Please like me

I can't believe time has gone so quickly, but my brain has definitley hit near explosion as I try to get to grips with a new Folksy shop, facebook and stumbleupon.  I'm loving and hating them all in equal measure and spending my days running to check if any more people liked me than five minutes ago.  If I get 25 likes I can do something special, which I haven't worked out yet.

So, if you're passing facebook or folksy, please give my page the once over.  Just think how happy you will make this little sad spinner.  If I can post a link I will.  Just give me a few weeks to work it out.

I'm at Clitheroe castle this weekend, thats the 7th for Sheepfest which sounds like it's good fun.  The town dress up sheep, cardboard ones that is (perhaps real ones too but lets leave that there).

I think this is from one of the local schools.  Bowland Wool will have their own sheep that Rosemary is decorating.  I'll take a photo and post it next time.  It's all very strange.

I'll be selling my handspun wool and also fibres but I also have some lovely knitting needle boxes as well as some kits of my own and also from Bowland Wool.  If theres any room at the table I might even take my wheel so brave people can have a go.

I was interested to see Knit on the Net has been relaunched.  For any who don't know, its on online UK knitting zine which has been published quarterly for a few years now.  Although they are now charging for the patterns they feature, there are archived patterns, which include a few of ours for you to download.

This summer vest is entitled Looby Loo and is knitted from handspun silk.

And this chunky beret, D'arcy Spice is in our Eliza yarn, which is still available now.

Hopefully see you at Clitheroe. (There's a fab sausage shop there too, as if you needed more incentives) x

I have spun some of your fibre Cathy and it is really lovely. I have posted pics on Ravelry on UK spinners forum.
