Yesterday was our fifth wedding anniversary. FL insisted on (a) wearing his kilt and (b) keeping it on all day even though his knees must have been freezing. I have no words.
While I am showing my incoming post…
I keep neglecting to blog about my Skein Queen Club yarn.
The November skein is called “Fairy Hoax” and the colour was inspired by the novel The Unseen by Katherine Webb. I am just about to start reading the book, which I reserved from the library. I’m not sure what I will knit from the yarn – it looks like it wants to be a delicate shawl. It has intriguing dollops of Donegal tweediness through it, which makes me think of insects trapped in a spider’s web. In a good way.
This is the December yarn, which arrived this morning. Look at those colours! Absolutely gorgeous, merino and silk. Again I am thinking something shawl-like, but perhaps cabley and oblong… more of a stole? Definitely inspiring. I’m so glad I signed up for this club again.
You can tell I’m a bit drifty can’t you? The Boy went home to University yesterday and The Girl goes back to London tomorrow. We’ve had a lovely quiet time of it, but I am starting to feel the need to get going on some major project or another. It’s been good thinking time.
