Si, more yarnshopping and Queen Parr Progress

OK, I admit. Ihave been shopping. Was it blogging around, and remembering that I had not bought GOLD in Bohus? Or was it the very special letter from Nina (Nysta) about the sale? Well, I did it. Both, I got Gold and the "grey mist" in Bohus. Bless you Solveig. And then I strutted to a surprisingly empty Nysta. Hey this is the real yarn deal. 20% off ALL, and 30% on some!. So, a bunch of odd balls Kureyon. Some silk-garden, one Malabrigo etc...
You can see how this goes on and on. And I realized that Mary had that great Malabrigo picture... I so got that and it fits like yummy icing, when it so go with Kureyon. That is the Male Japanese colourful and Sensual Peruvian Indian softness in a mix. What a marriage. Two souls. I just love them together.So 7 Kureyon, that is interesting to create something from. Anyhow, I so missed one sweater in my 12 sweater rally. So I think I will have a 14 sweater rally. But month of January is going to be long, Im so knitting Queen Catherine Parr for the Tudor Roses- Along, and it looks great, is fun but slow. Ohh so slow. It is working it every row,and just breaf rows. Also, it is BIG, I mean BIG. I think it will hide every resturant visit I ever had.
But please. Say something Nice. I have actually worked between 1-3 hours EVERY day on it. And, I have not so much time to blog. I will KNIT it. I want it so bad that there is not room for anything else. Well, alittle something something is there always room for. Like Yarnshopping, blogging and generally surfing and kissing my sick hubby.

Your Catherine Parr is spectacular!
If I ever will knit my favourite AS Katherine Howard I will ask you to help me choose the colours:)
lovely yarns in soothing colours you got today.
I am comforting myself with the colours of Bohus Skogsmorkret and other favourite yarns. I hope this awful flu will go away. Sympathy to your hubby:)

Klart jag säger nåt snällt när du stickar en sån gudomlig tröja! Heja dig, det blir kanon! Hoppas din make blir frisk snart, visst har ni varit mycket sjuka nu? Trist.

I will not take the blame for the malabrigo--but I think pairing it with Noro is genius. Unfortunately, for the Peruvians Fujimori didn't work. I'm thinking of using some Anny Blatt ribbon with mine--for what, I have no idea!
