Fibre Clubs!

Saturday, March 29th, 2008

Hi! I realised today that it is nearly the end of March and I haven’t posted anything in weeks. Where has the month gone? So much has happened in the last few weeks. One of the most exciting things to happen is the arrival of some absolutely gorgeous
fibre in the mail. I’m lucky enough to belong to the two best fibre clubs in the world! I certainly am lucky to have two extremely talented people delivering fibre to my door on a monthly basis. So thank you to Amy and Adrian! You both spoil me rotten.

I received my first ever Club fibre from Hello Yarn last week. It is truly beautiful - all of my favourite colours rolled into one! Not exactly sure what this will become, but it is screaming “SHAWL!” at me.

I also received my first ever Club Fibre from Spunky Eclectic - Think Spring!

Immediately I knew that it had to be a baby something. It wasn’t until I saw sheknitsredsox’s Zeebee on Ravelry that I knew what it was going to be.

The next shipment from Spunky Eclectic is due any day now (along with a whole bunch of other goodies). Can’t wait!

Blended & Posh

Thursday, March 6th, 2008

The blending for my fair isle hat project is done and the spinning is underway:

So far I’ve spun up the one on the left, the two on the right and some undyed fibre:

I’ve also been busy this week knitting the Garden Party shawl. There is a KAL in the Posh Knitters group on ravelry. The people involved are great and it has been a heap of fun. More on this next time…
