It’s that busy time of year where I’m out and about regularly at the local wool shows around Cornwall and Devon. It’s an exciting time – and very busy alongside my IT day job too!
Thanks to all of you who came along to Liskeard Wool Market and Kelly House Woolly Weekend; it was fabulous to chat to you all. It was great to see a host of familiar faces alongside lots of new ones too. Liskeard Wool Market was on a Saturday instead of a Friday, and many new visitors turned up to the 9th Woolly Weekend after hearing about it for the first time.
I hope you’re all enjoying your yarn and kit purchases. I’d be thrilled if you would share pictures of your in-progress projects and finished items on Facebook and Instagram if possible. Tag @PerranYarns and I’ll get a notification. It’s fascinating to see the colourways once they’ve been knitted, crocheted or woven in comparison to when the yarn is in the skein.
I have a couple of weeks to catch up and restock more of the colourways before the next show, which is Stitchfest South West at Totnes. I travel and exhibit alongside Caroline from Gorgeous Yarns and we always have a fun weekend. In the meantime, while I have the dyepots out, let me know if you’re looking for a particular yarn base and colourway combination and I’ll see what I can dye for you.
