knitterly goodies!!!!

I took part in the current round of secret santa on the crafty threads forum and my gift arrived today!!!
Some chocolate, yummy!!!! Some gorgeous handmade buttons, and some Habu silk/steel laceweight!!! It's a lovely gift and I'm thrilled with it. I want to make a scarf with the laceweight I think, just need to find a pattern suitable for it. Looking on ravelry, the Habu seems to have been used for plainish scarfs, but I was thinking something airy and open lacey iyswim..........
I've just been doing easy knitting whilst I've been on nights as knitting time has been limited. I started Montego bay last year and only did a couple of inches before it was dropped in one of my many WIP bags, but I rescued it before the weekend, and its now finished!!! It's lovely. I haven't decided whether to add fringing or not yet?! It's blocking and I'll take a picture when its finished off properly.

The sun has been shining today so I've been laid on our hammock in the garden. I love it when its sunny, I like to lie and listen to the world go by, no music, no book, just quiet....... Bliss:-)
It's a good job it's warmed up a little, our boiler has packed in and we've had no hot water or heating since saturday morning:-( Hiopefully it will be sorted tomorrow, cold showers are definately NOT fun!!!!!!!!

Great gifts! Love the buttons particularly... I've knitted with the Habu (the Kusha Kusha scarf) - it's a bit weird, but quite a nice effect.

Good luck with the boiler! Or else it's the tin bath in front of the fire...
