The post where josiekitten looks slightly shamefaced!

A squishy parcel arrived at school today - the yarn I ordered on Sunday from Modern Knitting. They have such a brilliant service! I opened it so that I could admire it at various points during the day! Michele asked me to knit her Dad some more socks, so I ordered 'Orange Spice' from Schoppel Wolle, and 'Landscape Earth' from Regia.

My creation

I'm not sure where the 3rd ball came from - it fell into my basket at the checkout! It's 'Zauberball' from Schoppel Wolle, in the shade Fuchsienbeet. The colours are a mix of vivid purple, pink and orange, and I'm holding Jominx fully responsible for this purchase. She showed off her stash recently, and also started knitting a pair of socks in the same colourway, and stashbust or no stashbust, I just couldn't resist! Maybe as it's the start of Lent, these are the equivalent of my pancakes, and no more goodies now 'til Easter!

The Zauberball is just too nice *not* to buy it. :-) I'm planning a purchase of my own soon!
