Let us be happy for Hedgie...
Hedgie has found a family
Good night, Hedgie!
Look who was all posing for the camera this morning. "I'm ready for my close-up, Mr. de Mille."
I finally got that hedgehog stuffed, sewn up and delivered to its happy new owner. It was on her bed making nice with the other cuddly pals when she got home from school. And then I washed a few sweaters with a Lavalan soak in the washer and spin cycle. Sure beats handwashing! The shocking-pink has been washed and blocked, now drying. The merino came out even softer (happy sigh) after the wash, and the cables relaxed in a pleasing manner. Now if the weather would just hurry up and cool off already.
Been getting some yummy things in the mail lately. I think I mentioned that I have a nervous tic when it comes to merino. My finger tends to stab the "Buy Now" button reflexively. Elann posted this bulky Mondial Kross wonderfulness, and they had an eeny bit of camouflage colourway. Stab. Now I have it, and a book of super fun patterns to go with. Perfect for Instant Knitting Gratification. The back is done already. The sunshine on this photo makes it look a bit lighter than it is.
Been puttering away at the alpaca shawl, especially before bedtime. Nothing makes me snoozy like counting lace at bedtime.
Promised the black Katrina sweater that it would get some hands-time this evening.
Webs had a big end-of-summer sale last month, and I couldn't resist the Rowan Chunky Print (quelle deal!!!). I ordered five balls of "Pit" (deep brown) several weeks ago, and when it came, I had to get some more. The more came this morning, along with "Girly Pink" for the girly, of course. She wants a bulky poncho. Mmmmm....more IKG!
