I’ve been busy knitting away on deadline items. For most of the week my spinning mojo seemed to have deserted me. To nudge things in the right direction, I brought out a bag of fluff I’d been saving for a special occasion: Teal Deer – 75% merino, 25% silk, the December 2012 club offering from Southern Cross Fibre.

He said, “Can I try a nibble of that to see if I like it?” He ate 4 pieces. Fabulous!
