My not-so-Secret Pal has been at it again! Too hot and headachy to write much, but lookit the pretty things! Thanks Abbey, you're The Best! She's told me who she is (meh, it's nearly the end of November, and she slipped up with her name - was bound to happen eventually ;) So you can pop over to her place and say hi!
Good Knitting mag - love the top on the front cover - silk, no less! And the Cook's Illustrated mag is very cool, I'm really enjoying reading it - the hand-drawn illustrations are quite stunning. Very interesting information and recipes, too.
Special treats for Lily .... although Aussie Quarantine / Customs took out the doggy biscuits (made from animal products).
Highly COOL Knitting Calender. Haven't opened the daily cards yet, that will be a treat once I've finished moving...
FUNNY Post-It notes (check the close up), lovely skin cream stuff, and 'Lady-Like Rosebud Mint lip balm' - perfect!
Mine, mine, mine, not sharing, nuh uh, no way. MIGHT let people fondle it under close supervision ;) Secret Pal tells me she has some in the same colourway (Dream in Color - SMOOSHY sock yarn, Beach Fog), so we can compare our finished objects!
Progress on Sherwood - not a great pic, I know, but I've divided at the armholes, and am nearly up to the shoulder shaping on the back! My sister and hubby and nephew Ben arrive in Canberra tomorrow - and it's too bloody hot to knit :p Doing what I can at nights. At least I can try it on the boy himself soon!
Didn't have much of a Jejune Day today - not really possible with a move a few days away - we have to be ready to go by Friday night. Didn't cook dinner though. Packed boxes, sorted things, and so on. Sent off the last package to my Secret Pal spoilee.
Also sorted out photos, I'm looking for photos of my brother Tim to scan... His condition is worsening, today his doctors said that family members who want to see him should visit soon :/ My (soon to be married) brother Ben, and (just arrived from London today) sister Jen, and mum are coming to Canberra tomorrow. It's all a bit mad. Why does everything have to happen at once?!
