Summer Holidays Week One

Spinners Weavers and Dyers is always a good evening. Teacher stole my poncho!

My sunflower and I popped over to Shrewsbury on the quest for a bit of Shilasdair which we found in
 the Market Hall Shrewsbury at Ewe & Ply, we also found some rather wonderful samosas which we may have stopped and scoffed on a bench on the way to our actual lunch date - in Shrewsbury we turn into veggies and in Oswestry we always turn vegan.

We found some fabulous screen printed linen.

It's in production in the studio but I've left on the printing markings.

I bought this walnut dyed lace weight alpaca from the British Wool show a couple of weeks ago and it's miraculously turned into a Vent d'est vent d'guest by Marie Adeline Boyer.

I also bought some pure wool British coned yarn from Riverside at the show which I knit up for my smallest assistant - the red wouldn't show up but it can be seen in the first photo - Cabled Poncho by the lovely ladies at Sheepfold, Sue and Alice.  This was just a little warm up,  I'm going to knit one for myself in some of my very own handspun Jacob.
