It's been a year since I started blogging. I didn't think I'd make it, but here I am and to celebrate a little I got something from Kiyoko yesterday at our Sunday knit thing:
A skein of "Szack R" laceweight wool from Japan in a delightful coral red heathered colourway. I am still thinking about what to make with the 1,300 m of it. Yet another great buy from AmiAmi, where good things come from.
Hence also the whole Japanese theme...at least I hope the title says "Happy Birthday". It could be awfully embarrassing if it said something like "go to hell" or worse, though I am pretty sure certain people - Miss D., for example - would enjoy other people's embarrassment - mine, that is - very much.
How about you check out the Montreal knits blog for some more japanese knits? Véronik's latest post shows great examples from Toshiyuki Shimada's book "New Style of heirloom knitting". Honestly, I got the book, and some of that stuff makes me wanna drool...
