My FH has already flew back to work in Kalgoorlie and I won’t be seeing him for another 7 weeks. I know we’ll be apart for a very looooooong time but I have my furry babies and knitting to keep me company. Yes, my knitting has resumed and progress has been slow and steady. However, before we move into my knitting progress, do look at what Mr. Postman has brought me today? :up:
There are two packages and the big box is a package from my SP 10 and I’ve been waiting for this package for more than a week already and I’m superly duperly excited!! :up: Would you look at all the yummy goodies that’s inside the box??
Firstly, there’s two beautiful skeins of Hand Jive Knits Nature’s Palette Yarn, Fingering Weight in Seafoam colour. I haven’t really thought what I’m going to knit with this yarn yet, but most probably it will either be a pair of socks or a shawl.
Secondly, look at what my thoughtful SP 10 got me!! Knit Simple Magazine Spring/Summer 2007 issue and Last Minute Knitted Gifts, which has been on my wishlist since last year!!! Isn’t she nice??? :heart: :heart: :heart: I’ve been eyeing that book for ages!!!
Thirdly, she even got me some non-knitting bits and pieces such as a really pretty notepad, some mints in a really cool metal box, and a make-up bag that has pretty butterflies embroidery on it.
Lastly, here’s a special message to my SP 10:
Dear SP10 aka Genevieve, thank you so much for being such a wonderful SP to me. You’ve really spoiled me with so many lovely goodies, whether they’re knitterly goodies or not. I love every single item that you’ve bought for me. “Thanks” just ain’t enough but I couldn’t think of any other way of showing you how grateful I am. Although this round of SP has ended, I hope that we will still keep in touch and that our friendship will continue to grow :heart: .
In addition to that, I have four skeins of yummy yarns from The Knittery. From left to right, I have 8 ply DK Merino in Grace, Earth, Sea breeze and 4 ply Sock Merino in Petals. My colleagues have asked me to knit them some scraves and I’ll be using the 3 skeins of DK Merino. As for the 4 ply Sock Merino, I’m thinking of using it to knit myself another shawl, once I’ve finished knitting my first shawl of course!! :up:
The sleeves on my Leo has been growing soooooooooooooooo slowly. I feel like as if it’s taking me ages!!! I wonder when will I even reach the sleeves cap!! It’s getting a bit monotonous at the moment. Luckily, I have another project going on at the same time, which is the Shetland Triangle. I’ve just finished the 6th repeats but it’s still looking quite tiny. I got a feeling that I’ll have to knit quite a few more repeats to make the shawl into the size that I want. However, that also means a lot more stitches per row!!! :yuck: I wonder when will I finished these two!!
