Of course the answer is no. Especially not after Sam and Josh’s gorgeous present yesterday. However… I went to visit my friend Maxine today, who is the co-owner of my utterly delightful LYS Marmalade Yarns. She had a little something for me for my birthday. See! I told you I was spinning it out!
While there I saw THIS!
Is that or is that not autumn in a ball of yarn? All those gorgeous russet tones, but also still some green all set against blue skies. When I saw the shop’s sample shawl (in my favourite ever lace leaves pattern) I was sold. They’re both 400m approximately so it’ll make a lovely big shawl. I’ve clearly got a knit shawls mojo at the moment!
My little gift was this fabulous card, which has inspired me to make some sort of wall thing I can display nice cards on and a cute little handbag sized reusable shopping bag. Or if you’re me, project bag. 😄
Fab eh?! D sadly had to go to a funeral today and afterwards
he met a lady he knows who told him that her sister in New Zealand reads this blog! I’m sorry I don’t know who it is to say hello because man like it didn’t occur to him to ask for a name! But how amazing. It really is a small world.
Before I go and do a little light knitting I must show you the new yellow nail varnish!
Feeling a bit frivolous tonight. I just declined to accompany D on his mission to buy an iron. Ours blew up today and although I’m pleased he wasn’t hurt, as I never use it unless I’m steam blocking something, it isn’t a matter of much interest to me!
