawl/pattern giveaway.....its beautiful & the colour reminds me of a ball of Vicuna i have in my stash !
This will be used to make my new design 'Autumn Glow Stole'
A gorgeous lace weight yarn that should show the travelling eyelet lace pattern really well.

Winters Journey scarf is complete & I'm writing up the pattern soon.

Winner of the yarns, Pattern & Shawl pin from last month was Anastasia with her entry : Winters Journey. Thank you Anastasia here at the cottage we all love the name.

more to follow !

Mioget shawl Giveaway for August/September 2017

Mioget Shawl

Been a very busy Spring & Summer around here......Lots of lambs-96 in total alive & well. They are everywhere i look. Some days i have so much work i don't know what job to tackle first.....thank goodness  i have a very understanding husband who loves the Sheep just as much as i do. Not to mention a family who are now city folk but love to come to the country side for weekends away.....& don't mind singing for their supper ! Before long most of the lambs will be gone, they are all sold & my work schedule will be greatly reduced....roll on !

Managed to finish a few of my UFO's lately & I'm very happy they are complete so i can move onto my next ''knitting with purpose'' project, more about that in the next blog later in the year. Oh and my NEW OUT♥LANDER inspired yarns (90% Shetland wool-10% Qiviut-musk oxen) big 150 gram skeins, will be off the machines in only a few days.....more about that in a week or so.
