a Cool Valentine Update in a Heatwave

What a busy busy week ! All the January clubs have all been shipped out on monday together with  lots and lots of custom orders, with a couple still to be finished by wednesday and's time to get the ball rolling again with the february clubs :-)

I have posted all the photos of the clubs on my IxCHeL facebook page and Instagram, so please feel free to have a look! The teaser of the feb club label will be posted in the next couple of days. The theme of the whole of 2017 is "Fantasy"  !

I am slowly but surely getting better, but it is still wayyy too slow to my liking. At least my voice is getting back but singing is still a no go and I'm still on medication , which does not allow me to have a super cool cider or wine in this super hot heatwave we are experiencing. Even here in the mountains where it is normally way cooler than anywhere else in the suburbs or the city, it is mid 30s Celsius. I should not complain becasue I heard that there are people out there having to deal with temps as high as 44C ! So yeah, I thought , people must be thinking I am out of my mind doing an update trying to sell wool when everybody just wants to stay cool ! yep, taht's me! I remember I was at a Gembrook Market way back and it was 40C, no customers, all teh stallholders were putting an icecold towel on their necks becasue it was THAT hot and  there I was, trying to sell my wool and yarn.. LOL  aaah  nothing ever changes...

If you want to be enticed during a heatwave just before Valentines day though what can possibly do that. And, with a stroke of fibery genius, I thought FLING! Ofcourse!!! my Cashmere Fling blend! It is silky, super smoochy soft, COOL to the touch and slinky and spins and knits up like a dream ! So that is what I have been working on this week to offer to you : Romantic super cool fibery flings!
