I just spent the weekend playing with a whole hall-full of fibre! Wingham Wool Work visited Berkshire yesterday and today to run a taster session and I went along with friend Jan. For a small entry fee, visitors have the chance to bring their wheels and sample all of Wingham’s great fibres: try-before-you-buy. I’ve only just got home so I will offer photos and details of all the things I spun samples of over the next day or so.

So many ideas, so many things I could spin, tutorials to write, dyeing to do… I tried setting a budget but failed miserably of course. More later :-D

In the meantime, here’s a pic of a very fun project. (Underlining reminds me that I’m really enjoying it. Really.) One is done, the next isn’t quite cast on yet but I promise it will be. I have never suffered second sock syndrome yet, and don’t intend to start now. Anyway - I am truly enjoying this knit (most of the time).


ETA for Lucy: The pattern is the Bayerische Socks from Eunny Jang’s website.

    that is absolutely beautiful! Is there a pattern I can hand to my knitting husband so he can have _lots_ of fun and make them for me?

    Those are gorgeous, very knit-intensive! Good Job and thank you for sharing them with us!

    Sock is out of this world. But as well as seeing the second one I am longing to hear in detail about the fibre at the Woolfest. Life can be really good sometimes.

    Beautiful Bayerische. Love all of your spinny stuff too. I’m too afraid to learn to spin - I don’t have room for a yarn stash AND a fibre stash.
