because everyone else has one


Ishbel, that is.

Really, 3657 people can't be wrong.
I'm using some of my beautiful baby alpaca from Donyale - colourway "Splat!". I don't think the colourway actually has an ! in it, but I always see it that way in my mind.

This yarn is bee-u-di-ful, can I just say? Soft as a.. well, baby alpaca, and a delight to knit with. Lucky I have another colourway stashed (Sir Walter) because I have plans, people, oh yes indeed!


and just a quick hurrah to all those participating in Blogtoberfest - you are amazing! Such stamina and commitment, I am exhausted merely trying to keep up with my bloglines. Today I quickly logged on to check a few before bed and someone had a very special event to share. Go check it out :)

Donyale said...

I am sure "Splat!" must include a '!'. It just looks right.

Bells said...

Ahh yes, Ishbel does seem to have a mania about it, but it is a really nice knit. I'm sure you'll be pleased with the finished piece, and the alpaca looks great in that colour.

Mmmmmm! Pretty. Reminds me of cherries.

Oh yeah the exclamation is most assuredly there. Splat! What a landing.

I mean to make one as well. Eventually. Yours is beautiful, and 'Splat!' definitely needs an exclamation mark!!!
