the internet is a wonderful thing. especially on a boring friday afternoon at work, like at around 4pm australian eastern standard time, which is about 8am in say, for example, germany.
oops, how did that happen? it was a ‘grab bag’ and ‘we’re different lace’ update, which was perfect really, because i dont have any blue wollmeise lace. well, i didnt. i do now.
you might be different little blau, but youre lovely. that same day i also ordered ALL of these.
im a bit of a sucker for ‘sets’. i collect books, i have been told, like trophies. so it makes sense for them to be pretty matching trophies, no? can i just say, these 6 books took 6 days to arrive from the UK. say what you will about the english, but royal mail is wonderful.
less so the combination of New Zealand/Australia Post. how long did these take to get over the ditch shelley? 14 days maybe?
not that im complaining. the shortbreads are here in time for the final on sunday, and the all blacks better win or there will be HELL to pay. the beautiful yarn is ‘knitsch’ sock, the shop of which shelley lives near. there was an update. i got some ‘deep thought’ and ‘heart of glass’.
they are so lovely. reminiscent of koigu, one might say. the heart of glass is my first ever willingly purchased ‘green’ sock yarn. i think i’ll probably make ’embossed leaves’ with it.
also, no sooner did i say something even remotely morose in my last post, than the internet conspired to throw me a curve ball. a friend request from an ‘old flame’ on facebook. we are in contact. Things Might Happen.
ah internet, where would we be without you? (richer and less freaked out probably).
