Coming up in June, June 20th specifically, my small business, Gaia’s Colours Fibre Arts, will be participating in the Victoria Fibre Festival. So I get to work on dyeing as much yarn and spinning fibre from now till then. Meantime, I have two small-ish orders that have to go out to a Victoria LYS (local yarn store) called Knotty By Nature, and a brand-new, just opened LYS in Tofino called Knitting by the Sea. This has depleted my stock somewhat, so now I need to dye pretty much all of what I have in the next six weeks. Woohoo!
And if that wasn’t enough to keep me busy, I recklessly signed up for Ravelry’s group “Harry Potter’s Knitting/Crochet House Cup”, for the Spring 2010 term (May, June, July). We get to choose one “class” per month minimum to do one project for that class. Plus we can do extra in the OWLs or the Quidditch team. Like I don’t already have enough to do.
I’m contemplating ideas. I would love to dye yarn/fibre coloruways that are relevant to certain topics (flowers, or Norse mythology – I could do either). I have a cardigan pattern I’ve been wanting to do, “Estelle”, but am not sure if I should do it in the “flower” theme, and have to complete it in one month, or do it as an OWL, and have all term (three months) to complete it. Hm.
Will keep you posted.
