It has been an exciting few days. A visit to a friend in London necessitated a trip to Loop in Islington. I love this shop because it stocks little treasures that you often can't find anywhere else. You will see that I was tempted by the Isager Japansk Bomuld (cotton), a beautiful laceweight cotton with excellent metreage, (315 metres (344 yards)) and machine washable! Think i might take it on holiday to experiment with....... Second purchase of the week was the fantastic pouch that you see below. Made by Julia Billings of woollenflower from recycled Harris Tweed and lined with Scottish linen. Simple,stylish and superbly well made!
On Saturday I met up with Emma Price at In the Woolshed to talk through recent inspirations and future projects. The yarns featured in the photo are spun from Lleyni sheep and dyed naturally by Emma, really looking forward to working with this!
Finally a little taster of a commission that I would love to finish by the end of the week, but suspect will be coming on holiday with me!
