Beating the winter blahs
My knittyboard secret pal sent me a great package a few weeks ago - I already showed the yummy yarn, but there were many more goodies in the box:Dark chocolate with a kick!
Notecards in tropical hues!
A sheep scrubby!
Some sweet smelling soap!
And a handy carrying case!! Of late, my purse has taken on black hole like properties, so this is being used to store all the items that usually settle on the bottom - like pens and keys.
A few months ago, I bemoaned the difficulty in finding a suitable place for my ballwinder and swift. I realized that the solution was sitting right in front of me:This chair has the added bonus of being unsteady enough that the cats won't jump on it when I am winding yarn.
This weekend I wound this funky yarn (dyed by the woman behind Knitwerx.com, which sadly seems to have gone offline)
Aren't the colours great? And look at the nice short colour intervals (is there a more technical / elegant term for the distance between colour changes?)
I think that this yarn is crying out to be knit into Monkey Socks - the perfect antidote for the grey and brown colour scheme that is also known as the month of March. I'm on call for the ICU right through February 29th, so once I wake up/get home from the hospital on March 1, I'm casting on!
