The Etsy shop...

... is being updated gradually over the next few days.

Has anyone worked out how to get the new Flickr photo page to upload directly without having to download to a computer and then upload to blogs from that? It's driving me crackers and I'm sure I shouldn't have to do that.

Stirling again.

And this is what all that sock yarn has turned into! I'm just about to bring the rest of my fibre and yarn downstairs and pack a few clothes, then I'm ready for when Mark comes back from work in the morning. He'll help me pack the van, then I'm off to work until the post arrives and then I'll set off for Stirling.

As I'm setting off from Leeds rather than home, I shall track straight North on to the A1 then hack across the A66, so it will be rather different scenically than my usual drive north. Let's hope I have a successful time; I'm slightly worried as it's rather a knitters' gathering thana spinners', but there seem to be lots of spinning persons there. Fingers crossed.

And I plan a visit to Stirling castle if I get up in time tomorrow.

Sock yarn again



There's rather a lot here. I always forget how long it takes me to tidy each skein up, wind up neatly, and attach a label. And there's a sweater's worth of aran yarn in Twilight and another sweater's worth of chunky in Baranduin. Normally I break up smaller lots of yarn that I occasionally carry (I usually only have sock yarn in stock) into various colours, but this time I thought I may as well dye them up into a whole sweater's worth. Let's just hope people like them.

I did the aran in Twilight because people seem to be going potty for purple at the moment.

Roll on next week and Stirling at the end of it.
