|What I see from my kitchen window!|
I may not finish this post just now depending how long I can withstand the call .....the call that beckons me to go out...out in this blessed rain to breath,to sigh and enjoy what I call the good rain or as I always say to Sr P "La lluvia buena".
Later ... a bit later after my walk in the rain :-)
I am so excited!!! No, I am not going on holiday to Venice,Florence or Myanmar , as much as I would like to but I am waiting for a parcel to arrive very soon. Sr P has been looking at me rather strangely.....I actually suspect he thinks I am losing it !
I'm waiting for an order of yarn. Lovely home dyed yarn named Autumn and Lichen and all the way from Yorkshire. I nearly didn't order it you know when I saw the cost of postage to Spain which of course pushed up the cost of the yarn. However I just couldn't resist it and I have been really envious lately hearing about all the lovely yarns that other bloggers use, so I took the plunge. I also have this feeling in my bones that it is going to be utterly gorgeous.
My very first trial order is made up of :
|DK Bowland Autumn|
|DK Bowland Lichen|
|DK Bowland Natural|
All 100% Blue Leicester and hand dyed by Victoria at Eden Cottage Yarns.
It was really difficult to choose which yarn to order and it took me a long time to decide.
If you pop over to Annie's blog at Knitsofacto ,that is where I heard about Victoria and Eden Cottage Yarns. Annie interviewed Victoria,which you can read about here, and from that moment for me is when the temptation took over.
Many thanks for all your comments and for popping in to read my chatter. I read everyones' comments and reply to all of them....... in my dreams....sorry for being cheeky.....I really wish I could reply to them all.
However I heard in your last comments that some bloggers have a season for knitting and crochet,that some bloggers increase working on their craft in the Autumn,that I'm not the only one who sometimes gets a headache when drinking wine,that Autumn is creeping in fast over there in the Uk and Germany and that the leaves are beginning to change colour and its getting darker but its still hot and horrible in Florida and also still hot in Greece. That quite a few blogmates are taking part in the Autumn Glow swap and thank you to one blogger congratulating me on 200 followers. I know I'm at 200 followers but I think I'll wait to 250 to do my next giveaway. That way it is nearer to Christmas. I am also glad that my compliments to a follower has made her feel a great crocheter even though she says it was for just little while.
Finally I'll echo and totally agree with another blogger's comment that handmade is special!!!
Now then do I give in to crochet temptation again or do you think I should get on with some lesson planning??? :-)
Enjoy your weekend
