Helloooo Yarn Lovers. I can’t believe it’s been 6 months since we last connected. I hope you and your loved ones and friends have managed to get through what was, without a doubt, the strangest and toughest year for everyone. If you lost someone close to you last year, please accept my sincerest sympathies and condolences.

Hello yarn & fibre-lovers & -crafters
And so we enter another phase of lockdown, albeit a different version of the same phase. It is starting to get a bit confusing trying to keep up with minor changes and what’s new. In version 1 of lockdown level 3, I recall getting very excited that places of worship would be allowed to reopen, with a maximum capacity of 50 worshippers. I immediately thought that this was the right time and perfect reason for Yarmies to become a religion.

Hello blog. We still have (hopefully only) two weeks of lockdown to go and our household is managing (just barely, on some days) to keep our sanity in tact. How are YOU doing? I have to say that the fact that I have a SABLE (stash acquired beyond life expectancy) is definitely in my favour. What more could one ask for… we have yarn; we’ll survive lockdown.
I hope you’ve had a great week so far. Just 2 more week-days / work-days to go.
My girls and I just can!not!wait! for this weekend and the Alliepad Alpakkas Farm Visit and Fibre Festival (details on the Events page). I’m so looking forward to a wonderful day out in the Magaliesberg, to the classes, workshops and demonstrations, and to drooling over the hand crafted alpaca-fibre goods and everything on offer from Baah Yarns & Fibre Arts, Linda’s Treehouse, Umbala Handpainted Yarns, Karoo Moon, The Yarn Tree, Craft Academy, Glynis Brooke, L.J. Craft Creations and Stitch Please.
It’ll be the first time I’ll be visiting the alpaca farm, and it’s long overdue. I met the lovely Louisa at a weaving course at the beginning of the year and have been wanting to visit her for ages. But time is a fickle beast – it passes way faster than it theoretically should and somehow there just isn’t enough of it when you need it. I first just need to get through this week with my heart still in my chest…
