What?!?! Snow....in Rushworth!?!?!?

Greetings All! I've been enjoying stacks of great feedback about the Rushworth Hank...it is beautiful. Strangely all the fuss got me wondering if I could tweek it a little. And tweek it I did!!! It all started here...I've run it really finely through the wheel. That's my pinkie finger, so you can see how fine the yarn is. Is it lace weight? I'm not sure but it took me ages and ages and ages to spin!! I spun some white Merino at the same weight...plied them through and da da da daaaaaaa....we have snow in Rushworth!! Wow...I love this hank. Can you imagine the coolest surfie chic style beenie in this?? Of course I just had to tinker about with my new toy...hehe Check these out! This Blue Snowy ranges right through from light, light blue, darker blues and on to purple. Oh so cute! Safe to say it works in Blue... hehe! Remember that varigated green hank a few posts ago??...Well the Sheepychic snowy trick worked well too!...da da da daaaaaaa Green snowy! (oh so showy) hehe

Here they are...all dressed up with no place to go. Hanks available for purchase. Thanks for popping in to Sheepychic bloggings....bye for now!....Ruth xx

oh you dags..I'm not trying to sell off sheepychic to you guys!! It's for the mega squillions of people who log in that can't publish comments...! Kath the good news is that I have tried and I can recreate Rushy fairly accurately..so I can make as much as anybody wants. The raw rovings cost me $50 a kilo and it takes about 2 to 3 hours to make. Generally my hanks are $25 but don't stress...I've got a little something in the Rushy pipeline for Lil' K. Ruth xxx
