I am happy to be one of the coordinators of this year's Fat Goose Craft Fair. It's a great little indie sale here in Kingston, and we are currently accepting applications from vendors! Find the application details here, and don't forget to check the Rules, Regulations and Rhubarbs!

and yarn...

As promised, photos of new yarns created with fibre dyed and documented in my last post. Approximately worsted weight, slightly thick and thin. Hoping to have these up for sale in my etsy shop soon.

In the dyepot this week...

Here are some photos from a dye session I did a couple of days ago. I am very happy with the colourways I achieved, even if they are different from what I had in mind!

You can see just how low-tech my kettle dyeing set-up is. Complete with wood that needs splitting in the background.

A close-up of a swampy green colour combo.

An autumny colourway inadvertently matching a mohair blanket on my porch

And a new (for me) variation on one of my favourite blends of colour, yellow and grey.

I have done a bunch of spinning already and am excited to share photos here tomorrow. For those of you in Kingston I will be selling yarn today and subsequent Thursdays, 12-3:30, at the market at Mulberry Waldorf School.
