Memoirs of a stash junkie

a.k.a the inane ramblings of a mind filled with fluffy stuff...

I have gallstones, it hurts. Therefore I don't have much to say other than moaning and groaning when i'm not taking the codine, and floaty spacey crap when I am!

Still, one can always find time to steal cool little fillers from other peoples blogs.

I shall be back when i'm not so incredible wiped out (which 48 hours without decent sleep will do to a person)

Reskein Queen

It's good for the muscles you know! Reskeining 40 odd skeins of yarn is knackering, but makes them look so pretty!

The shop was updated today, as usual the aran has flown, but theres still some lovely colours there. I'm really, really chuffed with the sock yarn too, you know you've got it right when you are seriously tempted to hide it all in your stash and sell none of it *grin*

So yes, go along and have a squizz! Nic's bags are on too, or rather one is, the other sold very rapidly. She's going to make some more though, so panic not!

Other than that, i've not been up to much. I'm making a hemlock ring blanket and it's just a great knit, nice and easy and it's going to be very snuggly and lovely. And the Cascade Ecological wool is just lush to knit with. Yum. It's grown a lot since this picture, but it resembles a bit brown blob at the moment so this is the best piccy of it.

In other knitting news, Julie and I are booked to go to the Stitch n Bitch day on the 10th november. We're going to make a weekend of it and stay in a youth hostel. One has to make oneself feel like a youth wherever possible!!!

Back later with knitty type stuff
