Squishy mail all the way from a new dyer in Ireland! I'm really looking forward to reviewing this yarn on my blog in a few weeks time, but couldn't resist showing a sneak peek of the STUNNING #plantdyed yarn!! This cotton linen blend is thick / thin in texture. *
From the dyer's Ravelry page: Hello! we are a husband & wife team dedicated to sourcing as close to home as possible, using 95% compostable packaging. We are Hand Dyers using natural materials to colour yarns and Fibres. Focusing on the natural dyeing, I collect many of my plant dyes around my immediate surroundings and my own garden. Of course, we only collect responsibly and many we cultivate ourselves, because we often need a lot more than nature can provide us with. Natural colours change - in different lights, after months and years, brilliant yellows will become tamer, dark indigo blues lighter… a beautiful and enjoyable journey of colour and time…I hope you enjoy our yarns and colour palettes. All our yarns, fibres and fabrics are natural and come from responsible sources - organic or oekotex standard whenever possible. All wool comes from museling free farms. @appleoakfibreworks
There may have been a wee #caston this morning...😏 Cable Cast-on and the lovely, squishy #hazelknitslivelydk "Havana" is bright n pretty this morning. 😊 It is very grey and rainy out, but thankful for that and the still green trees and plants outside. 🌳🌿🌺

J'ai fait le test de @soleneknits pour connaître mon animal totem du tricot. Je suis un bouquetin ! Pas trop surprenant quand on habite à la montagne 🐐
Je démarre ce soir le bonnet #ibexhat qui lui est associé.
Pour la laine, un petit reste de merinos de la @filature_du_valgaudemar et un souvenir ramené du Québec de chez #alpagascharlevoix#knit#instaknit#knitatwork#caston#animaltotemkal
Vous le voyez le futur châle dans les sublimes laines teintes par @c_laines_ ? Je vois un modèle de @wouimardis que j’ai déjà réalisé et que j’offrirais à une amie collègue qui m’a soutenue cette année #tricot#caston#jetricotedeschales
The itch to knit is definitely in the air! So many folks picked up yarn for new projects the past couple weekends.
Check out our newest “exquisite hand-dyed yarn” from @littlefoxyarn tomorrow, and you could cast on during Craft Club! (Every Sunday 3-5, 2nd and 4th Thursdays 5-7).
I cannot wait to knit with this gorgeous fiber!
#saturdaysockathon starts NOW! Finally starting my July socks 🙄😂🙈 Let’s see how far I can go during nap time! 🤞🏽 Yarn by : @the_lemonade_shop in the color-way : GUARDIANS 🍭🍭🍭 in her Mighty Sock base. #knitfromstash .
So I cast on my #comfortfadecardi the other night when my husband was out of time so he couldn't judge me for starting another project. I then hid it before he got home, which is ridiculous bc he really doesn't care. I guess I was judging myself. I want to finish this for @vogueknitlive San Francisco when I can help show off @earlgreyfibercompany killer dye skills. You'll be able to find us @blacksquirrelberkeley booth. We'll be the three women having the most fun.
I've been to Paris today, so I've brought some new stash acquisition. A book from Toshiyuki Shimada about Shetland lace.
Plus some yarn at @lil_weasel , @filcolana #pernilla for a blanket.
I will have to finish the caramel cardigan for my daughter at the top of the picture before to cast on the blanket.
