I phone the local snake wrangler who quickly came to relocate it (they're protected) and he pointed out that this little fella could still kill a child. Omg. Not so brave now. It was hissin' and rearing up and doing it's best impersonation of Oscar's pet worm on Sesame Street...having a biiiigg hissy fit. Thank god it's Mum and Dad seem nowhere to be found.
On the Sheepychic front I've been busy knitting up a few more head bands...I'll list a couple in Sheepychic shop. This one pictured is made from a cute Sheepychic "snowy varied green" hank that I've had for a while. It looks a little chunky but it's not really....little P is a pip-squeek! hehe..Just sitting here looking at that picture I reckon that yarn would look great knitting up into a surfie style beanie...it's cute! I ran two green dyes over Merino rovings in different strengths, popped it in a croc pot and didn't stir at all...then when I spun I drew from both white rovings and the dyed Merino. I found that if I varied the angle of my drafting hand the yarn would flow between whiter or greener. It was good fun....a while ago now, though. If you'd like to order some yarn in a similar style...be it varied green or any other colour (varied pinks look great, too) just leave me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and I can spin you a 100gm. hank for $22. (plus the postage cost)Time now, though to put my feet up a little. All is quiet. Ahhhhhh...nice. A drop of Red, anyone? hehe All the best, and thanks for logging into Sheepychic Bloggings.

It's a really big hank...weighing somewhere around the 220gm mark. I will offer it for sale as a whole for a while in case someone is keen for a larger project. After a couple of weeks I may separate it into 2 hanks.
Thanks so much for popping into Sheepychic bloggings...and thanks so much for your emails and enquires. I'll get cracking on your orders so you can get a headstart for the Autumn weather! Bye for now, Ruth...xoxox
