Well, the weekend in Suffolk went as well as I expected. MIL loved the scarf. Much bickering and arguing took place. Gallons of wine were quaffed, the wind blew a gale and it rained pretty much all the time. A good time was had by one and all, and now it's all over. Thank goodness!
It's a crap weather day today. Dark, windy, rainy and stormy and the weather forecasters says there's more to come this evening. Marvellous...
To try and add a bit of colour to this otherwise gloomy day, I thought I'd share a few of the latest additions to my ever growing stash.
Here's what came in the mail last week from Sheepaints in Germany.
"Vergissmeinnicht" (which I think, is German for "Forget-me-not")
Next up, here's what I managed to get in the frenzy that was the Wollmeise shop update last weekend.
It's Sockenwolle 80/20 Twin in "Rhabarber" (Rhubarb) in the medium intensity. I consider myself quite fortunate to have managed to even get one skein of this as Wollmeise is so incredibly popular. The shop update was on a Saturday evening at around 8.30pm and by about 8.35, the shop was empty! I can honestly say I've never seen anything like it before. Ever! I put a few things in the shopping cart, and by the time I got to finally check out, the cart was down to only one item. Crazy! I totally love what I did get though so I'm very happy. This stuff is seriously gorgeous.
Finally, from the wonderful Skein Queen , here's a skein of Endure Sock Yarn in "Sweetbird".
Isn't it gorgeous?! Just looking at it makes me smile. It's like a little bit of Summer sunshine in a woolly sort of way :)
My day feels just a little bit brighter now. I hope yours does too.
