Well the exam went badly and I don't really want to talk about it. Needless to say, I feel like a bag of 'smashed assholes' as my friend says.
I did however, buy some yarn yesterday. Don't worry, I haven't fallen off the no-yarn-for-me wagon, I will use this yarn to knit a Christmas present for my grandfather (who cannot use a computer so I can share it with you as I knit). See rule four.
This yarn is Briggs Little Heritage, one of my favorite yarns of all time. It's 100% wool and 100% Canadian which makes me happy. Not only that, it's the most affordable and longest wearing wool I've come across. A fellow guild member sells it from her home as she imports it wholesale for her own use. It ended up being less than $5 per skein which is far better than the local yarn shops. Anyway, if you are interested in acquiring some Briggs Little of any variety and you live in Victoria, leave a comment with an email and I can email you her contact details.
I'm gong to make this lap blaket out of it.
I also finished my hot water cozy. Peruvian Highland Wool from elann.com in purple heather, with a simple cable pattern on the front. The pattern is my own, and I hope to write it out on my blog soon.
Spinning superwash is fun. These are going to be fantastic socks!
