phew!




and I managed to get a hair cut and an eyelash tint!
On a roll, baby, that's me!

Peace out,
Ms Spider xo

PS. Can't remember if i told this story, but the yarn was inherited from a woman who wasn't really, but was anyway, my grandmother. I had 20 balls of it and it had to be something special, which is probably why I persevered despite the whole 'rib' issue. So yes, this is for you Rae. Thought of you with every stitch.

    Aww, I'm susceptible to grandma stories, especially at present. What a beautiful jacket! (Looks like more than a shrug to me...did you add to it?)

    That is absolutely stunning. And a beautiful memento of your grandmother too.

    Unbelievably gorgeous - but why aren't you modelling it! A triumph or skill and persistance over boredom and rib!

    Gadzooks! I can't believe how rude I was on Sunday. I think you were out of the room when I asked what everyone's online names were as I mostly had no idea of real names! P**** is a name now indelibly written on my brain : ) I'm most sad that I missed the opportunity to be able to tell you how wonderful your dyed wool was/is on the matinee jackets that Taph knitted up. Loved, loving and love them. Thanks from Tilly, too.

    Hello! My name is Emily, and I wanted to stop by and let you know that I'm knitting with a skein of your hand-dyed yarn and I LOVE it! Some amazing Australian Fiber Fairies gifted me with a skein of "forecast" and I love knitting with it. Not to sound to gushy, but the colors are amazing, and I'm having a ton of fun waiting to see which pretty shade comes next. So, thanks! This yarn is awesome!

    Oh, and the cardi is amazing and beautiful. Did the ribbing drive you compeltely nuts? Safe to say that it looks glorious, though.

    Just fabulous, and such a gorgeous colour too. Great memento of a special person.

    And Im totally late with this comment but, eyelash tinting is SO worth it! That and eyebrow waxing / shaping. Worth. It.
