FIRE! - Elements club

This season I was inspired by the warm toned flames of the fire WITH the contrast of the darkened ash colours and the flickr of blue purple in the flames.

Each ball is GENTLY toning and move effortlessly from one colour to the next.

This colourway can be used for any project that uses 2 contrasting balls such as a fun colour study or the balls can be used seperately.

Happy knitting everyone!

Yarns at the national quilt festival.

Hi there,

A big thank you to all of you that came to visit my stall at the national quilters expo. The expo was a wonderful experience and I enjoyed meeting all the wonderful knitters, spinners, quilters and fibre fans. :)

Dana and I ran a lucky draw, and the prize was a collection of yarns from both of our studios, 11 balls = 650g of yarn!

The winner was drawn on the last day, as is Mrs Williamson of Harbebeesport. Congratulations your package will be in the post to you early next week.

Im finalising some info on the patterns that I need to send out, please bear with me, it has been a very busy week. thanks...

AND remember that next week is the Sock knitting course @ spinknits in the waterfront. - more info to follow. Please email me if you are eager to attend.
