The family have flown home. The ornaments are safely tucked back in the closet. The tree will get put away this weekend. The weather has warmed up and almost everything is as it should be. (We're still having troubles with the loo but that's a story for another time)
Mum and I went up to the LYS while she was here. She picked up some bamboo needles and some Silk Garden to start her own Wavy scarf on the flight home. I think it's probably a good thing that we're in different countries; it cuts down on the yarn enabling. We could easily have spent a lot of dough. We managed to keep it mostly under control. I did buy my yarn for Rogue though. Yummy, deep red Cascade 220 (colour 9404.) I can't quite get the photo colour right but I'm sure there will be plenty more sunny days with Rogue in the shoot. The Rogue yarn isn't the only new red item in the house these days. My desk now has a shiny new addition. If you've seen the movie Office Space, you'll know why this isn't just any ol' stapler.
