I love it.
But this Monday was even better than all that times 5.
The Postie brought me a little parcel of squishy loveliness.
I only ordered these the other day from Rosie's Moments.
This is 50% Merino 50% silk. The colour is garden flowers.
It will be a gift, once knitted.
It came with a lavender bag and this cute little sheep progress keeper.
This skein is 70% superwash Merino, 20% Yak and 10% Nylon.
It will be knitted into socks for the SO, I did tell him that it was Pink and Purple and I am sure there was a look of relief when the parcel was opened.
I am itching to get them cast on but have resigned myself to knitting through the sock WIPs first.
I have 7 pairs on the needles, my fuzzy ones and 6 pairs for Fran. They are to be part of her Christmas present, and the start of a new Tradition, I have got them all to the start of gusset increases so it will be a fairly quick job.
I have been galvanised into this plan of action by a new Craft Along. I have been watching The Project Bag podcast and Gemma has started this off to help her work through her own WIPs.
Just what I needed to get me focused and pointed in the right direction.
This has to be a quick visit ,coffee break, as I still have the bathroom to bottom and another load of laundry to do. I would normally leave it till I could peg out but the forecast is pretty dire and it is all the sofa throws and cushion covers. I have no room to keep those bulky items except for the bathroom or utility room floor. That is so not going to happen.
See you tomorrow, all being well.
