New Year, New Stuff!

So Christmas came and went, and was virtually hassle free, I had some lovely gifts..notably Norah Gaughan-Knitting Nature (which has been on my wish list for a long time) and Inspired to Knit aswell although they both inspire me to keep working at it. My bestest pressie has to be the complete DVD set of the Buffy The Vampire series, I just need to find the time to watch them all the way from the beginning!

The frogged Sweater of Doom is back to where it was and a little more since frogging, and I've been doing a little dyeing. After the experience with the merino/cashmere/silk/angora that Rosie gifted to me, I decided it was time to branch out a little and try some different fibres in my etsy shop. 1st up is Swamp Thing, a blend of merino/cashmere/silk....I listed it earlier (sorry it was snapped up!)






This second one is a blend of 50% merino/50% angora, it's soooooo soft and it's called Beautiful Stranger, over in my etsy shop now!
