Voldemort can't stop the rock

Nope, the title is completely irrelevant to this post. You have got to love the song title that "Harry and the Potters" come up with though.

Firstly to answer your question Diane - yes, I've seen one or two episodes of "Long Way Round". I thought it was excellent. Ewan and Charley are so utterly lovely and down to earth. I looked on Amazon and found the DVD of the series is on sale at 9.99, so I think I will buy it :-)

I started a gift scarf last night, using Wendy Shimmer in shade "Regal", rich pinks and red-browns. It is also a stashbuster scarf, as I had 2 balls of this sitting in one of the boxes just waiting for me to have the idea :-D Two balls will be just right as this is for my niece (aged 6). I'd say I'm about two-thirds or more done. This yarn knits up into such an amazing thick, silky soft fabric.

My little order from McA Direct arrived today (they are so speedy and free P&P over 5 UKP) - 4 balls of Patons Whisper Lurex DK, shade Midnight (the lurex is silver). This is for a skinny scarf and bag for my aunt for Christmas. I got the pattern book for Whisper too which has an ideal baggie that takes one ball, plus a contrast yarn. Well, I have the perfect yarn for that already, the Debbie Bliss Cashmerino in black. I think I'll knit the bag in the round though rather than attempting to seam the crazy eyelash fabric!
