Wool surprize

Cant' sleep more than 6 hours these days, don't you love menopause...Might as well blog.
Yesterday I got my wool surprise in the mail from Shelley at funknits, this was my surprise for completing my challenge on the tour de fleece, as I didn't even know she entered me in the draw from Team Vanisle on Ravelry. 2 skeins of gorgeous Lorna's hand dyed shepherd sock in Quadra Island color. Yummy. And, I still cant believe it, 250gr of Bombyx silk to spin, double yummy. For now I am just staring and fondling them....


















The spinning bug is back with me as I got all this fun colors roving in my stash. I love dying too but I have to say that spinning someone else colorway is like a new toy, a new colored pencil box, you want to play with it. I am spinning it rough as it is intended for felting. Check this new batch...


Definitely a new palette of colors and a new inspiration for more pot holders...

Yesterday was a great parcel day, I also received my artistic Wire. Great customer service in that place, the first parcel got lost in transit, and they replaced it. These are my fall colors for a series of "pearl in a net" knitted necklaces.


Can't wait to play with that color palette...

Hmm...this sleeping thing seems to be quite contagious. I often sleep from 11:00 to 3:30 and then awake until 5:00. That seems to be okay most of the time because it's a good time to dream...you know of upcoming projects. The only problem is that I often find that I have 4,5, 6 things on the go and it takes a long time to completion. Ah well, the dreaming is the beautiful part.
Nice to see that you are still doing so many interesting things. Go for it.
