Just completed this last night: Handspun Swiss Cheese in Watercolour Dream.

The fibre timed out of the 'shop' in the 'old' days....and as it was only 100g, I plied it with a silk thread to make it go a bit further. I had about 260metres at 22WPI, 125g.

Well almost finished, I haven't sewn in the ends or blocked it yet, but I couldn't wait to show it off!

This week!

Update 20/02

This week I've been working harder than usual to get the update ready a day early, as we're off visiting family today.

I'm really quite pleased with the steely greys and reds!

The update will be going live tonight!

Love Is In The Air....

I have been back at the dyepots again this week, but I have been working with a few new blends.

First up is a blend of merino/baby alpaca/silk:

Stupid Cupid

A Fine Romance

Then some merino/soybean:

It Must Have Been Love

And some merino/tencel:

Every Breath You take

Hoping to find time for a bit of spinning and a few rows of knitting this weekend!

Can I do 7 Quick Takes Friday in a Blur!

1) My life is just passing in a blur of dyed fibres at the moment!

2) My dear friend Kim at Fibre Café nominated me for a Kreative Blogger Award, and I'm not going to nominate anyone else....I still love to drop in on my friends that still blog, it's like meeting a friend for a coffee, peeping into these lives and watching all the paths that cross and intertwine.

3) I still haven't found a new Winter Coat, maybe by the time that I do Spring will be here, and I can start to take a leisurely look at coats at the start of next season!

4) Keith has just given me a new intrigueing Rubik's Cube from Japan, it's called Rubik's Mirror Cube, the blocks are different sizes, will take some photos tomorrow before I start to mess with it! This is a photo I found on the web, except mine is gold!

5) I am reading Neil Gaiman- Neverwhere really slowly at the moment, can't seem to keep my eyes open for long when I get into bed!

6)If you haven't heard Fleet Foxes, Mykonos then go and listen NOW!

7) I didn't really think I would make it through 7 Quick Takes but here I am at number 7, what can I tell did I manage to not to mention the weather that has caused chaos around the country this week!

I will leave you with a glimpse of this weeks update:
