Quite often I find myself wishing I had fibre in a solid or semi-solid that would match and bring out the wonderful colours in handpainted fibre.

Sometimes it would be nice to have a solid yarn to use in conjunction with a handpainted yarn.

Sometimes it would be nice to have a solid single to ply with a handpainted single.

After a few months of mulling this over, I’ve decided to introduce what I’m calling “Duets” into my Etsy shop.

There is no hiding the fact that I love heathered yarns - lots of colours all smooshed together to create a rich and interesting yarn. Mix this in with a little handpainted beauty and voilĂ !

Introducing “Duets” from Southern Cross Fibre…



Catching Up…

Monday, November 10th, 2008

Someone told me recently that I’m a slack tart for not updating my blog more often (thanks Adrian!) So here is a quick catchup…

I moved from New Zealand back to Australia:

Sydney Opera House

Moved into my new home:

Started weaving:

Bought a new wheel - a Majacraft Suzie Pro with accelerated head - zoom zoom!

Spun a whole kilo of Polwarth (currently being made into a Seamless Hybrid sweater):

Spent three fantastic weeks in the US and met lots of wonderful people:

And opened a fibre shop - Southern Cross Fibre

Any wonder I haven’t been posting much lately?
