The new base yarn stock has arrived and so have the new dye colours so will be dyeing new colourways very soon. The weather for the next week is supposed to be cold and wet (we hope!) so drying may take a little longer but am excited to be trying out some new things soon!
My spinning/weaving/knitting/dyeing friend Clare and I are busy with the annual Wings Wheels & Whistles hobbies weekend which was on today (Saturday 4th) and tomorrow (Sunday 5th August 2018) from 10am to 4pm both days in Rudling Road, Pelham, Pietermaritzburg. This is a fabulous place to bring all the family to see hobbies of all descriptions - the highlight is, of course, the model train ride around the property. There will be spinning, weaving, lacemaking, woodworking (and the kids are allowed to do some serious hammering there!), quilting, leatherwork, semi-precious stones, stamp collecting, crafting of all descriptions and a huge collection of amazing models engines etc. The food is always great too.
The weather today was very hot with dry Berg winds which gusted up the dust badly as we have had no rain for ages. Tomorrow promises to be a bit cooler and hopefully no wind to make it a more pleasant day. Everything else was great as it is a wonderful meeting place for so many of our friends! Join us!
