Well, the fog didn't bring in Gary Oldman wearing pastry rolls on his head. It didn't bring any sun, either. It brought a string of rainy days, but that's all over now. Today we got this:
In other news, it's time for me to show off my recent stash enhancements! From the mail: I got some Peruvian Wool in violet heather to make a Ribby Cardi. From Phildar: I got a sweater's worth of Phildar "Kid Mohair" in Amande and a Kid Mohair pattern leaflet. And from Plassard: I got a sweater's worth of Plassard "Weekend", some Schoeller and Stahl "Punk" [with a name like that, how could I not?], a few skeins of Plassard "Rhapsodie" and a Schoeller and Stahl pattern book for Winter 2004/2005. I foresee imminent re-shuffling of my winter projects lineup yet AGAIN, but I can't help it! Me like new yarn, and me so fickle. And you know that I put together a mini slideshow of my latest stash acquisitions
for you, right? Go on...let's ogle the yarn.
I also decided to pull out some of my Lion Brand Kool Wool from the mountain I brought back with me
during my visit to the States last year, and bought some ball buttons so I can make the collar from Vogue Knitting's knit.1
mag. I've got everything all set out on a table and ready to go:
Cute, eh? I'd like to knit that little accessory this evening because i) it looks like fun to knit, ii) I'm eager to knit up that Kool Wool, and iii) it's freezing outside and my son likes to play in the snow. Send hot chocolate.
