seeing red




I am getting a bit addicted to red and a certain wool label at the moment. There is one more ball in the mail too.  My first ball was from Rosered and the rest are just company really.  I am obsessed with the different hues and tones of the reds here.



My currently fondling obsession is the third one from the left  and although I have show knitting and a small toy to make I am tempted to cast on this shawl.

The lace weight at the far right may just become a featherweight.


My second show entry is complete and I am just over the hump with the third.  I was sailing along last night when I realised again how bad my pattern reading skills are - and had to unpick back to the start of the decrease.  Now I am doing the 'have I enough wool' fret.


My 3rd pair of socks for 2010 are coming along nicely and I am currently researching the next pair - as I did two for S.V. I think the next pair is for me again.  I am not sure whether to start the hard ones or not as yet.

I just could not resist the Sunny-boy bag from buttontree lane.  The print and the shape takes me back to my childhood.


Finally a hello from the kittens - Tom is just about disinterested in yarn and Po is still in love of heights.

The red yarn is just lovely...and your knitting for the show looks very nice, good luck at the show. Sunny boys, now that takes me back too, didn't you just love it when you got the "free one" stamp inside the pack and could go back to the shop and get another one for nothing.

Re the Fan - just knit faster, that'll ensure you don't run out of yarn!

Wonderful! All of it...the styles you chose to knit for the Show, the fact that you've done so much, the perfect colours, the speedy sock knitting (I'm so behind), and of course, all that rich redness.
