Moving, Wollmeise Red Hot Chili, Recycled Yarn, and Yarrrn.

It’s been a hectic month and a bit here. I’ve moved to the other side of town, unpacked and helped my mum, dealt with random dramas that have popped up, and so I’ve let things slide online. Mind you, I’ve had VERY limited access (and that was hell,) so I didn’t really have much choice. Needless to say that I cannot cope well without the internet at my fingertips.

So I’ve bought some things, one of which was a Christmas gift from my mother, five balls of Mid-Century Modern Yarn Vibrant Teal, Pink, Royal Blue, Purple & Green Combo from etsy seller RecycleandRepurpose. Aren’t they lovely? Not sure what I’m going to do with this yet, but the colour combo is just gorgeous and I love it. So five balls of that and I have many ideas, but not a plan. That will come.

I’m so behind on the wrap with tassels I’m weaving for a friend for her present, again, see moving. This was due to the fact that I wasn’t actually sure where I’d packed it, so finding it while unpacking took a while. Still, it’ll be finished, and hopefully before it’s Christmas of 2014!

My friend Lucy posted a photo of herself wearing a truly awesome t-shirt and I knew I had to have it. It’s so cool. So I bought one as a present to myself and it’s en route as we speak. I understand that there are no more being made so what’s left in shop is pretty much it. If you’re interested in this awesome thing, go here.

Finally, I continue my search for the Holy Grail of yarn: Wollmeise Red Hot Chili. Preferably in a thicker weight than lace or fingering, but at this point, I could be tempted. I just love how rich and vibrant the colours are, and I’ve seen things worked up in this yarn and they are stunning–the colours work together to make the finished product look like flames. I love it.

And that’s pretty much it for now. Hope everyone had a lovely Christmas and a happy new year!
