Be Magical : get your wands out and knit !




Happy Friday ! and , Happy June !!! A new month has started already ! and so little has changed…lol..well, for us Victorians that is..still in lock down. The only thing that has changed is the fact that the WHO has decided to make it somewhat easier and carry less stigma (although still as deadly) to explain the Covid variants..so instead of covid B.1.135 or B1.1.7 they have decided on Greek alphabet names. For some reason it made me immediately think of the sorority houses like Sigma Nu and the Tri Pi in “animal house”….LOL One thing is for sure: most of us are ,hopefully, comfortably on our couches wearing a “toga” most of the time, in these pandemic lock down times …lol Please, please, stay safe, get the vaccine if you are able , listen to the scientists and do not be tempted to get riled up by people on social media or the media full stop. They are not epidemiologists. Saying that I am not an employed epidemiologist either, but I do have a Phd in medical anthropology with a speciality in epidemiology and….I dye yarn and wool as my paying job ….LOLOL the world is a magical place , especially if you have a sense of humour !

All the club parcels have been packed and shipped on Monday morning and some have already received theirs, so later this weekend I will put the revealing photos on facebook and Instagram: Please check them out ! Also, I am already preparing the June club and the teaser photos will also be revealed over the weekend. It is all happening !!! It has been a bit hard to get going these last few days because Paul, who managed to somehow get hit by a flu (he got tested and no covid ! phew!!) did manage to give it to me…bless his heart ! He is such a giving person but I wished he would keep things like this to himself…. The last few days I have been doing it easy and keeping Kleenex in business and reading heaps. Feeling much better now so onwards with the club dyeing over the weekend and then on to a very , very special blending session the week after to prepare for RARE BREED MONTH JULY !!!!!!!! It has taken me a year to get some of these fibres so please stay tuned and all will be revealed very soon ! I have received some strange messages after my blog that explained why I would not be at the Bendigo Show this year and all of a sudden that seemed to have been misconstrued as “she is retiring” or”she is going to do something else”…. I am not that easy to get rid of I’m afraid…..and as to the fact of retiring…LOL…eh no, I can’t afford to nor would want to. Even if I were to win the lottery and win big (which in itself is a bit hard because eI do not gamble….lol) I would still be around dyeing and doing my artsy things. I have to. It’s my life. So, before anybody thinks because I won’t be at the Bendigo Show this year and wishes me “all the best on my new adventuires” … hold that thought ….ROFL I am still here to enable and available to provide you with any anti stress balls of yarn and fibres as necessary ! Always happy to help !



Today I am offering you some very special IxCHeL DK yarn in what I call the GAIA range : an organic, pure merino wool (white and light grey merino). That base makes the dyeing results super interesting ! And all grown and spun in Australia ! Also,don’t forget!: the club sign ups for the clubs starting in July are still open for sign ups !

If you would like to receive a surprise parcel every month that takes you on an art journey, where you discover new artists, their stories and their paintings, you also see my interpretation of their work of art into yarn and fibre. It’s exciting! It’s fun ! and it’s like a gift that keeps on giving ! Message or email me please to order or sign up for the clubs ! I am also taking custom orders.

Have a relaxing weekend!!
