Perth Festival Weekend and some FOs!

Exclusive colourways for Perth Festival Shop: Shore, Leather and Lake

One of the most enjoyable things about last year, other than officially setting up Fruitful Fusion, was physically taking Fruitful Fusion to events around the country. I loved meeting and talking to everyone about yarn, and other things too! But I also got to visit Yorkshire, a beautiful part of the UK I'd never been to, quite a few times. Getting across the border, for Perth Festival of Yarn, was on my list for 2020, but ... oh well! Once again, I am extremely grateful for technology and the ability to come together, virtually. So, for what would have been Perth Festival weekend (Saturday 12th and Sunday 13th September, 2020), Perth Festival Shop will be up and running! There are some fabulous products already available [Have you snagged your Eris Apple Patch? I have!] and all of the others will be up tomorrow at 10 am BST. I'm also excited about the Truly Hooked Zoom Room! Details on how to order and include shipping (which has to be done individually) are here on the Perth Festival website.

The three colourways shown above, Shore, Leather and Lake will be available as pre-orders exclusively at the Perth Festival Shop! 

Finished Objects

In other news, I finally managed to seam up and weave some ends in! I finished off the Ishrat Hat by Aoibhe Ni, and my six year old has already claimed it! It was my first time doing Tunisian Crochet and it was such a joy to follow along with Aoibhe's videos as well as the written pattern!

I also finished off another delightful knit, the Scotch Broom Tee, by Wool and Pine. I've used Embers in a Merino Nylon High Twist.
