DIL brought home the bag from the PO box and here's my haul.
- pine/lime splice, 125 gm, 500m
- salsa verde, 118gm 472m
- fuchsia kiss, 127 gm, 508m
- iron red,123gm, 492 m. Slightly more ferrous oxide colour than shown here. Lovely.
- miss magenta, two balls, total weight
331gactually 231 gm, total length 928m. My brain is too tired to add properly. Ooops.
Just look at my list above. See how generous her 100gm skeins are? Lots of extra to go into scarves or shawls. And a final surprise of a housewarming present was tucked in too. Is it any wonder that I buy from her? Great service, amazing colours, beautiful yarns and a generous spirit.
I haven't done much knitting for a few days and picked up the shawl again this afternoon. I kept making stupid mistakes. I'm tired. I ended the week with a mammoth effort of babysitting and was very late to bed on Friday night. From Saturday till this morning I have been shepherding a Canadian visitor around town and up to the Blue Mountains and other touristy destinations. He's in a wheelchair and hasn't walked for thirty years after a nasty car accident. I'm tired and my arms ache too. I've arranged meals with other friends, car trips etc. I'm looking forward to a good sleep tonight although the days have been good meeting up with others.
Exchange went through last Thursday and settlement is theoretically six weeks away. However, tenants moved out today and there are a few things to be done. I'm guessing it might be the end of next week or so. I'll move gradually as I want things like a fridge delivered before I move in properly.
