You do not talk about Lace Club. Oops! Too late :-) Last week I received the November yarn, cashmere-silk laceweight in a gorgeous deep rich red. The picture doesn't do it justice, the red is somewhat darker than the camera flash allows.
We also received the link to a lovely free pattern, the "Pot Pourri" lace scarf. I'm keen to make this, especially as I also snagged some bargainous Debbie Bliss cashmerino Aran on eBay this week. The garnet tones very well with the Posh Yarn, this came from Alba Yarns
(and I have another pack on its way). The deep plum/purple is from Belleflower Designs
who are sadly closing down. After working with the Cashmerino again for the London Beanie I decided it was perfect to make hats and wristers, hence the eBay searching.
I also received the Winter 06 Interweave Knits this week, and after seeing Arwen
again I ordered that second pack of the garnet yarn. So now I have yarn enough for that and for accessories. I also love the Equestrian Blazer, and in fact most of the designs in this issue.
Daisy asked (or rather, Monkey asked!) if we had taken any monkey photos at the zoo. Sorry Monkey, we didn't, but we did see one of the spider monkeys "singing" in his tree on the island in the capybara enclosure :-) Couldn't get a decent shot of him unfortunately. We didn't have much time to wander around and see all of the animals but we're definitely going back in the Spring when the weather is better and the days longer.
