Wowowowowo!   How busy at the moment?  My most recent project is with some new yarn.  Yesterday, I met a wonderful couple and their beautiful daughter, Maya.  Charlotte and Erkan are starting a family business importing an up-cycled yarn made from cloth selvedges.  It's brilliant!!  And after a nice cream-topped hot chocolate and a very interesting chat, I flew home with my sticky paws full of bobbins ready to have a play!!!

I am so pleased with it.  It crochets really easily and work grows quickly.  The yarn has a really firm, structural texture and is going to be fantastic for things like bags, pots, mats and things. (It's also really cheap - Shhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!)  All that and up-cycled too, so I feel like I'm doing my bit...

I'll get some pictures up asap - just whipped up a bag in no time today - but in the mean time, I highly recommend you pop to their site and have a look for yourself.
