Clearly, I have gone crackers.

You wait all week for a blog post and three come along at once!
I have a finished object post in the cauldron for next week but in the intervening time I’ll just give you some photos of yarn and a sock!
I started this sock the day before I went on holiday and I got a fair amount done despite the blazing temperatures and having little time to myself
It’s Broadripple without the holes! I call them Unholy Broadripple. I replaced the yarn overs with a lifted increase. I also managed to keep the ribbing in the chevron pattern. Still not sure how I managed it and it’ll be fun to see if I can replicate it in the second sock!
I have been acquiring a little yarn (as part of my one-in-one-out policy with my stash) and this all has projects lined up.

I was going to have a rant about the lack of public transport around here on a Sunday but I don’t want to spoil the photos of pretty yarn, so I wont.
I want to be Helen Mirren.
Seriously. If in 5 years time I’m a tenth as hot as she is now I’ll be one happy girl.
Who do you want to be when you grow up (or grow down!)?
Today, I give you yarn photos!
I got some Socks That Fit in two colours and two weights. What? I’ve got to replace the yarn I’ve given away! That’s a warning for the Lorna’s Laces I’m hoping to acquire in the near future!
And on their own

Just two quick notes;
1: contest winners – Stacey, your yarn was sent Airmail on … Thursday? Something like that. Amy and Britt, I’d only found one padded envelope earlier this week, so yours will be sent next week if I can get into the loft where I know there are some hiding!
2: if you drop a cheese grater from the work surface, do not attempt to catch it with your ankle bone.
It’s now strapped and elevated.
