Have you been to the Bendigo Woollen Mills website lately? They have another new yarn out which is like a tweedy sort of yarn with little flecks through it. This is what arrived on my doorstep today (whilst I was out and Paul was home of course - thankfully no dirty looks today about the parcel of wool). It has passed the touchy feely test and is very soft indeed so it should be perfect for Isabelle's cabled hoodie. This color is Loch and I am going to go back and buy some more in different colors. It is only $12.00 for a 200gm ball until the end of July and then it goes up to $16.00 per ball (correct me if Im wrong please). I think this is a bargain for this wool and I am sure I could pop some into my stash for a cabled hoodie I want to knit for myself that I found in one of my knitting magazines. More on that pattern later though when I actually start it. I just have half a sleeve to go on Isabelle's bolero/cardi and some buttons to pop onto her Olearia and I can start the hoodie. She is in need of more winter knits as most of the ones I made her last year are now too short in the waist and the arms! Oh well more knitting for me.
Thank you to everyone for your well wishes. I am happy to report that the second infection seems to be clearing itself and I am feeling so much better. I think last night was the first night in about 2.5 weeks that I slept without pain. Yay!
