... when you tidy up! I cleared out the ottoman today, er, one of the ottomans (ottomen?). This is full of cake boards and boxes, and ribbons and a bit of fabric and a big carrier bag, tied neatly at the top. Couldn't remember seeing this bag so imagine my ecstatic joy when I untied it and discovered this little lot. Woopee doo daa!!!
It's mostly double knitting (oh how I love double knitting) and is a mixture of Rowan and Colinette. There's also some Hipknits, Hand Maiden, Koigu and some very pretty hand-spun stuff. Yummy scrummy! Of course now I just want to knit something with it all - any ideas? Think I might just browse Kaffe Fassett's pattern library and decide on something.
Because you know I have vowed to cast on 4 things this holiday.
One thing has already been cast off and another is very close so things are looking good for number 3 on the list.
I'm going away for a couple of days now to mum and dad's. Will get lots of knitting done there - so will have loads to show you when I get back - scarf, amazing painting, new arrival, more jam and a cake or two (but not the edible sort).
Be good. And don't forget to tidy up, it's amazing what you might find!
