Wow! I seem to be quite the chatterbox this week…. I had meant to mention in my previous post, but had procrastinated to the point where it had to be done separately. I recently went through my stash – which is shameful – not large, but some borderline ancient items, and after picking some items out for my Nan, still seemed in need of thinning. So, I have a virtual garage sale going on HERE Seller ID: parkerandpenelope), if you might be interested in some yarn, bamboo needles, patterns and even some of my other favourite hobby, counted cross stitch. On the knitting front: My August socks are half done – I am so pleased with how the pattern has come out and hope to share a finished pair photo with you next week. And I have been dithering about trying to find the perfect yarn for a NON-SOCK Kal (can you believe it!?) and am now anxiously awaiting some Tilli Thomas silks for the “Simple Knitted Bodice”. My LYS has some gorgeous Estelle aran 100% silk that I am looking at for another “Sizzle”. The Mystik was an OK substitute, but lacked “body” so…. This glorious “Eye Candy Friday” picture is courtesy of my “Vegetarian Daughter”, Jena (one of my daughter’s oldest and dearest friends) from a recent trip she took to the Niagara region of Ontario. Thank you Sweetie – makes me happy every time I look at it :)!
