Knitting up a storm
I had the pleasure of previewing this yarn and the minute I got it, I fell in love and had to cast on straightaway!
The colour has such a "stormy" feel to it, but is buttery soft yet substantial. You have to feel it to understand.
I am using this lovely Gotland yarn
in Charcoal for my Alice top
. A lacy stunning vest which I plan to wear with a shirt to layer on in winter.
Knitting like a maniac to finish this soon so I can wear it!
Gotland sheep are originally from Scandinavia, but Cheryl has started her own herd here in Australia and processed her fibres and yarns in Australia. I have been a fIrm supporter of Australian made and processed, so have managed to score most of the small production from the farm for this year.
Since autumn is here and heralds the coming cooler season, I am announcing a sale on the favourite yarns of EcoOrganic Cotton
, Treliske Organic Wool
and Organic Cotton Flamme
for 2 weeks starting 4th May.
Last, but not least, have you seen Rhonda's blog? Down To Earth Blog
is such an inspiration to me. Her ethos and management of her home are something to aspire to. I have tried her techniques and tricks with great success. Check it out!
