Entering the Royal Hobart Show

Have you ever visited your local show and viewed the knitted, felted, crocheted, hand spun and hand dyed items and thought I can do that or I would like to enter.  Well you too can enter. It is not a secret society or elves in the cupboard producing these items.  It is ordinary men and women who have put some time aside to showcase and improve their crafting. I have previously bitten the bullet and entered, my heart was in my mouth when I put my entry in, but I won a prize and received a highly commended. I was totally stoked.  These show events will pass away if people do not enter. So I urge you to think about entering,...

Knit Nite - April 5

Knitters who came to our March Knit Night asked for it to be a regular occurrence.  Well here it is.

PLY Magazine, Free postage in Australia. What is in each issue

This blog will record what is in each ply issue from Issue 15 and I will add earlier issues as I find time.  Free postage to customers in Australia Issue 16  DOWN (-like)  is all about down (non wool sheep) Down and down-like breeds are a bit of a dirty word in the handspinning world, but we think it’s time to change that. This issue will convince handspinners everywhere that these sheep are for more than meat – they can make darn good yarn! Don’t know what a Down is? Deb Robson will change that right away and then other fantastic spinners will tell you how Downs differ when it comes to spinning, processing, and dyeing Wonder if there’s any difference...

Knitting/Crochet and crafting around the state

The months of February, March and April have seen a number of group visits to Hobart by knitters and crafters.  February was the quilting and crafting fair at the Derwent Entertainment Centre. My meander out to the event saw purchases at Prudence Mapstone's store and the Lucky Ewe.  Fell in love with Rowena's dyeing and I will be trying to convince her to let me stock her hand dyed yarn.  March was the Bothwell SpinIn and Tassie Yarn Ramble. This was my first visit and also the first stall that I have had. Kim and I had a lot of fun and met some lovely people. I am going to trial some of Jan Ditchfield's lovely hand dyed merino scarves,...
