Winter Warmers is a lovely book filled with all sorts of pretties, including this and these, which I loved knitting last year and, incidentally, make wonderful gifts (I gave brooches to my daughter's teachers last Christmas). I actually bought the yarn with the intention of making this pattern and it was such an easy and quick distraction. The husband said 'it's not my favourite thing you've made' which means he hates it but, hey, if it keeps me warm I'm happy! Ooh and before I forget, the shell pink cardigan I'm wearing was a thrift shop find the other day. Brand new Miu Miu, an unbelievable snip at $28 although I'm more excited about the long coveted original Guernsey jumper I snaffled at $24. Score!
The lima, by the way, is a lovely yarn. Its alpaca content makes it wonderfully soft and cosy, a bit like holding a kitten so says my daughter. And she should know. Our two kittens celebrated their third birthday yesterday .. in style, would you believe. Millie presented her brother with a feathered luncheon, promptly eaten before my husband (a keen bird watcher) had the chance to identify it. Sorry if you are of a slightly sensitive disposition but the cat owners amongst you, I dare say, will have seen it all before!

Have a happy week, everyone.
