surprise!!!!!!

I had a nice surprise from the postie when I arrived home from work this afternoon! Firstly my march's Posh sock yarn of the month arrived, isn't it pretty???!!!:-)

Secondly, some sock yarn from scandinavian knitting design which I ordered at the beginning of the year, I'd forgotten about it tbh, so was thrilled when it arived today! The colours are lovely aswell and it was very reasonably priced!!!!!!!!

The fluid linen top is progressing very slowly! It looks nice, but the yarn is so slippery, that I wish I had cast on in bamboo needles rather than metal ones, but I'm scared to do it now as I'm sure my tension will be different, but I'll persevere in short bursts I think! Never one to be able to resist the lure of a new WIP, I cast on for Ravel by colinette, which is a plain garter stitch cardi, and am using Monet colourway.

I love the colours in colinette yarn, but I like uniform thickness yarns, so don't often use it, but this is in cadenza, which is a lovely dk weight merino yarn, machine washable too which is ideal for me with my two smelly mutts!!!! Speaking of which.............Scooby's ear is still bleeding. He's taken to removing the bandage partially and wearing it as a scarf whilst he races around the house, depostitng droplets as he goes *rolls*. I feel a little decorating coming on while I'm off work!!!!! Thanks for that scooby ;-)
