Imagine that it is Tuesday…

Show & Tell

Postie has been! He brought me a parcel from Wales…

Art yarn in Madras, for my Clapotis. Just look at that Turmeric yellow!

And, seeing as I was ordering anyway, and I couldn’t find any DK in the house…

A skein of Jitterbug, in Velvet Leaf. This is for a Norie hat that I want to make. And, speaking of Jitterbug…

Another creative pack of Jitterbug scraps for my blankie. This last I was in two minds about. I was always aware that Jitterbug was a very heavy sock yarn. What I had not twigged, until looking for Norie materials, was that it is more like a DK weight yarn! No wonder those patches in my blankie are so very dense. But, seeing as I already have some in the blankie, and the colours are always (usually! not so impressed with this pack.) so wonderful, I thought I’d continue to treat the blankie to the occasional pack of Jitterbug.

There’s a method to my madness… I’m planning an all-Jitterbug blankie at some stage. Probably not a domino square one, maybe something stripey. Maybe even in Tunisian crochet! Anyway, every scrap of the Jitterbug will be put to good use.

Well. That’s a large hole made in my Matchless savings!

Now, you must excuse me… I need to wind some yarn before I go out. The question is… Jitterbug, or Art? I guess that answer is needle-dependent. Of course, Discipline may yet exert itself… I can always take the ferry socks with me – the ribbing is almost completed and I am ready to gallop down the leg.

No. You’re right. That’s never going to happen now I’ve seen those colours, is it?

December Reflections 4: Red

Nature is red in tooth and claw and nobody knows this better than a person that shares their life with cats… At 4 am today there was a thud, followed closely by another thud, and another. It sounded curiously like a rather fat cat pouncing on something. “Has Dusty brought some prey in?” The Crooked Man went to investigate. Dusty had indeed brought some prey in and when he saw his dad, he let goContinue readingDecember Reflections 4: Red

In a pickle

Shops are now open to sell anything on their shelves and we are no longer restricted to purchasing whatever some government official has deemed to be “essential”. We popped out to The Shed yesterday as I needed some parcel tape to package up some things that I need to be posting off. We had to hunt, it wasn’t in the Stationery section, but we eventually found it in the DIY area. It’s not of greatContinue readingIn a pickle

    Next time I’m in the mill shop I’ll have a look at the discount section for you, I’m sure I can find some jitterbug in there!
