Shetland Wool for Vivian

I'm in heaven. While visiting family in Leeds I was dropped off at a wool shop I found - Baa Ram Ewe. Beautiful and lovely shop. Long after everyone given up waiting for me and gone off to the park, I came out with a bag full of lovely Jamieson's Shetland Heather Wool. The color is just as heather in full bloom, not as purple as it looks in my picture. Ysolda's Vivian is what it will turn into. Yeah!

My mother-in-law dug out some gems stored away for me to take home. Candy!

While in Leeds I took up my Zetor shawl that was frogged ages ago. I unraveled what I had knit before and am now knitting with two strings of this VERY thin lace yarn. Like it much better now, but as I just have to start with Vivian, Zetor will have to wait yet again...

Knit Bag

Finally I got myself together to make:

a) one of these little hand-stitched flowers.
b) a knit/craft bag.
LinkThe flower is hand-stitched together, but applied on the bag by machine.

Inspired by this little tutorial listed on the great blog Monster-Arkivet.

The boys and I went to Parkside Farm today. A Pick-Your-Own fruit and veg farm just 15 min drive from us. This is what we came home with.

Yum! So now I'm looking for recepies to make home made jam for the first time in my life. Wish me luck!

And in between all of the fruit this little creature appeared - Minnie Mouse! My result of this pattern.
