odd stuff

Tonight, I ruthlessly sorted out my stash. Well, my upstairs stash.

I've got 3 huge bags of stuff to get rid of, and this is the basket of leftovers/random balls bought on a whim/other stuff.

In theory, I have enough yarn to se me through 30+ projects. In reality, I'm itching to get to Stash, as they have wishlists, and I know I've been very good of late :)

This was excellent timing, as i'm horribly ill this week and was at home feeling sorry for myself. Viva SP8, and thanks pal xx

My carnaval pal

Originally uploaded by celestine_e2.

Today was Carnaval del Pueblo in Southwark, which was amazing. One stall had a life-size toy alpaca, and they were very amused that I wanted to have a photo taken with it.

In other news, my subscription copy of Interweave Knits arrived yesterday, and it has a number of bookmarks for future projects.


This is a test post from flickr, a fancy photo sharing thing.
