Just spent way too much on this website. Noro for me and Mum, debbie Bliss Soho (in picture) which I hadn't seen before to make another felted bag out of and some 4mm bamboo needles plus cornelia smelia's first noro pattern book. I know I managed not to buy it at Johnh Lewsi but it was cheaper on this site amd I had 10% off. I know that's no excuse but, hell.


I have a new love affair - with Noro. I was in John Lewis last night positively drooling over their meagre selection and the patterns books that go with it. I quite astonichingly DIDN'T buy anything I hadn't gone there for (needed yarn to start kaffe fasset project) so didn't get the three pattern books I wanted. The thing is, I only really want about 2 patterns from each. And the yarn is soooooooo nice. And they've got it with the debbie bliss maya which is also mega yum. I actually started to convince myself that, hey, £8.50 isn't so much for 100g of chunky yarn when you think of the quality.

Am off to ebay to see if anyone insane is selling it off cheap. If anyone knows of any good suppliers let me know.

Monday bloody monday

Have had a minging day. The whole cutting down on medication thing has been a bit of a poo and today I had to leave work early because I couldn't take all the extra emotion I was swimming in. So am going to go back up to 40mg and just tell Dr P that I'll try again in three months.

So back to the weekend I started the first pair of socks I've knitted myself since taking my part in the two-needle revolution. Am half way through the second one now (the one I've knitted is the one on the right foot in case anyone is in any doubt). It's regia yarn in a colourway I hadn't seen before from Liberty. I realllllllllly like the colours and have a jumper pattern from a french magazine with kind of ribby ruffles on cuffs and collar. Is on 3.25mm though and I get easily bored at that size.

My business ambitions continue... am trying to raise money by selling stitch markers on ebay. Check out…
