Time to cast on yet another project - my colour choices for a @westknits Exploration Station. Mostly @wrenandollie yarn, and pulled from the stash 😱 Feeling like a very virtuous knitter right now 🙏 #australianknitters #explorationstation #wrenandollie #fishermansribyarn

knitting up another shawl sample to test out my new merino fingering weight base. I fancy working up a series of faded and aged looking neutral colourways such as this for this base. Soft - tick, squishy- tick... pretty happy with that!

My not perfect, but still lovely, Birds of a Feather shawl by @dreareneeknits Such a beautiful pattern, I really need to give this another go! So happy with the pretty colour combination of @fishermansrib lush yarn. Made for my daughters 13th birthday ☁️🐑🌿 💛#birdsofafeathershawl #fishermansribyarn #andreamowry #dreareneeknits #handdyedyarn #practicemakesperfect #knittedshawl #handknit #handknitgifts #shawlknitting #slowfashion

If you are in Sydney town you may like to pop into Skein Sisters and make a selection... there is so much yarn to tempt you there...

Today was one of those days that just hopped from joy to joy. I spent a couple of lovely hours with a wise and special friend as I was winding my way down south to go on to enjoy a lovely and entertaining evening with @annamariahorner at her Busselton lecture. When I finally reunited with my phone I found a very humbling post from @skeinsisters letting their customers know of my selection as their indi-dyer for July. Thank you for being just so kind ☺️. While I am not a hugely prolific dyer I do so appreciate this association with a LYS as they are very important community hubs fostering emerging talents, enabling friendships, feeding the imagination and assisting above and beyond. Thank you.
For the girls in Sydney who have been requesting a next update please take the time to visit Skein Sisters as they have a good selection of my yarn available, including those pictured.

I have been working up this sample of the @looplondonloves ‘tiny tassels’ pattern using 1 skein of ‘wild at heart’ etching lush and a slightly contrasting mini for the tassels. This sample has traveled well to date and suffered accordingly with little errors as I lost concentration. It also entertained a young man on my return flight from Bali... he was so fascinated by the ‘knitting‘ process having never seen someone knit before and asked question after question about ‘string’ and technique.
I have made up some little kits that will be traveling down to @cotton_rose1 later this week with a new selection of yarns to top up Tanya’s offering of FR yarn also in tow.

Not doing the best job with the camera here, but I think you will get the gist. My take on ‘a girl’s best friend’ by @lilalu72 but thought tassels instead of pompoms as I wanted to keep the colour play happening.
I really am getting my wriggle on to get the shop restocked... another week of dyeing yarn just for the shop now as all of my other commitments are now complete. I will keep you posted as to where you can get kits for this baby as they become available

Just the sweetest day in the studio today. Soft drenching rain, great music and new colourways evolving under hand.

When it comes to colour, I don’t do minimalist... actually - I don’t do minimalist full stop! New unnamed shades playing with ‘my favourite lipstick’ and ‘secondhand bricks’ and some stitched love

Finally got around to photographing my very first knitted shawl! Pattern is Daylight Fading’ by @kniftyknittings which was the perfect beginner pattern for me 💛 The beautiful yarn is mainly by @fishermansrib with the blue in the centre by Ella Rae yarns 🐑 I am barely taking this off now autumn has well & truly hit 🍂 🌧🕯🐑💛 #fishermansribyarn #ellaraeyarn #kniftyknittings #daylightfadingshawl #daylightfading #autumnlight #handdyedyarn #handdyedinaustralia #handknit #handknitting #sockyarn #shawl #knittedshawl #shawlknitting #knittersofinstagram #slowfashion

With the autumn chill definitely in the air it is time for more hot tea and even more yarn goodness! Inspired by one of my craft heroes @dottieangel I decided to try a bit of wooly tattooing on my fingerless mitts. It’s so much fun I might start pimping up all my knits! The fingerless mitts are made from snuggly baby alpaca yarn from @creswickwool and stitched using beautifully hand dyed yarn from @fishermansrib 🕯🍂🌾🍃🌻🐑#woolytattoo #dottieangel #creswickwool #fishermansribyarn #fingerlessmitts #autumn #autumnchill #barrystea #handknit #slowstitching #handdyedyarn #alpacayarn #slowfashion

Shawlsandshawlsandshawls.... I’ve got things juuuust about ready for the @riverarts Studio Tour!

Come say hi! #bloomhandmadestudio #riverartsst18 #dobbsferry #ilovemytown #bhsconcurrent #fishermansribyarn

My favourite things right now...knitting the ‘Birds of a Feather’ shawl by @dreareneeknits with the prettiest @fishermansrib yarn and reading the winter-y, sentimental ‘The Snow Goose’ which belonged to my Nana, was passed down to my Aunty Carmel & is now loved by me! 🌧🕯#dreareneeknits #birdsofafeathershawl #fishermansribyarn #handdyedyarn #shawlknitting #handknit #shawl #yarn #thesnowgoose #familytreasures #myfavouritethingsrightnow

So the #findyourfadeshawl is finished 😍. It’s already earning its keep keeping me warm on this crisp Canberra morning - but yet to find its way to the blocking mat 😄. I will endeavour to make some Insta worthy gorgeous shots to show it off in all its glory when I return home, but for now, a wee peak. 😍 #handmade #knittersofinstagram #fishermansrib #fishermansribyarn #andreamowrydesigns #snuggly #huge #beautiful

I believe @fishermansrib is going to be at a magical place called Clunes this weekend. And she will be bringing her magical yarn. This is doing little to disabuse me of the notion that I really, truly want to go to Australia. #someday #bloomhandmadestudio #bloomhandmade #fishermansrib #fishermansribyarn #indiedyer #indiedyedyarn #indiedyersofinstagram #yarn #yarnporn #mini #minis #yarnlove #yarnspirations #yarnlover #yarnlife #yarnologist

Today was a very good mail day! 💌 Snuggly @fishermansrib yarn in bubbly ‘cove’ & gentle ‘cotton rag’ 🐑💕 #fishermansribyarn #sockyarn #cove #cottonrag #handdyedyarn #australianyarn

One more sleep and I will be heading over to Clunes in Melbourne for a stitching retreat with @judynewman @margieandbert and @sugarpluma1 along with @fishermansrib and her delicious yarn. Cotton Rose will still be open as normal. Kim who I am sure you have all met will be looking after things until I get back next week. Drop in and say hi to Kim 😊 I’ll post pics along the way 😊💕#quiltessentiallyclunes #roadtrip#judynewman #margieandbert #raetelfer#fishermansribyarn
