During an exceptionally quiet moment at the Spring show I volunteered to spin some fibre from the gorgeous Highland cows that were enjoying the attention of many visitors to their pen. I had the chance to stroke one or two of them and was surprised at how soft they were. Unfortunately the bag of fibre I was given was not so soft but undeterred I had a go. Suffice to say I ended up with hand spun string!
My first event this year is this weekend at the Hop Farm, Paddock Wood, Kent TN12 6PY. I will have all my dyed yarn as well as knitted items.
26th May will be Heathfield Show, TN21 8TH
30th June & 1st July is the Smallholders Show at Ardingly RH17 6TL
22nd July Blackstock Farm, Nr. Hailsham BN27 4HF
I will post more dates later on when I have confirmed my attendance.
Although I won’t be with Weald Crafts I will be at the Spring Show Ardingly 6th & 7th May.
A successful day at the show, spun lots of alpaca and chatted to lots of nice people. The wind howled around the marquee and hat wearing was out of the question. More of the same today I fear.
