Rainy days and Mondays...

I hope you all are having a Happy Valentine's Day. I am. It's been a strangely peaceful Monday despite the rain. It's also a perfect day for a chocolate induced sugar high.

I can only show you half of the box... the other side is empty ;-)

My knitting has been slow going, as I've had a strange pain in my shoulder for a couple of days. I think I strained some of my muscles during circuit training. I can knit for short periods of time. As for my Klaralund, I've finished up the front and now I'm working on the back. Unfortunately my knitting has acquired a tiger balm-y type smell.I hope it washes away during blocking.

Rainy days and Mondays...

I've added some lovely stuff to my Knitting library. I've finally got my hands on Scarf Style, Knitting on the Edge, a Dyer's garden, the new IK Spring and Knit.1. My mental craft queue grows by leaps and bounds, the minute I open up a knitting book. Now I just need the skills, the yarn, and of course the time, to satisfy all my knitting needs.

A big Thank You to Alison for the lovely RAOK last week, a wonderful card and some extremely yummy recipes.

I hope you all have a great week. Happy Knitting!

Oh, Klaralund and Noro, I dream of them...
Yours are wonderfull, really !!!
Please, be carefull with your shoulder, it's often a problem for knitters. You have to knit something light or stop knitting for a week. It's like tennis elbow... Sorry...

I hope your shoulder gets better! Tiger balmy smell? I am trying to think how that would smell, but maybe I shouldn't... doesn't sounds to good :P

Love your Klaralund progress. You chose such a lovely Noro colorway.

Take care!

Aaaahhh, chocolate and knitting. What could be finer?! Hope your shoulder is getting better.

Hope your shoulder feels better real soon. I really hate when that happens from doing something so good for your body!

Looking forward to seeing Klara. Your colorway is so pretty. Pretty greens!

Love Godiva's...can I have one?

Your Klaralund looks wonderful so far! And those really are the Must Haves for a knitter's library, esp. Knitting On the Edge. So fun!
