Random bits

As you've no doubt seen from the previous post, Melly having access to your blog has it's downside. I feel kinda nekked now. Oh well, it's not like I haven't shown my arse in a myriad of other ways already...
Let me show you what Melly finished the other day. The same day her lovely daughter (the foot model seen below) brought me her boyfriend's cat. I'd show you a photo of the Lola, but she don't hold still so good. Rather, feast your eyes on these fancy socks. Trekking 126. It's ordered. I'm holding my breaths that we actually get it. Unlike my ill-fated reorder of the 'Tonks' from Opal. Damn Grrrmans. Getting all stingy with the sock yarns...


Sometimes you have a really big day. This was fabric shopping on steroids. Olympic-level stashing. Purchasing with a purpose. With the exception of the 3 yard cut on the far right, and a few 6 yard cuts, everything else is a five yard chunk of fabric. Miss K goes all in. She may be a bagaholic... she's real crafty, that one. She and her mister just moved into their home, so her sewing production has dropped off a bit, but I expect she'll bounce back in a big way... well, after she gets her seventy bag special order out of the way.

Ummm - first - lovely socks Melly and no I don't owe you any chapters. But thanks for asking.

Second - there isn't a piece of fabric in that bunch that I wouldn't use. Beautiful. I so can't live close to you.

WooHoo! Melly and I can be twinners -- I just finished mine. It was a record for me -- 6 days which will never happen again. Thanks for putting what the yarn is...as you may remember from my untangling, I didn't have a ball band with mine.

That DOES look like a big fabric day indeed -- Most Excellent!
