Hooray

Hooray, ebay buyer has paid up and I've despatched the parcel to her! Now I wonder what feedback she'll leave me...?! I hope everyone who left comments or emailed who was also having ebay woes gets everything resolved satisfactorily too.

Also, whilst browsing away on the web, as you do, I found this new hand dyed sock yarn at Angel Yarns - very very tasty indeed! Hmm. Am not giving into temptation. Do not need more yarn at the moment. OK, I'll rephrase that, am not buying more yarn until I've knitted up some of the stuff I've already got. The only purchases allowed are for my Secret Pal. But I do love Colourway 11, and as for the "unique" ones. Gulp. I will be strong. I will be strong...

There are so many gorgeous sock yarns around. Fyberspates and Koigu over at Get Knitted. Gulp. Tasty. So tasty. Lucy Neatby Celestial Merino. Gorgeous. Drool. Dribble. Lorna's Laces (although I've got some of that on its way via surface mail so I can't really covet it at the moment).

GET ON WITH SOME WORK!!!!!!

We've got the same taste in colours - reading the colour bit in the SP questionnaire was like reading my own! Well done in sorting out the ebay problem - I've not been brave enough to sell on ebay yet but I do buy....

Glad the ebay problem is sorted - but now I'm supposed to be working, but I'm drooling over sock yarn instead. Like I tell you - you're a bad influence :-)

(No socks until my current WsIP are done though - and then I need to find a simple pattern for a sock virgin.)

Thanks for your comment on my blog, and I'm glad to hear that the ebay problem has been sorted. Ebay can be so annoying sometimes - I've just had three parcels disappear that I have already paid for. I'm pretty sure they were sent, because the people sound quite as bewildered as I am, so I am blaming it on the Post Office. Grrr.

Yay for you that the ebay problem is sorted.

Those yarns come in some very cool colours. It's difficult not to buy when you know that they are one-of-a-kind or can be discontinued. Think of yarn as an investment in the future :)

Yes, there are some gorgeous sock yarns out there...

Now, gosh, wish I could figure out what to send you for the first gift... :-)

Still not entirely sure how this works - but I'm tagging you - the info is on my blog!
