I really should be calling this Kate's Creative Space as the beautiful yarn shown here was hand dyed by Kate from One Flat Slug.
Meeting Kate was for me one of the highlights of the recently completed Stitches and Craft Show. The Show's been more than adequately covered on other blogs so I won't say much more here other than I manned the It's a Purl Thing Bar for a couple of days.
The people wanting to crochet far outweighed the knitters so I don't think I was much use. I did manage to pick up the basics of crochet myself and then pass it on to a few unsuspecting people who probably assumed I knew what I was talking about. Cathy mentioned to me the phrase "fake it until you make it." I certainly faked it and I can only hope those I taught are now able to make it.
Back to the yarn and I'm not sure what I will do with it. I was taken in by the colour - my colour of the moment I think. A quick scan of my wardrobe confirms that at least 50% of everything I've bought in the last year is in the navy / charcoal band.
I bought a copy of Victorian Lace Today recently, so I'm sure to find something in there that will do justice to the gorgeous yarn.
