The Generosity of Knitters
This is a present sent to me by Lise in Montreal. I've never met Lise and I've never been to Montreal - to get a present from there has been very exciting. I'm not sure why I've deserved such a glorious gift (it came with a label attached saying that it was a present for me) along with lots of 4" squares. I am so lucky, thank-you Lise. It has already been wound into a ball and I'm about to dig out my 2.5mm dpns to cast on a sock - the pattern for which was included with the yarn.
This, of course, has done nothing whatsoever to alleviate the dreadful case of Startitis which I'm suffering. I cast on for a scarf this morning (whilst waiting for the kettle to boil), am just about to cast on a sock and also want to make one of those amazing little cup cakes on the front of Betz White's new book. Tonight. What? You haven't seen that book? It's great - I am now scouring the charity shops desperately seeking pure wool jumpers that aren't machine washable. They are proving very elusive at the moment, but I'm trying.
