Last Friday the two things I had been impatiently waiting for finally arrived.
I cannot wait to start this project, but first I have to finish off both the Botteh scarf and a sneaky mindless scarf I have been doing at the same time. Starting the Spiderweb pattern will be my reward for finishing those.
This is the Amy Karol book I have been searching for in Canberra for weeks. Even stupid Borders didn't have it (it wasn't even in their computer). Eventually I gave up and went to www.fishpond.com.au. Fabulous service, fast postage and it came from New Zealand which I am still trying to figure out the logistics of.
The other exciting thing that happened on the weekend is that I ordered this...
...but with whitewall tyres, hopefully a white seat, silver mudguards and a black basket on the back. I haven't felt this excited about a bike since I got my Malvern Star at age 9. Mainly I got this bike so that I can exercise - my current state of foot crippledom has gotten beyond a joke, and this is a non-weight bearing exercise which might enable me to get my fitness back. Hopefully I'll get the bike by next weekend.
I. Cannot. Wait.
I'm very sad I couldn't get to SnB yesterday - I had intended to, but in the end life got in the way. You know how it is.
