What else has been happening? It's hard to write a zippy blogpost when you've spent the last couple of weeks mooching around the house...... I unexpectedly won an auction on ebay the other day and am now the proud owner of 48(!) balls of Cleckheaton Country 8ply (dk). It was really cheap, but that is a heck of a lot of yarn..fortunately, it is all white, so I'm going to have plenty of yarn for playing around with dye! My mum (Hi Mum!) is also keen to help me with this overabundance of yarny goodness. Oh, and Mum? There is no way in HECK/HELL/WHEREVER that you are going to even TRY to give me money for this yarn. Good, I thought we'd get that argument out of the way now. Heh.
I have started a new project - I am knitting the Kimono Shawl from Folk Shawls in beautiful laceweight from Sweet Georgia, in a subtly variegated burgundy colour. So. Soft. I have paused in writing this post no less than twice just to pet it. Pics tomorrow!
Thank you all for your get well soon wishes - and thankyou mrspao for my e-card - it was huge fun!
Oops - make that three times to stop and pet the knitting.
