No exciting knitting happening here
New needles

Firsts

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.

Woolly_handspun

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...

We've had a frantic clean up here today as well, in case baby O comes around (the dust!). Lots of 1824 wool leapt into my basket after you'd left stash; enough for a striped cardigan. Oh dear.

That yarn of Ruth's looks yummy! Good to see you at Liberty's - hope we'll see more of you.

I tried to come to Stash yesterday but the buses and trains conspired against me!

yey - Neon Rainbow will become something! And there was me thinking it'd be left loitering in the stash, coming out for the occassional cuddle....
