Lots has been happening this last week ! Lots of dyeing of fibres and yarns for the clubs and dyeing of the rare Shep breed adventure “Hungarian Rhapsody” with Racka sheep AND last but not least some new and exciting sock/ fingering weight yarns. This weekend will all be about packing, labelling and making a gazillion of batt clubs and the adventures. The rare sheep breed adventure of the Racka Sheep and the March IxCHeL clubs will be ready to ship on Tuesday !! Weekends do not exist here …LOL
I have been on my feet now for a huge amount of time this week so I will be cutting the story line short I’m afraid , before my head hits the keyboard. I was talking to a friend of mine today comparing myself to a deer staring in the headlights and that is just how I feel: so much to do in such a short amount of time! So much so, it can be paralyzing. You know, like a deer in the headlights. In a bit more than a weeks time the grandvalley Spinners Show is on and then before you know it , it is time for the Handknitters Guild show in May and then Bam! Bendigo Sheep and Wool show in July It really is like they say : “Time flies when you are having fun !” LOL
Lucky for me , my brain is still coming up with imaginative colourways and new blends and lots of new and exciting everything, but sometimes I wish I were twins..lol Anyway, beggers can’t be choosers they say. So for tonights update I have some very fun and new yarn colourways for you !
Here are all the offerings for tonight and also the sign ups are open for the next fibre, yarn and batt club starting in April 2018! That is next month already so do not wait too long ! Even when you are a member now you will have to sign up again for the next round: it is not an automatic renewal. Just message me or email me to keep receiving the Art Journey Clubs.
IxCHeL Sock Yarn
Superfine superwash merino 75%, SILK 5%, Cashmere 5%, Nylon 20%
Has a beautiful drape and knits up soooooo easily ! A very addictive yarn ! Ye be warned !
-same dyeing method was used as with Dark Side of the Moon , only the black grey was changed over to some electrifying pink! Equally awesome to knit with !
Ice Age Heatwave
the beanie shows off the pooling that can be achieved with the yarn.
This time there is a gradual flow of warm yellows, orange and reds and purples showing off the icicle speckles around it. Super fun to work with !!! -
-you can NEVER have too much Unicorn Confetti!!!!-
(a hint of a chocolate speckle on the green portion of the rainbow.
The Unicorn must have been munching on some chocolate…lol )
Spinner’s Control, Yarn Gauge and Ply angle card
