Thank-you all so much for the messages of sympathy about Non. I've seen it written many times before that messages like this help, and now I've experienced it for myself. They really have helped, even though many of them made me cry again. His funeral will be later this week, so posting will be sporadic once again.
But onto happier news. Postie, recognising my sadness, has been very kind to me today. Remember I was looking for this book so I could knit myself a Klaralund? Well, a very kind lady in America sent it to me. And guess what everybody - I love it! And guess what else - I want to knit pretty much everything in it. I am a lost cause - I so hope that a Noro stockist or two will be at Ally Pally because I can see I'll be buying lots and lots and lots! I have started saving like mad and so far have enough to buy about 4 balls of Silk garden! How to earn more money? Anybody know?
I could start selling jam I suppose - my latest craze! (Not sure about posting it though!)
And Good Old Postie brought this today as well. I've wanted a decent sock book for some time, and blimey, this is certainly decent! Hey and guess what? I want to knit nearly everything in it. Just for a change!
Of course my next quandary is which yarn to use - have just grabbed these from the top of the basket. More lurks below I'm sure and more hides in one of the several other places that I secretly hide yarn!
So go on, which should I start with? Haven't cast anything on for ages now and I need to do something productive!
Oh yes, and I forgot to say, the fudge competition. I asked eldest son to pick a number between 1 and 21 inclusive (fortunately he knew what that meant and didn't need it explaining) . So, drum roll please......
Number 20, come on down!!!! (Lesley that's you, I had to laugh, all that creeping worked, even though he didn't even read it!)
Will probably do another thing like this in the holidays. I love making sweets! Almost as much as I love eating them.
