I have what SABLE looks like. There was a fiber arts estate sale and I showed up early to be there when it started and to get the best pick. I would say I did well. Twelve cones of yarn (10 are pure cashmere), a cone winder, and 8 books. Three of the books are old out of print versions of Alice Starmore's. The ones that people paid a lot of money for. I made out like a bandit for the low price of $75.
Seriously, how can anyone just not fall absolutely in love with this woman? She cards, spins and dyes the wool herself before making her rugs, which can takes months - or even years - to finish. Her name is Ummahan Basol ❤️. On assignment for @vogueliving #weaving#carpet#handmade#artisan#turkishartisans @luxbodrumresort
This incredibly thoughtful and beautiful @fibreshare package arrived yesterday from @selinafield in Seattle! Complete with chocolate, nail polish, and natural dyes! Officially obsessed with the fibreshare community and so excited to send my package to @keelyw this week ❤️#weaving#fibreshare#fibresharetribe
Today I learnt how to weave exquisite Turkish carpets in a village dedicated to the craft for hundreds of years, by a beautiful 60-year-old lady who has been doing it her whole life. Needless to say, she's better at knotting than me... (and yes I bought a carpet - well... two carpets...).

Sunday weaving.....needed a smaller project to bring on that "satisfaction-of-completion-feeling" before starting my next larger one. Anyone else find themselves doing this? I have to say for an unplanned "diversion" project I'm really liking it!! 😄 #procrastination
