Glad


Good Gracious, I don't know where the week is going. One family of four, one long weekend away equals seemingly endless piles of washing and anyone would think the house had a wild party while we were away, surely I didn't leave it in such a mess? The good news is the sun is shining which seems to elevate the mood of the entire household, I am feeling glad again. I picked up some gladioli with my shopping this week, I know they aren't very fashionable but I rather like their gangly arrogance, I gathered the last of the lilac from the garden to partner them and some lovely shiny ivy (although as I scrabbled about for the right bits to cut I couldn't help thinking of Carol's comments about the rats in her part of the world and their fondness for hiding in ivy, since reading that I always cut ivy with a dog at hand, I'm hoping they would soon alert me to the presence of any visitors lurking).

I was thrilled by all the lovely comments about Birch. My friend was delighted with her shawl and I'm so pleased I made it for her. She certainly deserves some spoiling at the moment with a two year old, 4 week old baby and enormous building works going on, not to mention a husband who works from home and we all know that has its good points and its very bad points. The baby is scrumptious and I had lots of cuddles, I'm planning more baby knits already.


I have another little finished object to share, a lacy scarf from the Debbie Bliss Silk book, knitted in Debbie Bliss. I love the colour and this yarn really gleams.

Nice to see you are back! I do love a vacation but it's always nice to come home! And hurray to finished projects! Also, I found another ball of that dishcloth yarn with the bath mitt pattern on it and I'd like to send it to you--would you mind emailing me your address? Have you seen the neat ballband dishcloths in Mason-Dixon Knitting? I'm working on some of those too. I'm planning on giving either a washcloth or bathmitt with some lovely soap to my kids teachers for end of the year gifts...

How did you find working with the Debbie Bliss silk? There are some beautiful colours I would love to try out in a few months, but I'd like to hear how a few people have found it first.
I was sure your friend the new mum would enjoy some pampering.
Thanks for the lovely comments about my shawl.

Whenever I see gladioli it reminds me of my husband visiting me in the hospital after the birth of our first daughter...he walked in with a huge bunch. It was like a bouquet on legs! Your parcel was posted yesterday. xx one-skein pal.
