Caught short

Nobody likes cold feet, least of all cold tootsies. I don't know how I managed it, but I've been caught short of yarn. Every knitters worst nightmare I'm sure, and I'm living through it.

It would be fine if I could purchase Lion Brand magic stripes here, but oh no, another thing us Brits don't have here!

I have a pretty plea to my fellow American friends. I'm using Jelly Bean Sripes No.200, if anyone has the tinyest, incy-wincyiest piece of strand that they would be willing to send me, I would be ever so grateful.

BTW, have you seen the new Debbie Abrahams book? I had a preview at a friends house, its so cute. It has a seasons of the year blanket with pumpkins and autumn leaves, a baby's blanket with letters of the alphabet, a circus blanket with clowns faces on. It's on my Channukah wish list [ok hubby?]!!

I don't have any in the stash but I'd be happy to pick up a ball for you. Just let me know!

ps - thansk for mentioning Debbie Abrams' new book. I hadn't heard about it yet and I think a baby blanket may be in my future!

Glad you'll be getting that yarn so that your toes will be warm! If she has any trouble finding it, I can get it at a shop by me. I love the colors in your dyed yarn. Very pretty! Have a great weekend. : )

Hi Sweetpea, thanks for dropping by at my blog. The garter used to be in a free crochet pattern site. I've just checked, they don't have it anymore. I still have the pattern. Email me if you would like a copy..:) And yes, those are live stitched on the bamboo.

Laura - thanks so much for the offer, but I'm a bit rusty on the crochet needle. I'll have to get some more practice in before I make something as beautiful as that garter.

Hiya. Did you ever get the second sock finished? They look really lovely. Pity we can't get that yarn here. ~Sharon
