Startitis in Grey and Blue.

Startitis in Grey and Blue.

I seem to have a dose of Startitis - and the winter seems to be affecting my colour sense - not only do I have three grey projects on the go and another one planned, I am sitting here wearing an outfit that consists of 5 different shades of gray.

So I went looking for bright shit on Flickr to put some zing into the day:

brights to feel better

Much better. And just for good measure, I bought some of that yellow yarn up there, so expect eye-searing projects in the future.....

I've had dye pots on the go this week with a new base - merino/cashmere/nylon sock yarn, which is 460 yards of smooshy, warm and soft goodness.....

I still have to photograph everything ready for sale, but here's a sneak peek:

I'm predicting a shop update in the next couple of weeks, but the yarn is taking forever to dry in the cold weather, so it might be a bit longer....

For all you Rav Heads out there - I have a Ravelry group now for updates and stash pimping:

Drop in and say hello, won't you?

More to come - I promise - the new financial year resolution is to be a better blogger, and to take more photos of shit. Especially shit I have finished making. Must employ a minion.

I'm not usually the type to get an uncontrollable crush on a dress, but there's a first time for everything I suppose:

images from Mociun, where you can buy it for me, um I mean, well - whatever.

Anyone got a spare $500AUD I can borrow?

Hm. Didn't think so.
