Woolly Mail!!

Yesterday was very exciting in woolly mail terms. First I got my Bendigo Woollen Mills sample card, so I can order the wool for the Must Have Cardi.

Lots of fondling fun was had.

Then I got a parcel from an Etsy seller (Twistedharefiberarts) with some lovely sock wool and some very pretty stitch markers. (The pic of the stitch markers is dreadful, but it’s the best my phone camera can do. I might have to start using a proper camera)

The sock wool is lovely. It’s called “Pocket full of Pansies” I can’t wait to get started on it. Unfortunately there’s not quite enough for a pair of knee socks, but I’m still having loads of fun choosing a pattern.

The current sock-in-progress is coming along nicely.

I’ve set today aside as a study day, and I’ve found I can read and knit at the same time.

A very handy skill.
