Lulu was very helpful when photographing my stash. She kept a close eye on the layout of skeins, investigated the tubs to make sure I hadn't missed anything, and still managed to prove that she's still the prettiest piece of fluff in the house.
I was weak, my friends. Yes, I know, quelle horreur yada yada yada. I logged on to Kpixie to procure the Happy Hooker for a friend's birthday, and of course, to justify the overseas postage I had to add one or two morsels to the order.... basically, it's Mim's fault. Check out the most awesome sock pattern I have ever seen. I MUST MAKE THESE SOCKS. So I've purchased the pattern, and because they look so good in the grey, I ordered a couple of skeins of LL in Pewter to make them. And possible a couple of skeins of the Vera colourway. But I can neither confirm nor deny that at this stage.
I had huge fun with the stash flashing - I got lots of lovely compliments on my stash, and I got to drag Dave over to several sites to prove that my stash is, in fact, PUNY. PUNY I TELL YOU. I could tell he was quietly impressed. Or terrified rigid, it was difficult to tell.
And you all have such great stashes! I loved peering into other people's stashes with voyeuristic intensity - it's fascinating, like other people's bookshelves.
Just went to see V for Vendetta - I loved it, it was huge fun, and intelligently written and directed. And I may just be able to forgive Natalie Portman for her part in the Star Wars Travesty (oops, Trilogy).
Good thing for the day: Steamed Vegetarian Buns for lunch.
Bad thing for the day: Dave insists we spend some holiday time cleaning the place up a bit. Killjoy.
