Today the knitting group I attend had an outing to Natural Dye Studio in Hollesley. It was just lovely!
Lois collected me at 1030hrs and we headed out there. It really is in the Suffolk countryside, in a wonderful secluded venue!
Amanda, was just lovely and showed us how the dyeing is done, and explained the process to us, and we were then let loose on the shop, which of course was the best part! Great yarns, great colours, how can a girl not shop! So of course a number of purchases were made. I bought some silk yarn for a shawl and some more sock yarn! Yes I know still trying to make my first sock but hey ho at least I have stash for when I have mastered it!
Got home at about 1300hrs! Great day, thank you!
Here are some pictures of our outing :-
