Haven't shown you a picture of Trudie for a while, so I thought you'd like to see how she's coming on. Back and one front finished (well apart from an inch of the front). I love the way it's going, such lovely swingy yarn - I want to knit more with this! It winds up beautifully, feels so luxurious and is, I think, quite a bargain considering you're getting 100g of pure hand-dyed silk. And I personally know the people who dye this stuff, and believe me, they are every bit as lovely as their yarn!
But I am feeling a bit ill at the moment. Startitis is very bad. Quite the most severe case I have EVER had. And that's saying something. You see, I ordered this book and oh dear oh dear oh me. It is wonderful, there are probably only 3 things in it that I don't want to knit. (What is with that lace peignoir thing?). I have the yarn in the stashbasket for many of the projects and can feel myself slipping under the cover of the book just to check on my tensions.... And just incase you too might be tempted, The Book Depository offer free delivery to anywhere in the world.
There really is no hope for me.
I have absolutely no will power.
I am a bad, bad woman.
(No, I am a good, good woman with a slight yarn, book and casting on problem.)
