Can't think of a title today...

Look at what Postie brought for me! Two balls of Noro for Lizard Ridge, the softest, squishiest scarf and some rather amazing popcorn covered in chocolate. All very, very lovely! Thanks to my Internet twin Clara (aka Working Mom Knits). The scarf is keeping me very snugly, the Noro will be knitted up before long and the popcorn, well, what can I say? It was pretty damn good!

This is the pile of squares (well, rectangles) for Lizzie. This top one is made from oddments of all the leftovers. I'm really pleased with the way it's turned out, it looks like it's a proper one. I've also managed another 'leftover' one which isn't quite as good, but it's going in anyway. I won't show you that one, just see if you can work it out when the whole blanket is done. Which will be quite a while again I think.

Kay Mason Dixon has sent me lots of American squares to go into the next wave of Oliver's Blankets, so work is starting on those in earnest tonight. In fact they're all laid out on my dining room floor now awaiting stitching.

Startitis loomed its ugly head yet again last night. Started on Saartjes booties for a friend who's just had a baby. These are quite the cutest little booties ever - and so quick! Don't suppose you'll count a pair of those as 2 separate finished objects eh Warren?!

Of course I'll let you count the booties as two items.

I expect you're getting excited now, with only 263 non-yarn-buying days to go.

(I'm assuming you'll go on the Saturday. Well, you won't be able to wait until the Sunday, will you?)

Now that's just cheating! Going on a non-yarn-buying stint and then getting Noro sent by a friend! Hmmmph! Lucy x
