I know that I've only just got back from a road trip, but while we were away my husband and I ended up purchasing a new car. Seen as though the car that we're purchasing is literally brand new we had to wait a week for it to be ready. So a week has pasted and we are heading back down to the Riverina to pick up our new car, it's a..... TOYOTA LANDCRUISER!!! How Lucky am I? We're leaving tomorrow morning, staying at Granny's house tomorrow night and heading home first thing Saturday morning. I'll post a photo of the car when I get back.
Look at this amazing wool that I purchased from http://www.thewoolshack.com/ last week. I just love it! I promised a ball of the Jawoll sock yarn to my sister at http://luvabby2.blogspot.com/ but sorry Ab I need them both. I'll buy you another ball in my next order.I'm going to make my first pair of socks with this wool, yes I know that I said that I wasn't going to make socks with it when I ordered it but I just can't resist. The colour is called Cookies 'n' Cream, now isn't that just enough to make your mouth water?
I'm not sure what I'm going to do with the caramel coloured Jo Sharp wool as of yet, but I'm sure that I'll find something. The little pink tin to the left is a lip conditioner and as promised one of these will be in the post to my sister Abby tomorrow. Now I have a question for all of you experienced knitters out there... What is this?
There was one in the middle of each of the Jawoll sock yarn balls and I've never come across it before. I thought that maybe it had something to do with knitting socks. Any info would be greatly appreciated.
I'm on the hunt for an easy sock pattern for first time sock knitters. If there is anyone out there that knows of one please feel free to leave me a comment with the details...
