Only a few more days to go!!

Well we are on the downward run for back to school!!! DD is really Looking forward to catching up with everyone, a bit nervous about having a new teacher, but I think that is par for the course!

I have been busily making lots of stitch markers this week.  The wonderful IxchelBunny is off to Bothwell Spin In in Tasmania on the 1-3 of March 2013.  And why I tell you this other than the fact that Ixchelbunny is made completely of Awesome is that she will be packing up the Bunny truck and have a side car full of Fiberific Goodies to add to her stand.  I am the process of packing up and sending lots and lots of stitch markers, ChiaoGoo Spin and Twist Sets

Ixchelbunny also has a HitchHiker Wheel, if you are really nice, she might let you have a test spin!!  If you have the opportunity to get to Bothwell it would be well worth the trip, I personally have not been, but would be completely envious to hear your stories and see your Pics!!!

Some sets of the stitch markers are still available, although if you want the Love Bots , there is only 1 set left.

It has been a week in the wars here at Fiberific!  Somehow last week I damaged my knee, I don’t really know how it just doesn’t like me.. I had a week where I could barely walk so no spinning was done.. I am completely hanging out to do some spinning, only to remember last night that I own support spindles and could have been sitting with my leg propped up with a spindle in my lap, well I can laugh now.  My knee seemed to fix itself after I had a day floating about in a friends pool… So knee good, but now I am a lobster. A lobster who can spin!! Picture that.

While I couldn’t spin, I did get lots of knitting and crocheting done, finished a hat off for a friend who is moving to another part of the country I used the Ribbed Cap Pattern from One Skein Wonders 101 Yarn shop favourites.  I got all the right oohs’ aahhs’ which is all you really want when you make a hand made gift. And nearly finished off another hat in broomstick lace… No pic yet, will wait until it is done.  But I do have a pic of the handspun Cashmere Fling that I plan to use. The Peacock Lace beanie will be made with this..

The Boys over at SpinOlution have their big ‘Winter Sale” still on (the wheels come from the US).  I am not sure when this will finish so if you are thinking about The Ultimate Art Yarn Hopper Works Package for $1550.  I would get in sooner rather than later.  If you would like a test spin, please let me know.
