ok, so i have been a wee bit lazy about posting. i have, however, been busy!
Scarf of pea soup. the colour (as everyone secretly thought) has grown on me, and now i like it. I am so transperant!
Voila! needle case for irene (a the rate she's going it was desperately needed) before anyone asks, yes she likes pink.
I also (finally) finished my patonyle socks. Wonderful what a day of watching Red Dwarf 7 will do for your sock drawer!
And then SnB yesterday... ah my friends, memories are made of this! we have a full blown yarn swap happening! I gave jordan some bright red powder puff, and was rewarded with blue patonyle!!!!! hurrah!!! i was so excited you could have knocked me over and i would've bounced straight back up again.
I also swapped Taphophile (very unevenly) a ball of tiger stripe sock yarn for 9 balls of Katia!!! very very excited. of course, the projects are hazy but its so nice i feel enriched for having it near me.
She also managed to offload on me this batch of amazingly colourful yarn. Just to give some perspective, the big ball is bigger than my head.... im not sure what it is but i know many young children and am a sucker for variegation... Taph tried hard to send me home with my own weight in red Ack-rylic as well but i saw through her scheme! (im onto you woman!!) good contrast my foot! :p
And as luck would have it there is selected colours of cleckheaton studio 8 ply mohair 50% off at spotlight... no, really. i did need it. honestly! (oh you people have no faith!)
SnB was really really really fun, i havent smiled so much since, oh, the last one? Othlon loved the handspun, irene loved the needle case and a grand time was had by all! and in a joyful and appropriate turn of events, the next one is the day before my 21st birthday (best gift EVER!). For pictures of the yarn festivities, visit irene here! i had too many bags of yarn with me to carry a camera as well, lucky someone was organised!
And on that totally materialistic note, c'est tout!
