I am definately not a pink girl but look what is now in my posession. Yesterday I went to Agfest, which is a huge rural exhibition of all sorts of blokey things plus many craft exhibitors to attract the fairer sex as well, and Flinders Island Fleece had a stand. Flinders Island is a very small island just north of mainland Tasmania, they had this 100% pure merino wool which looks and feels so soft and yes it is pink, it is called dusty pink on the shade card and it is destined to become something cabled. I am thinking that somehow the pink socks and the cabled shrug have worked their way into my subconciousness, so now I am scouring my HUGE pattern stash to try and find something to knit this delightful yarn into. I also came away with their shade card which of course will mean future purchases I am sure.
The bright pink sock now has a mate, tomorrow they go to their new owner, I hope she likes them as they are very bright, fingers crossed.
Last but definately not least is a photo of Rocky, now that is one relaxed, happy cat. I am being a bit cheeky and have deliberately put a photo of Rocky in here today as I have been reading a discussion over at KNITTERS REVIEW FORUMS about what makes a great blog and some people have spoke of their disapproval of pets on knitting blogs. Whatever they reckon, I personally think that they miss the whole point that a knitters pet is just as important as other things that they post about on their blog.
The fire is blazing, the weather is freezing cold and as I now have finished the socks I am going to go and do some more of my poor neglected Cabled Shrug, till next time, happy knitting.
