Cheesy yes, really. You won't get that stuff at Hobby Lobby, or Joanns, or wherever you lot get yarn!

Have a chat to me about it sometime Smiley I can get good deals at the local yarn factory, but usually only limited colours. Or you can buy it online (a couple of links: http://www.thewoolcompany.co.nz/Products5.aspx?CategoryId=37 http://www.handknitting.com/Supreme_Possum_Merino_Sport_Fingering_Yarn_p/spmsport.htm) It's not the cheapest, but it's primo stuff, light and super-warm, and you help our native creatures by killing the evil, evil, possums!

OH, what lovely things you sent, jemimah. The dragon hoopla is delightful, and I don't even LIKE dragons.

Ah! This makes much more sense, now...I was thinking when I saw the yarn earlier, Do they actually BREED them in NZ?! And who has to harvest the fiber from those mean little animals?  Cheesy  So, good, the possum yarn industry is the result of species population control rather than proliferation.

Yes indeed, it is a way of making a wonderful product out of one of the worst ecological disaster species here. Our possums do have very nice fur - it's hollow, so very light and warm. And btw, it is a different species (Australian brushtail possum) from the North American possum. I'm happy for Craftsters to PM me if they want to know more about trying it.

And thanks everyone for the compliments! Smiley

I hope it's okay with our organizers if I post this here Smiley. These projects were a spawn of something from this gallery so I figured it would be alright.

onegroovyday and I like to chat and email pictures and messages back and forth while we work on our swap items. Well, she sent me a picture of the bowl she made for sheepBlue in this swap and I immediately demanded that she make me one! Actually, I gushed over it so much that she kindly offerred to create my own for me Smiley.

It arrived today and it's AMAZING!! The colors and size is perfect and I really couldn't love it more. It's going to be used to organize all of my sewing stuff that's currently floating around my desk and constantly getting misplaced.




And as if that weren't enough, she also made me a little hoopla that I've been wanting FOREVER!!



Plus I also got some mini chocolate eggs! My favorite.

Thank you for the generous gift, onegroovyday!
