Hiccup with Posh Yarn :-(

Poor Seany, he tried to buy me some Posh Yarn, laceweight, to make this shawl the Wildflower Shawl and the yarn has been lost in transit. He ordered it about 3 weeks ago now and it hasn't turned up so he contacted Dee who said she sent it to our address, but the UK instead of Australia. We don't know who got mixed up, it could have been either of them. Seany did place the order about 3 am so he could have put the country code in wrong...but then Dee took out the international postage fee so perhaps it was the right address but she misread it.

Either way, Dee kindly refunded his money and tonight I am going to set my alarm and try and order some myself. I have just put a post to start a KAL on Angel Yarns, so I hope someone else joins, or I'll have to knit-a-long with myself, hehe.

My lovely husband also had another package arrive yesterday, that didn't make my birthday either. He bought me two sets of rosewood straight needles. They came from US. He did so much research on the best needles to have, he is just about an expert now. Isn't he lovely!!!!!!

It's been a LONG time

Too too long. I mustn't leave without telling where I'm going?
Which was actually nowhere, just been busy...
I got into Ravelry.. YAY.. last week. Sure keeps you busy. It was my birthday on Wednesday, and what a lovely day it was. I have such gorgeous family they spoil me terribly and make me feel totally loved. Ahhhh.....
I'll add a few bits that I got as gifts from the above mentioned lurrrvelly people....

Grandpa Socks

Well, these socks aren't actually for a grandpa, although my husband does act like one on the odd occassion. DH calls them his Grandpa socks, I think it's the he right?

Anyway, I think I learnt a lot with these socks, with the help of some lovely knitters from Angel Yarns. One foot has a mistake, I started decreasing on the top of the sock instead of the side. You can see in this photo.

But apart from that I am happy with them. Next time I am looking forwards to using some plain coloured yarn and trying a little lace or texture. I'm thinking of Grumperina's Roza's socks. It is my birthday later this month, and some Lorna's Laces Shepherd Sock yarn is on my list.....:-)
