99% done

Entomology, that is! After finishing my final row last night, I cast off this afternoon and it's now happily blocking on my bedroom floor.
As always, the transformation from lumpy to lovely has proven a marvel.
The colours of this yarn have melded beautifully - I was a bit concerned that they would not end up working as well as I had hoped, but all went well. I can't wait to show you all the final product!

In other happenings, I answered a bit of a blog competition over at mixtapezine and won! The lovely Justine has passed on her copy of "A True History of the Hula Hoop" and it has arrived at exactly the right time.

I've just started some much needed holidays, and am very much looking forward to hanging out with my girl, and heading down to a cabin near the beach where we can read and swim and generally relax!

I started my relaxation with breakfast - fresh figs, good raisin toast and some honey & cinnamon ricotta.


ahhh, I love holidays

Oooh entymology finished just in time for the holidays - and a nice new project for holiday knitting I hope??

Sounds like a fab spot for a holiday, hope you have a lovely time!

The colours look fantastic together. How could you have doubted it. In fact, almost figgy (maybe the outside of one, not the inside).
