A card from my SP7 pal:)

I received a gorgeous card today from my SP7 pal with a promise of something more in the mail:) Very exciting and I am so pleased I joined:) I've been busy emptying my art room, my daughter gave me an ikea computer desk set up and it is a fraction of the size I had. I had a hand made MDF large desk top from my SIL which is now on freecycle:) I'm carrying on the clear out tomorrow and being ruthless I've almost a large bin bag of collage materials/papers/decoupage napkins stamps and more to give away. I dreamt my space last night. It was painted in soft lavenders had my computer desk in one corner, my craft desk in front of windwo. 2 stacks of plastic boxes full of the stuff I don't want to give away, my 2 book cases and a comfy sofa:)) Thats what I am now working towards:) No knitting today as we had lunch at our daughters, my grandson did a fabulous spag bol very yummy. I gave him a blue opal crystal as a thank you. He collects rocks and crystals. Thai meal last night also very delicious and I really enjoyed myself. Back to knitting a hat(surprise surpirse) for my son. Then scarf style came today so I'd like to maybe get some nuro to make Lady eleanor. Not sure if I can make her but I really want to try. I also got wrap style on sale or return but thats going back as I only liked 1 pattern in it.
Must have a see if we can get Lorna's laces here. A girl in library had a gorgeous shrug in oranges/reds/ yellow and she said it was Lorna's laces. Sadly she brought it back from Canada so couldn't help with a local supplier.

Now, if I can do Lady Eleanor, anybody can! I had to stop as I realised I was trying it with not enough yarn to finish it, but it was fine. I will definitely do one in future but in cheaper wool than the Kureyon I was attempting.

http://www.getknitted.com/ have Lorna's Laces and in fact I got some 'Bullfrogs and Butterflies' and some 'Lion and Lamb' today, but only one skein of each as they aren't cheap.
