Quiet Round Here

I may have been a bit distracted lately and neglected blogging
First Up Clothilde completed really quickly from my spun up Ixchelbunny update.
The yarn is called And We Danced (Previous update) I have yet to block it...but it is warm and cuddly

I might have been trawling for some Easter Gifts (almost better than chocolate) above
Wollmeise destash
Ixchelbunny update
Ewe Give Me the Knits Fibre Club and Beez Neez
What are you up to this easter?

I may have also been spinning up a storm Below is Rainbow Connection spun up to evolve from dark to bright colours from one of Ewe Give Me the Knits Magic Balls.

And We Danced

This weekend was spent spinning this gorgeous Angora merino Blend from ixchelbunny.
So Soft and such stunning colours I am truly delighted with the end result and cannot wait until I can knit it up. It is destined for a small shawl or scarf. It reminded me of Eighties colours so it has ended up being called And We Danced.

Below is the result of the previous spin in January/February. I used this 200g of Merino to play with my spinning techniques a little. The end result is fine and I have named it Copperhead Road. The streaks of copper are quite stunning.

On the knitting front I am a fair way into the back of the new Dusty Stars (Stardust) cardigan using some (Now unavailable) The Knittery Silky Merino 8 ply in Purple Nights. Photos when I get a chance. It is knitting quite quickly.
