Birthday Yarn Porn

On Saturday I will be 30. Happy Birthday me!!
as a present to myself I ordered some zen garden yarn from Knitting Inspirations. It is in the merino/seacell yarn and is a special aussie wildflower colourway. This one is Mottlecah. (the other one is on back order).

Anyway, it arrived today and tonight at my early birthday dinner, my sister (who is away on the weekend) and her husband gave me my pressie- a new camera!!! I am soo excited. It is a canon digital ixus 950IS with image stabaliser and all that jazz but now look at my new yarn porn photos- they are soo much better! So happy birthday me (and thanks sis!)

Just in time for YPF, a package gets delivered. It is the first month of the Yarn Collective's Sock Club, a new Aussie based sock club (that is also pay by month!)

What a great start, yummy yarn, a beautiful stitch marker from monsterknits and organic CHOCOLATE (not pictured as in fridge getting ready to be eaten) The second photo shows the colours better. Such a pretty spring colourway (cherry pie is its name) and the best part- its labeled batch #1. Whoo hoo. Now I just wait for the knitpicks needles to arrive and it will be cast on, I am thinking embossed leaves.

PS: Dear Blogstalkers, sorry for the lack of content but as assignments, exams and illness are all apparent this last month the completion of even 2 rows of knitting a sock a night have been hard to accomplish. However after exams it will return to schedule (before taking a break when i go to egypt!!!!!!)

For My Swappee

Opps- My Bad!

Ok here are the photos, my fav cup, my one cup coffee plunger and my normal coffee plunger- I think its about a 4 cup one. I also own a giant party sized one but rarely use it.

ps: the funky ruler is from Mt. Buller ski shop from according to the back when I was in year 7! I can't believe its still around.
