I found my “Soul Yarn” on the weekend at the Wonders of Wool market in Wellington…

One beautiful ball of rainbow goodness is wonderful…

But two is better!

I’m back from a wonderful, incredibly busy, exhausting, rejuvenating two week trip to Wellington with an extremely depleted bank account and bags of gorgeous wool. 

How is May treating you?  Hope you’re good,

lots of love XXX

    Hi Raymond’s mom

    I read your posts and from time to time get into your calm colorful world,
    I love it!
    I come from a very tight and pressured country, Israel, and your life seems to exist on some other planet, and it sounds so good:-)!
    keep colour our world, many thanks for your sharing

      Well, I must say this wool is just gorgeous!!! I can’t wait to see what you’re going to do with it… May, apart from the weather, is treating me good here in France….and it will even better in a few days, as I’m getting ready for a special event.

  19. Pumpkin says:

    Rainbow skeins are “in” right now and it is embarrassing how happy that makes me! Any ideas what you might make out of that super lovely yarn?

  20. Di Childs says:

    I love your new yarn. I’m a fan of multicoloured yarns.
    Just now I’m knitting a chunky jacket in a multicolour, making a top-down cardigan for a friend’s baby and crocheting some table mats because our old cork-backed ones have gone very tatty.

    I send Best Wishes to you. Alexander sends his compliments to Raymond.

    Glad to hear you had a good time🙂 I’ve heard about the Wonders of Wool market and it sounds like it would be sooo fun to attend! Judging by the yarn I’ve seen people bring home, there is an abundance of yarny temptation there. I love the look of the rainbow yarns! Any plans for it yet?

  22. Melissa says:

    Hope you had a wonderful trip and didn’t spend too much money on wool. Glad to hear you are home safe and sound with KB.
