My favourite obsession

Come up to the lab and see what's on the slab. I see you shiver with antici...........pation. I've been making a man, with blond hair and a tan...

G'day all!

I give you pictures of my current obsession. Lots of pictures. They are not really of a man with blond hair and a tan (and a little pair of gold shorts - gosh I wish I had the money to be able to pull a comment out of the hat and send a prize to the person who identifies who sia dthe quote and in what). No longer up to date pictures, since these were shot when I had 125g of yarn left and now I have mm, maybe 25g. I still have no idea if it will work or not - the circumference of it is now about 3 metres I'd guess (actually if I remember my algebra, it apparently is about 4.5m around - no wonder each row takes a while now!).















In the mean time I must really update my website with new dyed yarns and also some handspun! Lots of handspun! Here's a little hint of what will be going online hopefully in the next day or two...

Plus there will be ONE lonely skein of merino:tencel sock yarn in mauves/purples/pinks. It looks so purty! You can see a little hint of it in one corner of the box. It is a bit shiny. I dyed it up for me, then I realised that since we will most likely be going to the USA, I can buy more there and dye more up! I know it is as rare as hens' teeth here. I can probably open up a supply line for us poor benighted Australians who do not have these fancy sock yarns (but we do have patonyle and heirloom argyle!).

anon!

  6. Lovely colours. I see others have beaten me to identifying the quote. Scary thing is , 13 daughter would have identified it too - I bought it recently so that G and I could relive our youth and she immediately became obsessed with it!
