I have no idea what to call this post it's about everything really. First for my stash enhancement.
HandMaiden Sea Silk- I bought these because they were on sale and because they are so gorgeous. Perhaps I have a problem and am addicted to luxury yarns. I have to tell you that it's not doing much good for my bank account. I really need to go on a yarn diet and implement some self control or seek help. LOL.
I bought these for the next Tink Knits French Angora Lace scarf which I will have to knit when we get much cooler weather. The weather this week in Victoria and South Australia has been unbelievably hot. It has broken all records. And we have never had such low supply of water as we do now. The government as per leaves it all to the last minute to do something about our water crisis. Anyway to continue with my stash enhancement......this yarn I first laid eyes on Donna's site Random Knits. This yarn is 70% Cashmere and 30% Silk in chocolate it's a much richer chocolate colour in real life. I seem to have a thing for chocolate colour yarn, shoes and clothes lately I have no idea why. I am not sure yet what I will use it for but it will most likely be a scarf or shawl and of course for me. I don't think I could part with it.
These little soft balls of yarn Kim chose. He wants me to knit a pair of sock for him from them. I have yet to choose a pattern.
And now for my total and utter disappointment. You remember the gorgeous Artyarns silk Kim gave me for our anniversary. I finally chose a pattern to use them on and it's a total disaster. Looks much worse on the photo then it does in reality but not enough for me to continue. It doesn't do any justice to this majestic yarn. This has never happened to me before. I am really peeved to say the least. The black yarn you see is what I used for the lace cast on.
I haven't had the heart to frog it but frogged it must be and a new pattern has to be found.
My other crappy news is I am not sure if you remember but I have been complaining of a sore right wrist for a long time now and I finally did something about it and had it x-rayed and also an ultra sound done and found out that I have osteoarthritis and the report also says that I have considerable cartilage loss as well. So I am off to see a Specialist next week.
My Doc says I am too young to have it.....what can I say. I am upset and I hope I don't have to give up knitting, I don't think I can give it up. My DD said "what are you going to do Mum you can't give up knitting it's your life!".
And on that note I must finish this post. Wishing you all a wonderful weekend and happy knitting!
