First frost of the winter iced the rooftops this morning; first time the flat's felt cold enough to have the heating on all day; first time I've got my head above water since last weekend... I had a busy working week punctuated by the annual visit to see my accountant, a book photo session and an evening in town with Liz. By the time Saturday arrived, I was ready for a trip to Stash Yarns for a little gentle knitting, tea drinking and nattering with the
usual suspects regulars.
Today, I'm attempting to make order out of the chaos that's my studio (guess what, no flat surfaces left to work on..) bribing myself with the promise of some knitting for myself this evening. I want to make another pair of these and had intended to use some brown Malabrigo
but I came across this skein earlier and changed my mind.
72m of Ruth's handspun merino - lovely and soft, perfect for wearing on my hands and it's won out over the Malabrigo. Ms Wormhead has a great hat design in the new Knitty - I love it (shame about my hat-wearing phobia...) as well as several of the other new Knitty designs including this and this. Oh, well, back to shuffling clutter...
