Paddy's Day stash enhancement



I got Regia silk from Web of Wool to knit Cressida [EDIT:correct spelling is Clessidra, duh!] (when I get the courage ;)), Mountain Colours Bearfoot in Indian Corn from Jon at Strawberry Tree for 3 pairs of socks for my boys and buttons from MacCulloch and Wallis to choose some to finish my Rock'n'Weave socks at last. There are no decent button shops where I live unfortunately.

The Regia Silk looks gorgeous! I've just had a look at WoW and it costs much less than I expected. Tempted... lol!

The postman delivered it this morning, fortuitous since there is an extra day off on Monday! :)

What a lovely palette of colours you are gathering.....can't wait to see what is created from them!

I will be interested to see how you find the Regia Silk to knit with as I have thought it looks yum for socks!

The Cressida will be beautiful in the colors you chose! They go together perfectly! The Urban Bobble scarf is still going slowly. It's so hard to find time to knit (and blog) with small kids to look after, a house to run, and working from home without child care. I still haven't staered my STR yet. I'm hoping to soon! Thanks for stopping by my blog!

Oh what beautiful colours! I was a bit slow on St David's Day - I hadn't realised it was a legitimate excuse for S.E.X!!!!!

Hiya - the e-mail address that sends out the ringsurf passwords and HTML codes is null@ringsurf.com. It's a system generated e-mail.

I actually tried to email you directly to mgthayes@aol.com but it keeps getting bounced back so perhaps that's what happened to the ringsurf mail. Have you got an alternative e-mail address?

OR, I could post it here in the comments and you could then delete it before publishing it to your blog? Let me know how to proceed.

Thanks...Bernie
