Why I love my Husbeast so........

Today was one of THOSE days. Everything was half empty, a black cloud hung over me like a piece of annoying gum you can't get off your shoe......urghBLAH I set my FaceBook and Twitter statuses as....

"Dear Wednesday, I am sorry. It's not working out between us. It's not you, it's me....

......and also texted Husbeast the same, so he knew what a complete and utter waste of my time today had been.

.....he didn't read the "Dear Wednesday" bit...and I got a frantic phonecall asking me all about the text. Me being the black cloud fugged mess I was didn't click that he thought I was ending it all...doing a Cheryl Cole...
(who has just dumped her husband the footballer Ashley Cole, via text)
Well, when it
did click, it made me chuckle, and just like that, the cloud just blew away. It has left me dog tired though...

I love you Husbeast....for just being you......

Twisted Woolly Toppers :D

My friend WoollyWormhead is releasing (for pre~order) her 3rd book of awesome hats this week!!!
I am so excited for her!!!!
I will be doing a "feature" blog post soon on the book, kinda like a book review I guess, as I was a test knitter for a few of the designs....only I will be hugely biased as I am a crazed fan girl lover of her hats, and have been for years :D
In fact, if I even look at another hat pattern i feel disloyal....heehee

If you'd like to see the pictures of the first 5 designs, you can go over to her blog......

The digital version of the book will be £9, and there will be a free *bonus* pattern for all digital and print orders taken before 21st March 2010!

I know that I for one will be "virtually" camping out for the paper copy.....wearing one of my new hats of course ;)

BudgieBoo Handspun

I treated yself to some Polwarth~Bamboo in the "Budgie" colourway from Southern Cross Fibres last month, as a birthday present to myself.

I spun it into a 3 ply….no change there then….and the third ply is solid dark brown merino…..
My plan was that the darker ply would enhance the delicate colours and magnificent shine of the fibre…I am pretty happy with it ;)
There’s about 90g in this skein, its roughly 10wpi so a heavy DK/worsted weight, and approx 139yds/128m. The other skein is going to become a Marina, as it’s the WoollyWormhead Feb KAL on Ravelry :)
