Just in case I was feeling sad..........
This is all of it, unwrapped........*****squeees***** This is BFL, plied with gold thread, which gives a boucle effect, and it is gorgeous...!!!
Hardly little either.....A Noro book, with a pattern in that I'd been looking at on Ravelry, what a jolly good stalker my spoiler is!! Theres also beautiful ceramic buttons, some beads, personalised pencils (yay!!!), and beautiful pen and some gel pens and a notebook!!!!
I must have been a very good girl........what do you reckon?
Its that time of year again :(
I lost my babies to the madhouse again yesterday, after a lovely summer. Here's some pics of them, looking all smart and ready to go........

Secret plans and clever tricks
I woke up in the middle of the night on Tuesday, with a new hat pattern in my head and the idea of a perfect yarn to do it in :)
So here we go......this is merino/silk in the greens/yellows of my enchanted colourway, and I'll be plying it with jet black merino......
Look out for the new beanie pattern too....and of course it will be free for all, for personal use......

Lottie and Miffy came over yesterday, as did a lovely lady from Ravelry called Nikki :), and we did some dyeing, it was great fun!!! They came up with some lovely colours, and went away with bags of hand-dyed fluff :) I was totally inspired by something Miffy came up with and put my own "spin" on it today, calling it "Fruit Salad"

Urghblah......Mondays suck :(
Not having a good day sofar.....no no no I am not.....
I have a stinking headache, theres a pile of washing the size of a small African country waiting for my love and attention....
...and as for my boys...we'll not go into that...any other day it would be a piece of cake, but not today. Hmm, cake....
Add all this up to the comedown from a creative outburst, and we have an unhappy Sarah.

I absolutely love it, it is soooooo soft, and its bloomed to almost twice the size it was when I finished it last night!!!! I hav'nt got round to doing the yardage and WPI yet, but there is 160g of it.....and its roughly Aran....
Now, what to knit with it???
Or should I just keep it to stroke?
