I am very pleased to tell you that I am planning another Trunk Show.  It is a while since I did one, but when Leona of Fluph said she'd be willing to host me I said "YES PLEASE!".  So on Saturday, 8th August, you will find me here:


Fluph is in Dundee, which is another reason I'm looking forward to going as my Mum grew up in Dundee, and I have no clear memories of the place at all.  It is a city which is experiencing exciting creative developments too, such as the new V&A Museum of Design.

For those of you unfamiliar with Trunk Shows, what it means is I turn up at Fluph with quite a few boxes of my yarn, and those of you who want to see it come along and have fun looking at the yarn, and hopefully buying some.  Leona has promised there will be cake!  I have heard reports of her legendary cake, so believe me when I say this is a real incentive.

I hope to see many of you at Fluph on the 8th.  You can find the address on Leona's website.

And perhaps to entice you to Fluph, I am also pleased to tell you that by then I hope to have a new base in stock.  I have, for some time, been wanting to offer my Reliable Sock Yarn base as a Double Knitting weight.  And it looks very likely that this will now be happening.  I hope to have a small stock arriving next week, and once it is dyed I will let you know.  Stevan suggested the name Doubly Reliable Sock Yarn, which I think may well be appropriate.  This will be ideal for a quick project, or for boot/welly socks.  The yarn will come in 150g hanks and each hank will have approximately 420m.

In the meantime, I have added a few hanks of  Assynt Storms to the Reliable Sock Yarn shelf.

Finally, I think I have forgotten to mention on the blog that the Yarn Notes from Assynt yarn club is now available on the beautiful Suilven base.  If you are a current member and wish to swap to this base, please get in touch and we can sort that out.  If you wish to join the club then you will find all the details here.  Members have really been enjoying their membership, and I can hardly believe we only have 5 more months of the club to run.
