Back again

Hmm I thought Id just put something in today,maybe I just want to talk! It feels like rain coming in but I think its a drought cloud that promises but declines to produce! Theres a coolness already as though its already dropped it moisture someplace!
Been home for an hour and just chilling out with a coffee I shouldnt be having! I really should be checking my Oasis account but I think Ill do some study tonight and get an idea started for esssay,set up the cover sheets etc then spend weekend doing the fun practical stuff,itd be nice to get a good night sleep so I can feel top of the world on Saturday!
Im spinning some luscious Bunny BFL Silk from Ixchel Fibres for the Teabox that coming my way very soon,I hate to part with it but I know something just as lovely will come along and if I can enjoy spinning this and giving it away Ill have some room.I really should put up some stuff on Rav,really need to get house organised,its disgustingly scruffy!
The long awaited CSM  or Auto Knitter from NZ ,is arriving by air shortly so Ill be able to turn out some socks and clear more room though if I get good at this machine Ill have to buy another chest of draws to store them.Im only using this machine for the coarser yarns like opal and the standard yarns like Patons leaving the yummy STR issues for handknitting!!!
Im hoping there ll be instructions in the box....
Isnt this lovely,I paid a lot for these and only have two colours left and the Ebay supplier, the only one who could send to WA hasnt got any for sale! I did have them in the ground but they werent doing  very well so potted them up.Im hoping to get a red and yellow ones so am very keen for this seller to open up again!!
Anyhoo I off!

Ive just checked into the ISE9 Blog and everything hunky dory there and also a link provided to a contest being held by this talented lady  I love the prizes and of the cute tape measure are beautiful!!
I'm planning a Travelling Woman Shawl this time around and am waiting for a ball of sock wool from Jimmy Beans .I really hope it gets here soon as I need to start it pronto so I can give it some time before the pressure gets going for my essay,a big 200 word one !!
I'm also going to do this shawl for my Mum in some handspun suri I also bought from the Alpaca Shop,its a gorgeous silver blue,pity I didn't spin it myself but Mum wont mind!!A big Happy Bday to you Mum for today too!!!! I might start it this evening with a glass of wine on my front veranda!!! I wonder if some beads might look good!!!
