In my last post, you may have noticed some cute little guys on the table. I was delighted to be able to offer Dizzy Sheep spinning kits at Kendal at the weekend. In fact they proved so popular that my initial stock had sold out by lunchtime! Luckily my amazing friend Mandy dropped some more off on Sunday and I’ve now uploaded the remaining stock into the shop.
At last! A simple kit that allows you to separate out the steps involved in spinning. The Dizzy Sheep is great for beginners and experienced spinners alike, allowing you to spin on the go. Small and compact, Dizzy Sheep can be popped into a pencil case to take out and about. As you draft horizontally, it’s easy to spin sitting down with Dizzy. He even tells you which way to twizzle to spin or to ply!
We’re delighted to offer Dizzy Sheep, designed by Crafts From The Dungeon, for £16 or as a kit put together especially for Yarns From The Plain for £20.
The kit comes with everything you need to get spinning:
•One Dizzy Sheep raring to go
•50g of hand dyed British fibre
•Detailed photo tutorial.
They are currently available in 5 different hand dyed shades of Cheviot from here.
Well, I’ve just got back from Kendal Wool Gathering and I had a blast! It was brilliantly busy and had a real buzz about it. I was manning the stall on my own, so didn’t get to move away from it on Saturday. On Sunday though, a friend covered me for half an hour and I managed to slip into the Livestock marquee to have a quick coo at the sheep. I left my camera on the stand though, so didn’t take any pictures of the gorgeous little Ouissent sheep, which were small enough to pop into your pocket, not of the Herdwick ewe and lamb in the pen next door. Ah well! What I can show you is the stall – I got excited because I could put the banner up on the wall this weekend! Here it is on Saturday:
Here’s a wee close up on the Sunday. Can you see some new friends?
Well, I have to say it was a brilliant day down at the Harbour on Saturday! Aimee hosts a Saturday morning knit group at Harbour Yarns and it was great fun to sit with them and chat and to see their reaction to all the yarn and fibre. The pop up racks seemed to fill the shop but there was room to swing a cat, honestly!
I do love doing Trunk Shows at yarn shops. If you would like me to come to yours, get in touch!
