I was surprisingly frugal at the Woolfest (see previous post) even though I had taken quite a bit of cash. I did nearly buy a wonderful recycled sweater made from several other sweaters, but had one of those "I could make this myself" moments and now I will have to try to make this thought good.
I bought ...
A hank of natural undyed wool from a bargain basket. Contemplating knitting this into a little dog.
A bag of angora fluff from Toblerone, the chocolate-eared bunny. It's so soft, like wisps of smoke.
Two bags of natural dyed rough fleece. May be brooches, may not.
A fabulous book on simple, natural dyeing from stuff you already have in the kitchen or garden. I'm "dyeing" to get started but so many other things need doing first.
I loved these items made by such talented crafters. I should have noted who they were to acknowledge the images but forgot, so I hope they don't mind a bit of anonymous publicity...
Beautiful crocheted hats
Beautiful felted hats and vases
Beautiful knitted and felted scarves
And to finish ...
One week on from "Knit in Public" Day, I managed to do so on the train coming home. I didn't stab anyone with the needles although I did accidentally prod a sleeping Japanese gentleman sitting next to me. He didn't wake up, luckily!
