Old Maiden Aunt Yarns

it’s continuing to be stressful here, what with everything. the only answer? chocolate.
or, in this case, fleece artist merino sock yarn in “ebony” (which is doing a very good impression of a dark, bittersweet chocolate – yum). now, before i get in trouble for breaking my “knit-from-your-stash” pledge, i would like to officially state that this is a one-off purchase for a birthday present – fingerless gloves for my little sister who is currently in korea, & who has some rather specific yarn & colour requests which just don’t match anything i have in my stash! & it doesn’t count as buying yarn. so there. i’m just waiting for some hand measurements & then i can start knitting away – i’m excited to try the yarn as i’ve never knitted with it before, and even winding it into a ball was a delicious experience.
now, i’m off to eat chocolate for dinner – i’m a grownup & i can do what i want.

    Mmmm – that yarn looks delicious. And I must say that eating chocolate for dinner is one of the best things about being a grownup.

    For me one of the best things about being a grown-up is having fried eggs and just eating the yummy yolk – I never liked the white bits but was always forced to eat them as a child.

    The yarn looks georgeous.
