Hee hee – sorry didn’t mean to alarm anyone with the title of last post! 😉
Had to tink back the second outer when I was 2/3rd done. I was so pleased with myself, having tried it on a number of times… only to realise when showing off on Saturday that I had nowhere to put my thumb. Yup totally forgot the thumb increases and had to tink right back. Ah well. Pride before the fall, eh?
I love the colours and the way this yarn is all lofty and soft and bouncy and squidgy! And totally fast to spin.
Last night DH & I went to an old friend’s for dinner. R moved here last month from Paris – he had a nice group of friends, all with such interesting backgrounds – V is a food buyer, B & T a french couple, T a jeweller and B his fiancee (with the most beautifully designed engagement ring, and a HUGE diamond on it….), C who worked at Sothebys in Paris, N an aid worker just back from Sri Lanka, and R himself. We all compared notes on how we knew R and i was shocked to realise I’ve know R now for well on 13 years. Lordy me. I met R during a year abroad in Beijing. That year was pivotal in my life – so many decisions I made had long ranging effects… I doubt I would be in London if not for Beijing.
Friday I also had a nice treat – girls night out with B. It’s been ages since I had a proper catch up, and for no good reason that I can think of! I was so giddy at the end of the night I forgot where I parked my car, and when I retrieved it managed to drive it onto the pavement. Oops. Thank goodness B was with me to, er, direct while I drove.
