Spent the evenings with extra special woolly freinds and laughed a lot.
Just what I needed after leaving my last baby in Bolton.
Thank you extra special woolly friends for helping us get through the first couple of day's of being childrenless parents.
Would show you lots of photo's but was too busy eating scones and talking.
So have a look at Claire's blog and Mr Bluefaced's raverly group

Well here it is...
Half of stock that is off to the Bluefaced.com open weekend tomorrow.
Some of the Ally Pally stock, which is still building
What came off the line yesterday and still isn't dry.
And a dye room with about another 8 - 10 kilos left to dye.
And now I have some roving!!!!!
It will be going to The Bluefaced. com weekend and will be unveiled in all its full glory at Ally Pally and if there is any left; then home to the website mid October.
But it is very naughty!!! So fluffy I can’t get it in its bag, I end up in a huge fight, with the Merino winning, takes about 10 mins to get it in its bag and then when I have I discover it is full of bits, which it has picked up from the clean table.
I think it secretly calls to the bits which fall out of the sky when I am not concentrating. I don’t notice them until the bag is sealed, so then I have to go through the whole bag shoving trauma again!
And here is the bad, naughty Merino pre-bag.

As with the Nino Merino and Mirage sock yarns the alpaca/merino will still feature in the clubs and will also be sold wholesale.
The alpaca/merino will be on the site until we go to Ally Pally and will be removed sometime on the 6th or 7th of october.
So if you were thinking of buying some, now is the time before it disappears -:-)

Thanks to all who entered and congratulations to the winners.
Don't forget the auctions start the first week of november on ebay, I will load the auction links on the individual dolly pages on the web site. That way you can find them easily. There will be 3 prizes for the 3 dolly's who raise the most money, so please do lots and lots of bidding.

And during that 33 days we have i Knit tomorrow and Blueface.com's open weekend in Chester. However am I going to be able to dye enough and prepare enough to fill the giant stand we booked this year???
And Heidi is leaving to start her sparkly new job on the 23rd of sept, Val will be her replacement, but Val does all the winding too, who knows how she is going to fit it all in.
Plus there is september's club yarn to finish dyeing, october's to get out before Ally pally and several huge wholesale orders.
And on the personal front we have sold the house and the sale will be complete at the end of October, we still don't have anywhere to move to.
The planning permission saga is on-going with lots of meetings.
Fred is starting uni, so I become childless for the first time in 22 years, have already had several nights of feeling the pain of being an empty nester. Although there isn't going to be a nest soon.
Think I am going to self destruct or find a nice big warm stone to hid under.....

The handfast in photos.....................
After following Dais for 20 mins in the wrong direction we eventually arrive at the beach 1 hour late.
The big one & her man (incidently you may not believe it, but her hair is 100% natural colour & curls)
The camera decided to focus on the wine rather than the faces, who are my big baby and my little baby who is leaving at the end of the month and I will then be a childless mother.
The morning after.
