Yesterday is Here or Speckled Convergence

showing off some speckle and Splash :
detail of Convergence by Jackson Pollock

It's Friday .again ! Who knew? It seems to fly by at 5x the speed of light. I wish yesterday was here so I could manage more stuff but unfortunately time travel has not been invented yet and, to tell you the truth, if it was at all possible to time travel so I could do more it would most likely kill me. I dyed about 10 kilos of yarn and kilos and kilos of fibres not to mention carding the Valais Blacknose adventure which was another 10 kilos. I think that's one of the reasons I felt a bit "off colour" today, although saying that, I am never really "off Colour" ; I'm always Immersed in colour. You should actually see my dye studio which now after loads of speckle and splash parties (oops that somehow sounds weird..LOL) resembles the room where Jackson Pollock painted.

The launch Party last week went so astronomically well that I sold out and had to dye another 2 kilos extra for custom orders! So I did not stop and have some more for you all to snaffle. I love working with this yarn: it is smoochy, super soft and is very colour hungry. Dyeing the speckled yarnd and coming up with the colour combinations is the most invigorating thing ever: Colour does make you happy. The strange thing is nowadays that I was never a really pink girl, but now I cannot get it out of my mind or out of my hair So there ya go: colour preferences and tastes do change over time. I also have dyed up some extra special Bunny Bison Bliss tops for those of you who love spinning your own yarn. I do not have a whole lot of thise blended up because the Valais Blacknose carding and batting up took a lot of my time this week. Here is all the happy fluffy stuff and especially for you, who have been showing so much support I have a special just for you : Order over $150 and you get free post ! Happy snaffling !
