New season's Sheepychic....

I'm totally immersed in yarns and dyes right now...it's a great time of the year for us fibre lovers, isn't it! This season I'm pleased to announced that my hanks are about 20% bigger than they were last year. Hooray! (That's a 20% larger pillow for you, big fella, D...is that a 20% bigger smile I see? hehe...)
Sheepychic hanks are all 100grams upwards now....generally plenty for the cosiest scarves, roomiest beanies and funkiest cushion covers. Have a peekie-boo at some of my new colourways...here are some of my freshly dyed Merino Rovings ready to be spun, embellished, packed up and made available to you adorable knitters out there.... hop in quickly if you see something you like, though. (Just email me to put it aside for you...they're all $25 Australian) I only keep them for a week or so, then it's off to retail land they go.
I'm having to agree with P...they do look like jelly fish at this stage.
All the best, and thanks for logging into Sheepychic bloggings.
Ruth..xoxo

Gosh Ruth,
Those are all just lovely!
I can't tell which jellyfish I like best, the rainbow (2nd) or the purple/green (last). They are all gorgeous!

I hope you are having fun getting ready for winter. It is 85 degrees here and climbing rapidly.

D looks adorable! What beautiful yarn too!
Can't wait to see what you knit up!
Holly
