1. I went out shopping today, specifically to buy the gorgeous crocheted dress that's being sold in Coles of all places. It's completely sold out online but there were heaps at Burwood. I bought it in black and in white and made a brilliant discovery.
It's not crochet. 5 smugness points to Gryffindor!
2. My lovely friend Ros read my last post and suggested I try out her spare DyakCraft interchangeable needle set instead.
I haven't been brave enough to try them yet but they are the most beautiful needles I've ever seen. They're chestnut for mercy's sake!
I'm still not sure if I should thank Ros or be afraid.
3. My mum bought me a book of short stories but decided to start it herself (BIG surprise).Apparently it involves knitting, and Mum was telling Da and I that the first story was so funny, and how much she was enjoying it. Mum looked at me and said "Apparently she's a very famous knitter, you've probably heard of her, oh what's her name again?". That's when I realised she meant Stephanie Pearl-McPhee.
My mum bough me a Yarn Harlot book, but I don't think I'll be seeing it for a few days.
It will be a small cushion.
