Toasty Buttered Marshmallow

Well what to say? Lots has been happening, and there are many WIPs at various stages - both knitting and crochet.

Here's one item - a knitted collar worked up in Colinette Silky Chic along with some Jaeger Matchmaker Merino and some hand-dyed superwash soft merino sock yarn.

It's as soft as butter, as squidgy as marshmallow, and as warm as toast - so I guess that's a Toasty Buttered Marshmallow!

The wristies to go with it are currently on the needles - they include some Regia sock yarn and Rowan Kid Silk Haze too. I'll probably put the set on Etsy when it's finished.

The hardest part of this was finding a button that I liked for it - why is that always the case? Any recommendations for really good button websites would be greatly appreciated!

The other news for today concerns my health again - the tachycardia has cleared up and I'm off the beta-blockers, but now I have shingles on my back. It's rather an extreme way of getting more knititng time don't you think?!

That collar is really gorgeous!

Glad to hear the tachycardia has cleared up - hope you're feeling completely better soon!

This is rather out of the blue, but I'm trying to find the September 2006 edition of the Sandra Knitting magazine. There's a lacey wrap sweater in there that I really want to knit and I can't seem to find a copy of that magazine!

Any chance you'd be willing to copy those pages and/or sell the magazine to me? I'll pay postage and a little bit extra!

Oh, goodness, look after yourself with the shingles and take time to recover. I know you probably don't feel 'ill', but take it from me - it really knocks the stuffing out of you. And if you don't take time to recover, chronic fatigue is a very real risk. :( That collar, on the other hand, is *beeee-youtiful*! I wish we had touch-o-vision, because I just want to pet it...
