It felt so good to get back here last night, and more to the point, to be made to feel so welcome, that I had a crazy thought. Over-the-top-crazy. Why not post every day up until the christmas break? I'm serious. Okay, I know it's unlikely I'll pull it off, especially as I've been averaging about three posts a month. But I did feel a frisson of excitement at the thought...and I do like a challenge. Maybe this way madness lies, but it would be a fun way to round off the year.
Have you come across Malabrigo yarn? The worsted is handspun and hand dyed and is so squishy and soft you can't help but love it. There's an extraordinary selection of colours to choose from. This is Tuareg. I have just one skein and I think it's destined to be a neckwarmer. Pattern to be decided. Perfect for keeping the drafts at bay.
I also have three skeins of Stone Blue and I fancy one of these. I think I'd have some left over, too. I should add that this has nothing to do with christmas presents. This is self-indulgent knitting, just for me.
Did you know Julia's back? She's doing her wonderful advent event again. Go and say hello!
