Look what I found hiding in the cupboard!

"Sweet Nothings" merino/angora and bamboo viscose, 1 skein x 115gms (SOLD), 10 ply weight, $26

Here's a pikky of one of our beasties "Misty", who's about to give birth any day now... along with the rest of our herd of coos and then there'll be more little hairy beasties frolicking on the farm!!

"Bush Walk", merino/angora, 1 skein x 60gms (approx. 175 metres) $15, 1 skein x 70gms (approx. 155 metres) $12, 8 ply weight.

Spring has sprung, the grass is ris...

It looks as though Spring is definitely on it's way down here in the Huon Vally - though it hasn't felt like it at times with all this blasted rain! The sun decided to show it's head today so I took the opportunity to take some photos of my latest spins and to let you all in on something exciting.

Here's "Magnolia Weekends", an 8 ply weight yarn that is destined for a lovely lady in Tas...

... and here's another one of hers: "Love-in-a-Mist", another 8 ply weight yarn

OK, the excitement.... I'm taking part in the Ewe Beaut Fibre Sampler Box this time around. Here's some pikkies of what I'm sending to JD.

Here's the Ewe Beaut Blog address so you can all stalk the next sale. The first one was a roaring success and sold out pretty quickly, so you'll have to be fast when they come up for sale:

Have wool, will dye!

Orright! So I may have gone slightly overboard with the dyeing.... but I got into my groove and the dyeing mojo was flying thick and fast. So this is what happens when I have a biiiiiig dye up:

I can't believe that there's still more out on the line drying! Hoooweeee, there's going to be a big update this weekend folks!
