Something for the Weekend!

The postman came with a package from my SP10 this morning, and what a package it is.


If there is one yarn company in the whole wide world that can always excite me to the point of drooling, Habu is it. I only saw their yarns for the first time last October at Alexandra Palace, but I was entranced with their tiny little balls and cones of silk and steel wool then, and still am.

So how lucky am I this week to get a package with two cones of 100% silk, in this fantastic shade of green, this stuff is very special, and will be taking pride of place amongst my stash awaiting a special project to do it justice.

This other thing you see is called Tangle, its a fabulous little thing that I haven't come across before, but great fun, you can just play and twist and turn, it's so sculptural, I've been trying different arrangements of it this afternoon, and seeing what kind of shapes I can make, seeing how tall I can make it, but keeping it balanced, just bending it around, perfect for fidgety children and restless knitters!

Thankyou Secret Pal!

Oooh, that IS a fabulous package! Silk, and the Tangle...that's a great card also. Hmmmmm, what's the yardage on that delightful silk?

Mmmmm. I love Habu too. It's the little balls, I think...
Anyway - great surprise package, there. Junior Mints can never be wrong, either. Happy belated birthday, Jo!

That's a great gift. I have never seen or felt Habu. The color is lovely.

You've had a great birthday week with good surprises. :-)

Tangle looks like one of those playthings that's nice to have on hand.

ooooh silk! You are a lucky girl.

Those Tangles are great I bought one each for the kids for Christmas, kept them quiet for ages.
