The Clap WON'T beat me...

In fact, I have been kicking her ass this weekend. Nowhere in Central Bristol was able to furnish me with some 2.25mm needles to work on my Jaywalkers so I had to order some off Ebay - fortunately this seller is uber-speedy and I should be able to get to work on them by mid-week.

In the meantime, I turned my attentions to the clapotis. I have completed 10.5 of the 13 straight repeats, which means the end is nigh. I realised that the key thing slowing me down in this project was the stitch markers so I threw out the majority of them and just counted the stitches. I hope to give it away as a belated birthday gift over the May bank holiday weekend. And good riddance!

And I might have given in to the Cucumber Patch on Sunday afternoon. I blame Ysolda's gorgeous Rowan Polar knits for the extras in the order, on top of the Rowanspun Aran for Rogue. I am already thinking about Christmas knits - I want to show people have far I have moved on from the wonky chunky scarves I made last year!

And because I feel I have offered little with this update... check out Posh Yarn. Beautiful cashmere in delicious colours. Perfect gifts for lovely old Kelly. Buy now, send, send, send!

hi Kelly, first time I've seen your blog. There's a toy shop on Gloucester Road next door to a wholefood shop / cafe called La Ruca (right hand side going out, think the area's called Bishopston). They sell sock wool and needles and stuff.
Also have you tried Get knitted, mail order but based on Barton Hill Trading estate. they have open days.
