The Sweet Smell of

...... Sussex Lavender!



This week I've mostly been working away on some lavender bags for Aardvark!


There have also been some new colours added to the shop:



This Weeks Fibre Update



And I'm also busy dyeing a few braids for this fabulous FREE local event:



In other lives Kim transformed this yarn (which she purchased through etsy)



into this scrumtious chevron scarf:



and matching hamdwarmers:



It's always a thrill to see my handspun yarn complete it's journey, and also heartwarming to know it's so well loved and will be warming the neck and hands of a dear friend!

You're so clever, sweet smell of sussex... :^) those bags are fabulous! As are your new colours, it's apparent you enjoy giving them names, and I like the names you give to your fibres.
Beautiful scarf and mitts out of your handspun and knit by Kim, such gorgeous yarn!
