Wow, what a month of love. I hope you have been having a lovely month.
At the end of January, Tom and I went away for a long weekend to Budapest which was a lot of fun. It is a beautiful city and the architecture is amazing, if you haven't been yet, I totally recommend it.
We did a lot of exploring around the city and tourist stuff like getting the hop on hop off bus and going around the city about 100 times. According to my fitbit we had walked 36km around the city in three long days. It did explain why my feet hurt by the time I was home.
We tried some local cuisine like the chimney cake and langos, we even tried some of their stews. The langos were amazing, it was deep fried dough with a topping of sorts, I had bolognese and cheese on mine :)
As soon as we were back, I was preparing for the craft fair at the Makers Bazaar sale market. It was my first stall all by myself, normally I team up with Knitwear For All Seasons which is mostly ran by my Aunt with some makes made by my Nan and Mum.
It was very successful event and I got to meet some of you lovely people which I thoroughly enjoyed.
Just look at that rainbow of yarn!!
New Pattern Release
Shortly after this lovely event I released my first ever pattern.
This is the Silver Echo Shawl which was made using Fibre Fox's Rainbow reflections yarn and also my Silver Fern yarn, all in 4ply yarn.
I was lucky enough to have some lovely people test the pattern for me and with their comments I feel I was able to provide a good final version of the pattern.
The Silver Echo Shawl pattern is available on my website, if you would like your own copy.
If you do get a copy and have any questions, please feel free to get in touch.
Spring Yarn Box
The other exciting news this month is that the Spring Yarn Boxes are now available.
I have been planning this for a little while and I have found some lovely images for inspiration. Think spring flowers if you are wanting an idea of some of the colour ways. These colours are also limited edition and will not be re-dyed for at least six months.
The specific colours will be kept top secret until I have sent out the boxes, but I will share some images of the colours around late Sunday 22nd on my social media. This means that if you wanted to get a yarn loving mum some yarn, these would make a great gift idea.
You can select either 4ply or DK 20g minis, but be quick as there are a limited number of these boxes available.
I don't really have many more plans for the rest of the month, other than finishing off the lovely colour ways for the Spring Yarn Boxes.
Do you have any colour ways or things you would like to see from my site?
Please do get in touch.
