I'm as Warm as Warm Can Be......

Tonight? The fire is lit,the terrible Wednesday night television is on (Medium, anyone?), lots of tea, and this:


Hand Warmers


The Hand Warmers are coming along swimmingly....no pattern as usual, just making it up as I go along! They'll end up looking a bit mental, but then I'm a little mental, so I suppose that makes sense!


I also managed to invest in some good winter clothes today, a pair of yummy wooly leggings from Kookai in a charcoal grey, and I black hoodie from a teeny-bopper chainstore that I'm ashamed to mention....but I tell you, I'm much warmer (and far lees grumpy) today!


Thanks so much for all the advice on places to shop and ways to keep warm, I'll definately be shopping for a hat soon, and if I can track myself down some yummy cashmere yarn, my chilly bones will be very grateful!


The Lovely Rhiannon was kind enough to provide me with a list of her favourite online shops, so I thought I would share the love....


For lush, lush, jewel toned ceramics,



Cul de Sac


For the cutest skirts you'll ever see....

Phew! That PayPal balance won't be safe for too much longer!

If it makes you feel any better, June here is suppose to be warm and sunny and I am sitting in my living room with a fire, eyeing your hand warmers. Thanks for sharing the online stores!

I love the way you knit without patterns.

My capricorn nature would never allow me to do that.
