There have been sniffles and sneezes chez nous. What I thought was a hangover on Sunday (we won’t go into that) developed into a full-blown annoying cold. Annoying because it’s not quite bad enough to earn me time off work to stay home and knit all day ;-) I have been fighting the bugs with sudafed and strepsils, and when that didn’t work, red wine. I hope to be able to breathe again by Saturday.

In the meantime, what better to raise the spirits than some completely unnecessary stash enhancement (yes I know that word ‘unnecessary’ will surprise some of you, but remember, I am She-Of-Little-Stash)


I have been resisting the lure of new Seasilk colours for an entire month. Today I caved. It was inevitable really. Surprisingly, the colour is pretty true in this photo, my camera and I have been on interesting terms lately but really what was needed was for the clouds to go away and give me some light already. It will eventually be a flower basket shawl (see, SOLS doesn’t buy without a project in mind at least), but before this yummy yummy baby can grow up to be a shawl, I need to finish three other shawls which have been commissioned by the end of the summer.

I should be knitting.

But before I go, remember I said I really liked this month’s Spunky colour? Here ’tis! (some of it)


I still love the colours, but Coopworth is not the softest of wools so I’m pondering what I’ll do with it. It may end up in a felted bag or perhaps a cushion cover. What do you think?

Must go knit :-D
