I'm a lucky lady ....

... I have been feeling really fortunate recently ... a warm glow of happiness ... why? Well I just feel really lucky ... lucky for lots of things.

Lucky for being able to craft all day long in the cutest rambling house ever, lucky for having a husband who seems to be going for "husband of the year 2008", lucky for a wonderful puppy who is ever so cute and lucky for having a loving family - both back home in the UK and here in the states. But I got REALLY REALLY lucky when Auntie Chris gave me SO much yarn that I feel overwhelmed with happy knitting thoughts. The yarn is made from her own sheep too - so it makes it an extra special homemade gift! I wasn't sure how to show you all just how much yarn there is ... so I laid it out on our dining room table ...
I want to get knitting right away ... but Castro wants to know what I'm going to make?
His question was a good one - so I took this perfect opportunity to find some inspiration ... (love love love craft books) ... and found the following two books ... my purchasing excuse is that I only have one skein of certain colors in my great haul of fabulous yarn and I don't want to waste any. One Skein: 30 Quick Projects to Knit or Crochet by Leigh Radford and One-Skein Wonders by Judith Durant - these are both filled with great little projects - and I'm still justifying buying yet more craft books - but it is great to be able to use up that odd skein of yarn left over from other knitting projects too.

  6. You are lucky! I wouldn't know where to start with all that yarn.
    The Leigh Radford book is one of my favourites - I've made tons of the felted bowls!

  7. Hi Rachael Rabbit, what a great name! I have just noticed your comment on Moogsmum's latest post, and noticed that we have West Sussex in common, so I thought I would take a nose in at your blog. How cute does your puppy look amongst those skeins, did you plonk him/her there, or did he/she settle down there by his/her own free will! x
