Yeah !!! It's Friday !!!





What a week !! Super busy and filled with dyeing heaps and heaps of new fibres and yarns, and of course, getting all the July club ready to ship out to all the members ! It sure was a mountain of fluff and yarn to get through ! I think people who craft are keeping Australia Post very busy these days !!

As usual I keep on thinking why I possibly cannot find more hours in the day, but I just have to stop doing that before I send myself in a total panic. I can only do so much I keep telling myself. Every now and again, I torture myself by listening to a nasty voice in my head saying I’m either not good enough, don’t do enough or you know, the regular stupid stuff. And again, I have to really, really train my brain not to go there! I survived though! I survived July! Well only a few more hours to go, but I mentally and physically made it, so I guess that is a good thing. Onwards !


I have lots of special things planned, Pandemic or not. I have some rare breed fibres I ordered start of the year and I am still waiting for them to turn up since they took a slowboat to Timbuktu somewhere, but no use stressing about these things or get annoyed. It is what it is. Lucky we do a lot of the spinning and processing of beautiful Australian Fibres here and lucky I was prepared and had lots of stock already in. See, sometimes it pays off to be a fluff hoarder …lololol
We are doing okay here in the middle of nowhere and quite out of the way of lots of people, so again: lucky ! There are so many who are not as lucky as us and I am sending heartfelt hugs to all who are doing it so tough during all of this. There is a lockdown in Victoria and especially those in aged care homes are in particular danger. Please take care, take care of others, stay safe, be mindful of others, wash your hands, stay home if you can and wear a mask when you do go outside. I have seen so many conspiracy theories doing the rounds and such a lot of misinformation it is doing my head in. Please fact check everything you read! And yes, a mask does not give you super powers, but it does protect you and others you are in close vicinity to, more than not wearing one! Be thoughtful of others also means that you show compassion for those who are doing it tough now, being away from their family and friends maybe. So, ask your friends if they are okay every now and again. We are all in this together. We can do this! And , through all of this we can all keep sane by spinning and knitting! I know it helps me calm down and destress.


So for all of you who love knitting with DK, 8ply yarn, I have prepared another big batch of my new GAIA yarn !!!! Last time I totally sold out of this gorgeous yarn, which is a base of grey and white merino plied together, so you get that depth and interest while dyeing it. It is also super soft and beautiful to wear. It is NOT superwash treated! All natural ! That means it is obviously best washed carefully by hand in cool or lukewarm water. Better not keep you waiting much longer ! Here they are and , oh before I forget!!, the club sign upas for October-November and December are also open!


Please don't hesitate to contact me at any time if you have any questions okay? Always happy to enable. All my contact details are to be found at the end of this weeks blog entry. Have fun !!!
