News flash; Image heavy post causes readers eyes to bleed

I thought it was about time I updated again. I've been super busy with my TAFE studies the past couple of weeks. I had two assignments to hand in last week and one due tomorrow, which includes a presentation. I worked on it all day Saturday and most of Sunday and its finally ready.

On the craft front, in the last month Ive been buying fibre and yarn (as usual) and spinning a little. I also finished my angorino know, the ones I made from this fibre. They're wonderfully warm and super soft, here are a couple of pics of them all finished.

I purchased some more sock yarn, some of which I had dyed specifically for a project I want to work on. I also got some more of that gorgeous super angorino fibre from Ixchelbunny.

Gorgeous hand dyed sock yarn

Lovely sock yarn from EGMTK

I spun up the hopeful monsters fibre that I purchased and it has become a gorgeous sock yarn. It looks like this...

I bought a huge amount of merino fibre and some angelina fibre from EGMTK. I've blended some of the angelina with some of the 'Maeve' colourway and spun it into singles. I'm plying it with a strand of pure silk. Pictures of the finished product next post ;oP

So as you can see, I've not neglected my fibre addiction while I'm busy studying. Or my yarn stash for that matter. I unfortunately havent had much time to knit but I guess thats a trade off I have to be prepared to make. More fibre coming soon. Lol.


  1. I love your new socks!

    All of your new yarn and fibre is gorgeous!

  2. The colours of everything in this post are just gorgeous. Came in from Ravelry. Couldn't resist playing your game there - hope you don't mind.

    I went to the Craft Expo in Sydney on Thursday - I'm trying really hard to resist getting into quilting as a result of participating in Quilt Boot Camp there!

  3. Hi Lynne,
