Merry Christmas to you all

Hope you all have a very Merry Christmas. 
Take care and see you all next year. 
Lots of hugs and kisses from a very green and rainy Sweden...

Tomorrow it's Halloween - Samhain. In the old days a time for change, marking the end of the old year and the birth of a new one. Today a time for trick and treats. 

In Sweden we don't really have a tradition of celebrating Halloween but I like the idea of closing the year and embracing the darker quieter season ahead, a season with time to spinn, knit and create. 

So to mark the changes of seasons I will be hosting a trick or treat Halloween pot luck sale :-) out with the old, making space for the new. 

At noon Swedish time (CET) I will be posting a trick or treat listing in the shop  - Enjoy

News and updates

It's been a while - again :-) 

I have been doing some dying...

My last  yarn and fiber show for this year...

Some knitting....(and surgery -Hallux valgus)

And some planing :-)

I have some wool in my big boxes under the bed that's been around for maybe one show too many by now and since they are getting slightly fuzzy around the edges I would like to put these on sale. There is absolutely nothing wrong with them but they feel like moving out in to the world now.

So I'm planing a pot luck sale at great bargain prices, 50% off, but with one little twist - you don't get to choose the fibres - they will be a great surprise. You can wish for a colour and if possible I will do my very best to accommodate this wish, but fist come - first served applies...

I need another day or two to get all set, but by Thursday afternoon (Swedish time)  it will be on. I'll let you know here and on Facebook what exact time...

I feel like I'm running a bit late here on line, can't quite keep up. A lot of things happening around here right now - new house, foot surgery (Hallux vagus), new car and an awful lot to do at work, things just have a way of coinciding. Well, to be honest none of the things mentioned has really taken place yet, but they’re rapidly approaching and there is so much to be done...

Meanwhile I just last night got my one hundredth like and as I promised there will be a surprise, but not without a small effort from you - here are the rules...

1. You must of course like Willow Fairy Wool on Facebook

2. You must visit Willow Fairy Wool on Etsy and pick one favourite.

3. You must write a few words about this favourite here on the blog.

Next weekend I will pick a random winner from the comments left here on the blog - and the prize? It's a surprise, but I promise you it's good :-)

Good Luck
