Soft Socks delivered to your Door.
They are soft and squishy and the yarn from The Yarn Cafe is truly scrumptions
My swap Pal mixed the bamboo and the BFL yarn together in a self-designed pattern.
Very distinctive! The colour looks great.
Delivered with some tea and sour cherry lollies (that I am looking forward to consuming when my throat resumes it's normal state! And my favourite a little notebook in the shape of a J.
Did I mention they are soft to wear!

My knitting mojo is well and truly back.
The fun (even with the unravelling) of The Purple Rose of Cairo (which is now blocking over a plate) has given me energy and I have galloped along on the "It Must be Love" 4 ply last night at the M&S knitting group.
I have also finally succumbed to Twitter as knitterjp. A bit of energy today...all set for Inner City Knitting Guild meeting tomorrow, catching up with friends from LA in the afternoon and a Sunday pottering and knitting.

I got an email late yesterday from Michelle from Needlefood. I won the
monthly draw and get to select a colourway for a free skein of yarn.
Two Leaps Back
I have had to undo The Purple Rose it was gigantic. I have rewound
lots of yarn, cast on again with smaller needles and have knitted a
huge amount again.
With the rework I have not had much success in progressivg my Tour de
France KAL goal of finishing some Wips.
The good news is I made some serious progress with the Team Time Trial
last night. I am back in form and hopefully getting some cadence back.

So what is the first thing I do after that...cast on another project...The Purple Rose of Cairo (Ysolde's Rosered in Purple) insired by http://roseredshoes.blogspot.com/ and being a bit. At this rate it is likely to be the first WIP finished for the TDF with only a few rows to complete.
Today saw me (and the cat) seeking out sunny protected spots away from the crisp wind to sit and contemplate the day and knitting. I am pretty sure she has been sleeping some too. A peaceful and productive day.

Somewhere in June with a week off for the film festival and that holiday feeling I kind of went mad with the yarn purchases.
Three more sock yarn purchases from The Yarn Cafe (Evoke) - Bluefaced Leicester Superwash. Custom dyed to order. Elissa is an absolute gem from our own Northern Rivers in NSW.
The colours are quite stunning and the yarn is lovely to touch.
