I have been super busy putting out Lap blanket kits, handspun "lopi style" yarn and (so exciting) our new line of hand dyed sock yarn.
It has taken me FOREVER to find a sock yarn that I wanted to dye "en mass", this because I'm you're basic sock yarn snob. Long story short I found my true love and have been dyeing it steadily since it's arrival. I would love to give you a look but apparently my camera needs a new memory stick because my recent pics have gone MIA.
....much more news to come as well I will leave you with this: THINK COLOUR KNITTING
from striped scarves to Estonian socks to fair isle sweaters, the choice is yours during our upcoming ** WiNtEr KnIt AlOnG** ...starts in January..YAY!
..lots of support, tips, tricks and video sessions on jacquard, stranding, two handed knitting and more!

On the topic of rug hookers being all around great folks (and me being very behind in my postings) I want to send a big THANK YOU to Lauri who named London-Wul to her "BLOGGER AWARD" list. Lauri is indeed a rug hooker, an on-line community builder and (YAY!) a new spinner as well. Feel free to visit her blog at Threads of Miz.
This vote of encouragement actually came along several month ago at a time when I had just lost my dad and was more than a little in need of a pick-me-up. Thanks again Lauri. You remind us all what a great gift it is to simply say to someone "I like what you do".
Also in September, we hosted a wonderful dye workshop with instructor Joanna Close. Joanna taught colour theory, natural and commercial dye techniques. For more information on Joanna check out our listing of further workshops (right sidebar).And of course, September had its share of animal adventures as well. Freddy the peacock decided to vacation for several dramatically stormy days as we nervously awaited his return.
