in a wrestling match between myKnit Happens sale however, so I didn't pay full price, phew. We made a modern art display of them amongst the bamboo in Hubbs' garden. Pretty.
These beautiful stones reside by the bamboo. They were picked up by Hubbs in Lynmouth and Clovelley in North Devon. More pretty.
Hubbs is a knitter, but only of garter stitch scarves in 'novelty' yarns. I sent her some Alpaca for Christmas in an attempt to whet her appetite for luxury yarns. Here is the result. A garter stitch scarf. The gold adds a little sparkle. Even more pretty.
Anyone who knows me, knows I love the Alpaca Silk, so of course, I had to bring her some of that, and, in an attempt to expand on the garter stitch scarf, she made a spiral scarf. In less than a week she's completed it. Be still my beating heart though, she knotted the ends of the yarn!!!
And this afternoon she asked me to teach her the purl stitch. Someone pass me the smelling salts.
