The lovely Kerrie at Hipknits had a competition on her blog to name the latest yarn from Hipknits. She wanted Shakespearean womens names and I suggested Emilia, as it is a beautiful name for a beautiful yarn! I'm not biased at all :) She chose my suggestion above all the others and check out what she sent me! It is so beautiful, and the skein of silk was a totally unexpected and very welcome surprise! I have a red winter coat and thought I may make a muffler with the silk. I can't wait to make the capelet with the lilac Emilia yarn :) Thank you so much Kerrie, you've no idea how happy your gift has made me.
When I told Emilia about all this she said 'When the yarn arrives I'm going to have to keep cuddling it.' I think we have a budding yarnographer in the making!
I made these bags last night, only 8x8" but perfect for treasure. The flowery one is a gift bag and has a pair of socks and hat in for a friends baby.
This is the material for the front room blinds, It's so heavy and strokable!And finally as I really muct go to school and get Emilia, my nursing pillow. It's so squooshy and really comfortable! I wonder if I'll use it?
