Yesterday we had our Stitch and Bitch meet-up and of course most of our conversation was knitting and knitting related topics but food, or cooking was another hot topic. Cindy and her Chocolate Dessert Cake, my kids are going to love her for that one and Cathy and her Old Fashioned Rhubarb Cake which I know that my Dad will adore. Thanks ladies for sharing your recipes, pop on over to their blogs if you would like to see why my mouth was watering yesterday.
Something else I discovered yesterday was that my stash definately needs enhancing, my pathetic little plastic crate is not a patch on the amounts of yarn my fellow members have. So today the postman bought some parcels so I can now add to my poor excuse for a stash some lovely yarn which I purchased from The Knitting Yarn Shop. Now this is listed as premium seconds yarn but it is pure wool and I can't fault its quality. I have purchased 1.35kgs of the 10ply airforce blue and 600gms of the variegated 8ply in olive green which is absolutely beautiful and the photo does not do this lovely yarn justice, all for a very reasonable $49.50 including postage, what a bargain.
I am still waiting for the Jo Sharp Silkroad Tweed to arrive so that I can knit the very popular Ribby it is apparently on its way so hopefully it will arrive soon. I probably wont start it this year now as it is starting to warm up a little but hey I do live in Tassie!!
