This is my latest acquisition from TheyarnpusherformerlyknowasBrooklynHandSpun - in the colourway Nemo. Isn't it beeyoootiful?? The photo is a little blurry, but this was the best shot I got of the colours. This skein doesn't actually want to be socks, I think - any suggestions?
My hips now have a blogstalker all their own. Check out yesterday's comments - Hi Obi Wan whoever you are! No Creme Eggs today, but Dave is taking me and my hips out for a swanky Valentine's Day lunch here - I think they'll find it an acceptable substitute. And no wrappers!!
The Olympic shawl continues - I have the hang of how the pattern is constructed now, and apart from two teeny errors which were easily fixed and nobody will ever know they're there, I promise, I'm sailing through this!
On a more serious note, I got into work yesterday and one of my teammates was just back from holidays. I asked her how her holidays were, and she burst into tears - her sister passed away two weeks ago - she had cancer. It wasn't unexpected, she'd been fighting it for over a year, but there's really nothing you can say in that situation! I settled for giving her heartfelt condolences, and intercepting other team members to let them know not to all go bouncing up to her demanding to know how her holidays were!
And, to prove just how short my attention span is - OOOOH! Dave just gave me my Valentine's Day present - SIX skeins of Koigu!! We don't get Koigu in Australia, I fell in love with these two colourways on a website, and Dave offered to buy them for me. Photos tomorrow! But for now I'll just sit here and caress my preciousssss Koigu.....
Good thing for the day: Did I mention I just got Koigu??
Bad thing for the day: I can't take my precioussss to work with me. They frown on yarn fondling while at your desk.
