And the rain came down...

...and down and down today. I used it as an excuse to stay at home, put my feet up and work on Bombshell. I am now down to the ribbing at the waist and things are moving along a little quicker. I'mnot sure about my yarn choice - Debbie Bliss Cotton Angora. It feels lovely, is a gorgeous colour, but sheds like mad. My clothes are covered in it, it's up my nose, in my mouth - everywhere. I hope it sheds less after first wash or I'm going to be very restricted about what I can wear it with. Something green and slightly hairy, I guess.

I was wondering if you could get an 'industrial' lung disease from working a lot with yarn that sheds, when I was looking at the Anticraft website. They have an article on craft-related injuries. They also have this nifty knitted condom pattern.

The main reason for today's enforced idleness is overdoing it a bit yesterday with the arts and crafts bedframe we bought. j helped me assemble it and then I waxed it up. I'm really pleased with the way it looks. Of course I should have remembered the photograph it naked, before I put the mattress and bedding on it. The foot board is a repeat of the headboard, but slightly lower.



No more DIY projects for a while - need to focus on being mobile enough to go back to work in a couple of weeks :( Well, until the next one.

The SP8 reveal has taken place - all the blogs are up on Bobbi's blog. I think I've worked out who my spoiler is, as she's the only Irish blogger on the list. Wonder if my spoilee has received her final package, including my reveal card?

the headboard is incredible - what a find!!! And the knitted condom - I am glad I had finished my soda or my screen would have paid for it.

Drat - when I log on to read your blob, the bio section in the right column flashes, teases me with the opportunity to read it, and disappears forever. For all you know, I could be reading it, enjoying it right now. Hope you know how to discipline it to remain!

Hi Barbara - I'm not sure why that happens. It looks ok here on my mac and I've checked it on J's PC too. I'll check the display settings. Thanks for reading :)
