Could you be...

...the most beautiful yarn in the world? Gosh, I am in love. I spent most of the weekend frantically knitting a Kittyville hat for a friend's birthday tomorrow. But I realised I needed a break when one of the kitty ears got graft on the wrong way round. To compose myself, I headed to the bathroom with 2 pans, 3 packets of Kool Aid (2 cherry, one in a frightful blue flavour) and some leftover Debbie Bliss merino from a jumper The Boy had made. And two hours later...

I had this delicious yarn. It reminds me of some sort of candy. Gorgeous candy...

Sadly there's only about 50g of it. I don't know what it'll become - possibly some striped fingerless gloves? But I love it. And promptly hurried over to to search out more dyeable goodies...

Love is...

Modelling your girlfriend's stash busting knits of course. Please meet the ugly hat. Ugly Hat was born out of 2 balls of cheap acrylic from a charity shop and the Hot Head pattern from SnB. Despite it's dubious looks, it is terribly warm and fits giant heads such as mine and his. And it cost about 8p to make.

Rather adorably, I decided that they could be his and hers hats. Same pattern, but mines is made from pink mohair and bulky white acrylic. The couple who stashbusts together, stays together.

P.S. He was knitting while the first picture was taken :)

I'm Branching Out! I want the world to know...

This, my friends, is Branching Out. I find her drool inducingly beautiful. But only because she claimed so many of my tears.... here's the specs:

Pattern: Branching Out from Knitty

Yarn: Noro Cash Iroha in a sultry lilac, about 2 skeins

Time to knit? Not really sure, but a couple of weeks on and off

This was a great intro to lace knitting - it taught me stitches that I feared too much. It's soft and snuggly and I apologise for the bad images - they were taken in my garden on a very cold day when I just wanted to finish up and get inside!

I have got lots of knits to blog so I should really mosey along...
