White Gum Wool

Oh, check out this glorious stuff !

I came across this site by following something or other. As you do.

And the totally sustainable wool thereon is SO beautiful that I have bought three large balls of fingering (as seen above) with which to make a lovely shawl as an entry for Geelong’s new competition – the one that used to be the Scarf Festival but is now much bigger and moneyed up ! I was fairly disappointed last year when my entry didn’t rate a mention: I’ll see if I still have a photo (brioche again, it is) …

I’ve JUST begun. I was ordered by the marvellous Nan, whose sheep station it is at White Gum Wool, to send her a photo of my practising brioche because I haven’t done any for yonks; and I had to apologise because it was such a small bit:

 

but I’m not even that far so far … erhm, not even as far advanced as that, so far. :)

Madly in love with this project. And there’s no point your screwing up your face and saying “Yes, but you were with your last one – and look what happened to that !”, because I gave you the very real reasons. Not one of which applies here. So there !
