Patons Jet donated by Georgie, knitted on a 5mm needle. I badly needed a dose of softness and colour and the Jet with alpaca in a varigated colourway fitted the bill. Thanks, George, it was joy to knit. I'm keeping the rest to knit when I need another special treat.
A visit to Vinnies Belconnen was squeezed in after a meeting on the other side of town today. The yarn bins showed that TSS and I have been pretty restrained of late - they were full to overflowing.
I brought home a good selection of 12 ply for the Time Thief Watch Caps and some 8ply for Mum. I declined to pay $4 a ball for black Totem (there were 6 balls). Also had interest from a couple of customers in a Belconnen SnB. Can't remember where the thinking is up to on that one.
Fantastic news, though. I was talking to a client in Collector this afternoon and he was describing sheets of water lying on the ground and told me they were sandbagging the Linwood Cafe against flooding. He was ecstatic.
