Amazing yarn

Knitters, spinners, dyers!

Do yourselves a favour, and go here –

Read a bit, then order a (free!) sample card. Mine came really quickly and I am simply in love with this amazing fibre.

17micron merino, produced without starving or mulesing the sheep. They are free to graze and live in social groups. All fibre is tracked throughout the processing cycle, so you know you are greeting what you pay for.

It’s expensive, at around $24 for a 100gm ball, but I’ve never seen anything like it before. Very special.

Presentation Day 2013

Presentation Day 2013, a set on Flickr.

Super kid graduated from kindy today. We were so lucky that all of his grandparents, and daddy were able to be there to see him graduate, be presented with his gold medal by the principal, and…

.. receive the Academic Achievement award for his class.

He’s so proud of himself, he’s been walking on air all day. “Mama”, he said to me, “tomorrow I’m going to wake up and remember that today was a very, very special day”.

I couldn’t be prouder of him if he won the nobel prize, and I couldn’t care less about what he achieves – but I am thrilled that he is enjoying the fruits of all the effort he has put in this year. I hope that he is enjoying school, and I especially hope that he will continue to do so.

Some pictures from Inigo’s sixth birthday party on Sunday. I was so busy I barely had time to catch a breath, but looking back on the faces, I think everyone had a wonderful time.

Thank you to Suniya for all her help, and to Bev and Mum for help organising the food. Dad for lifting, organising, arranging, and tidying. Thanks also to Tia Nani for being awesome, Adam for being Darth Vader, and to Peter for bringing a real life Storm Trooper!
