Not really here

I didn't intend to post today, but it seems that Blogger have just added an image upload feature, so I had to try it out. I guess it works; fab! I think I've got the alignment a little muddled though as I was trying to "tweak" it afterwards. Bad move.

Here for your delectation is a pic of my fabulous package of Clover silk yarn as it arrived from HipKnits:
A box of heaven
Plus I admit to buying yarn for Christmas projects already. Well it was going for a great price on ebay; what more incentive does a girl need?! It's a taupe ladder yarn destined to be a shawl type affair for a relative:
Yes, Christmas projects already!
I wore my grape top for the first time today - and have to admit to chickening out and wearing a camisole underneath. I can't be having my daughter's (male) teacher or the butcher staring at my lingerie now can I?! ;-)
I've finished the fronts of my peachy bolero and started the sleeves today. That Linen Print knits up sooooo quickly! Pics soon...

Wow! 'clover' is really beautiful! I'm still knitting with 'reef' and doing the front of the vest top. However... I HAD to start the book...dammit not only do I have loads of WIPs, I start a bloody book as well!
Glutton for punishment... except it's not punishment! more of a frustration- I need to become an octopus!

So that's where the other Clover went!

clover is such a lovely combination of colours. I've been knitting with some silk too and simply love it - happy knitting;)
