Can you see just how soft and cushy that yarn is? In case you're tempted, I'll remind you that it's from Great Northern Yarns. A restock is expected at the start of April, so you could treat yourself and get ready for next winter!
I had a bit of catching up to do with my Innocent Smoothie hats. I knit most of them last night while Mr JK and I were at a concert. The lights were left on enough for me to be able to see - most considerate. The man sitting next to me wasn't impressed however. I overheard him talking to other people in his group about how irritating it was!! My hands were pretty much in my lap while I was knitting on small dpns, so I was barely moving at all! As Mr JK (who can be relied on to give an honest view) didn't think there was anything wrong with me knitting, I carried on until I'd run out of yarn at the end of the interval, and then put my knitting away with a flourish!! Here are the hats of the week for weeks 15 to 20!
I had a couple of little packages in the post this week. The first was from girlontherocks - a sheep spinner's WPI gauge to help me work out what weight yarn I've spun ......
and a sheep needle sizer. They are so cute!
I also got 500g of undyed BFL fibre from Forest Fibres so that I can experiment with the ratios and tension on my spinning wheel, without using up my beautifully dyed fibre. They sell all sorts of wonderful accessories for spinners, so I'm sure that this won't be my last purchase from them!
This evening I'm going to sit down and crack on with my crocheted granny squares for the flood victims in Australia. There have been some pretty terrible scenes on the news this weekend of the aftermath of the earthquake and tsunami in Japan. I wonder if there is going to be a co-ordinated knitting relief project for the victims? How on earth do you begin to rebuild your life after something like that? It certainly makes you reasses what's important, doesn't it?
I don't think that I shared Mr JK's Valentine card with you. How's this for yarny love?
