Hey Royal Mail, why don't you go screw yourselves?

Fucking c*nts.....I wish, I just wish, there was some alternative. I hate them. I goddamn hate them. Every single chance they get to misinform and waste my time...AAAARRRGGHHHHH!

Happy thoughts. Calm thoughts. Kittens. Balloons. Buttons. Ahhhhhh, buttons.

Look what arrived (at work of course - this is the only place post is getting to me at any more).

Loads of lovely buttons. It is the Ravelry button group travelling button box. I had it once before a few months ago and it has been round the world since then before coming back to me. Anyone can join so hop on the discussion board if you fancy it. These are what I took out:

And what I put in, including some lovely handpainted ceramic ones:

There have been more stitchmarkers being produced too. Green and purple themes. The green ones are as an angel since their real partner bailed on them.

After some frustration and a certain amount of panic (stitch holder sprung open anyone? Eeek)

The bad cardi is done! I've got buttons on order from Woolly Workshop so it won't be properly finished til the IKnit day but the body is all done.

I'm really happy with it!

I've also been working on a present for my sister and a christmas present too! I know it's a bit early but I'm wondering about how many presents to try and knit this year vs buy and thought I'd do this one while I felt like it. I've also started a jumper for Pooch which I've had the yarn for since SkipNorth 2008. I love it and Pooch has solemnly promised to love it too and not tumble dry it. I'll be taking it on the train to the KCG Directors meeting on Saturday.

The green is greener than it looks - a kind of moss green which matches his lovely eyes.
