Back to normal :)

Happy Fibre Arts Friday! Finally my study has come to an end, I had my last exam this week and it is all done. Right now I don't even care about the result, I'm just glad it is over, which means I can play with fibre again. Yippee!

Actually I've been catching up on Game of Thrones, and it is very conducive to get some serious knitting done when watching TV, especially with plain knitting. Remember the Heathery Moors sock yarn I spun last month? It's now a pair of very cosy socks, I really needed them today as winter has well and truly set in here in Melbourne.

I also have a couple of skeins to show off, these were finished in the last several weeks but I was too busy to update the blog so here they are...

The first is a commission spin for a customer, it's a blend of Polwarth, baby camel & silk in the "Go Lassie Go" colourway, dyed by my business partner Rachael (a.k.a. Sparrow), it was a dream to spin.
The second one is from an IxChelBunny top I bought at last year's Bendigo show, it was a gorgeous blend of Cashmere, Angora & Tencel, not the easiest to spin but the result is delightful.
Well, that's my lot for this week, it's great to be back :D

Thanks for dropping by, please hop over to Andrea's at Wisdom Begins in Wonder for more fibre fun.
