Gung Hay Fat Choy!

Happy Chinese New Year!

It seems appropriate that I decided to return to my Knit Blog on Chinese New Year.

So many things symbolizes prosperity and long life in the Chinese culture. Abundance of good things is obvious at this time of the year. Fibre was probably not what they had in mind but seems appropriate here. My newest fleece - 3 pounds of sheepy-smelling brown Shetland. It's gorgeous!

I was hoping to have it all washed and drying by the end of the weekend. Unfortunately, the weather was the typical Vancouver weather - rain and lots of it. Other than the very brief bit of blue skies on Saturday morning, it was rain and wind all weekend. The second best thing to do was just to sort through the fleece and pack it away for another day. I spent as much of the weekend as I could flick teasing the Polworth and carding it into batts on the drum carder. I want to line my floor with these batts and roll around on them nekkid. They are that soft!

Note to self: change drums and blend some silk with the Polworth.
