Y is for...


What with travel, concert and rehearsal days to take time away, I only have 4 real days left to finish my Christmas knitting...

Things still to finish (or, indeed start...)
  • unmentionable pressie for DS
  • fish hat for J
  • golf club socks for DB
  • toy for DS's cat
  • hot water bottle cover for Mum
Why, oh why is it that all I really want to knit right now are socks for myself?
:: sigh ::

I have no knitting to show.  Nada.  Zilch.  Rien.  I'm a failure!  But my friends are not... In the space of the last two days, I've received a parcel from the US and another from Norway FILLED to the gunwales with goodies.  I am a lucky so-and-so, that's for sure!

nomilicious bounty

G, aka the lovely dizzybea, kindly sent over her pattern for some felted clogs, the pattern over which I have been drooling for a while... She also included two skeins of lovely LOVELY Knit Picks lace-weight yarn - 'Alpaca Cloud' in Peppermint and 'Shimmer' in Morning Mist and a tonne of chocolate... oh MY!  The yarn is so soft!  I'm now beginning to understand the frenzied love of Knit Picks I read about in teh Rav!

E, aka itisalwaysraining, sent me some of her home-dyed yarn. Can you believe she used beetroot for those marvellous pinks and oranges?  She also sent some Garnstudio Drops Alpaca in a beautiful deep purple, a divine little note-book and some more chocklit! 

So yes, in fact I can blame these two for my lack of finished pressies... I'm too busy savouring the delights of the cacao bean, thank you!

And if prezzies weren't exciting enough I nominated you for a Spreader of Love Award on my blog!

How about a transatlantic knit-a-long? Because I am way behind too and I don't have any travel or gigs to speak of!
Lucky you with all the yarn! Knit Picks is awesome. I'm going to have to get some of that peppermint lace weight!
