I finished the scarf I was knitting with the wool I got from Eloise for Christmas, and since it was a nice day I took it outside for a picture in the sunshine. Don't you think it has a snake like quality hanging in the eucalyptus tree?
And the beautiful new journal I bought from World of Shroo on Etsy.
How gorgeous is that? I'm almost afraid to write/draw in it.
It looks right at home with my seaglass and driftwood and my cheat's crochet pebbles. I say cheat's because I didn't crochet the covers myself. I've tried crochet, and I don't know what it is but I just can't get the hang of it. I can knock out a wonky granny square, or one of those apple cosies if I've got The Idiot's Guide to Crochet in front of me, but my brain just doesn't retain the information afterwards. So, yes, I cheat, I just get a tiny vintage crochet mat (about coaster size), run a gathering stitch round the edges, pop a pebble in the middle and draw it up tight. Instant crochet pebble gratification without the tears.
