Hey there, just a really quick update that I will be moving tomorrow morning! Everything is packed and we are ready to go. If all works out I will arrive in the UK on Sunday and will hopefully get settled reasonably soon. The Etsy shop is also currently closed but will reopen once I can get to all my yarns again and I changed the shipping. :)

All the best,

Please vote on the Etsy voter!

One of my yarns has been nominated to be in an etsy vote with the topic of handspun yarns. Of course I would absolutely love it if you took a peek over there as well and perhaps voted for my 'mistress yarn', or whatever else is your favourite. There are lots of pretty yarns to look at on there. :)

Mulberry silk yarn

I meant to show off these silks ages ago! Pretty recently I was lucky enough to get a small box of finely spun, pure Mulberry silk lace yarns into my possession. They will eventually be dyed (I am guessing once I get back to the UK) and will be so perfect for lace projects! I will definitely have to keep at least some of it to work on a pretty shawl or something similar. :D

Additionally I just ordered more sock yarn in my 'normal' fibre base as well as a 100% Superwash Merino fingering weight yarn, which would work for socks, but would also be ideal for other projects (As usual, I am thinking lace again). All of these fibres will move with me to the UK in now less than two weeks!

Just one more week at my job as well, so this is really the time to get nervous. Having said that, I am surpirisingly calm, after I realised that packing shouldn't take me all that long I am actually just really looking forward to my move and to getting slightly more settled. :)
