A parcel arrives

Tonight I arrived home exhausted after 2 days of trauma with Rosemary who had a really bad accident on her cycle, no other vehicle was involved, just tram tracks, to find a package arrived from America. My Secret Pal has sent the Nora Gaughan booklet I wanted and love along with some wonderful Alpaca and Cotton yarn in a beautiful blue along with a pack of chocolates with caramel. Photographs have been taken and I promise, promise, promise as soon as I am less tired I will sort out getting them on here, promise.

Well yes, the front was done and then the back, then I unknit most of the front and redid it. I have started the neckband but I am saving it to take to the Rowan coffee morning at John Lewis next Saturday. I have finished another pair of socks and carried on with the simplest cardigan in the world aka Windsor. It was plain before I started it but I even forgot to divide for the pockets and couldn't be bothered to tink it so it is even plainer. Has anyone noticed a certain dearth of photies? No? Good. Well it's because I am using a laptop and have not yet sorted photo adding.
Today i have been mostly wrestling with brambles at the bottom of the garden. At least I didn't find an enchanted castle....just a frog. The plan is to grow vegetables in that area but first the hard work as it is rather overgrown.

Just one week later

Last Sunday I wrote that I wanted to knit Stockport (you need to scroll way down and you still won't be able to see it because of the arty photograph) from the new Rowan magazine but needed to acquire 6 balls of Cocoon. Done it! Six of Mist a lovely soft blue snaffled from ebay. It arrived so quickly and is knitting up just as fast. The front is already done. Yay!
