A new Hope with some Magic




Feeling happy with some magical tops

I had no idea I was so stressed. It seems that, as a political, news and ethics addict, screaming at every insane thing over the last four years has left its’ wounds…I mean , who knew? LOL It felt like a relief to listen to full sentences again, poetry, honest empathetic words, soothing. I know reality is harsh and I do not expect things to magically change overnight for the world, but not to have the airways filled with unfiltered lies has made my heart sing. Like a said…it’s like a cloud has lifted and now we can all clean up the mess….and never shout again. Until of course I read that Clive Palmer wanted to invest in a coal mine in Queensland near the Great Barrier Reef and Craig Kelly (Australian Liberal politician and I mean Liberal over here means conservative…logic eh? Lol) about some weird Covid cure and I got all shouty again. There’s so much more work to be done obviously. Onwards !


Because it was a milestone kind of a week with the USA finally having a Black woman Vice President (Girl Power !) I did some energetic dyeing and thought why not make it a magical kind of update with some of my Magic Bunny tops. It has been quite a while since I have offered that blend so here it is ! A fab blend of Superfine merino, Angora bunny, cashmere and a fun mix of rainbow glitz ! Everytime that fibre catches a ray of sunshine it lights up and explodes in a rainbow of colours. Super soft and easy to spin and felt too !




Also, Tweed yarns are there as well, so if you would like to have a go at knitting Bernies mitts! Go for it with some nice colourwork 😉




Bernie Sits 😊 much more about this photo is explained on my Instagram, so please hop over and follow me there if you like. I am @ixchelbunny



When I am dyeing I either listen to audiobooks, podcasts or music. And this week I have been listening to the B52s so yeah, could not resist !!!
