Don't go any further if you want to avoid seeing my Sock Hop Club yarn!
I had an early start on Saturday, to keep an eye on FL as he climbed onto the roof to duct-tape the broken skylight before the snow came. Mission accomplished!
It was made rather stressful by the dog continually running out of the back door and then forgetting he could get back in the same way and battering open the front door with his paws. So that's how the old door got broken...
I set up the slow cooker for Chicken Dhansak (from Slow Cooking Curry & Spice Dishes) then it was off to the sorting office to collect my Sock Hop Club package - a combination of "boo hoo and woo hoo!" as I had to pay a big customs charge for the privilege of receiving wool from America. But it is gorgeous!
The colour is "House of the Rising Sun", a mix of magenta and tangerine. So soft! So pretty! So... expensive! I must find a project to make the most of it.
I have been sewing. There were a gazillion tailor-tacks to prepare for my South Riding blouse. The fabric is beautifully soft. Lots of details to check in the pattern, with varying seam allowances and no hem allowance at all. I traced my own copy so that I could add notes as I went along.
FL spent Saturday sleeping and watching football / rugby on tv with the sound off. I assume this was his post-dexy crash. He is complaining about a sore tongue, which sent me to google. Don't try this at home, kids. It makes eating and talking difficult. He says he feels "rotten".
I watched The Edge of Love while I knitted Betty Jean. 1940's cardigans galore - woo hoo!
It is Sunday now, and I have just received an email from CroftMill to tell me they have lots of new fabrics on sale. I clicked the link. OMG. I am about to spend my children's inheritance on material. Sorry, kids!
Hope you are having a good weekend ; )
