I'm feeling poorly today. I have a sore head and a sore stomach. I'm not about to die anytime soon, I'm sure, but I am certainly feeling sorry for myself. The trouble is that nobody else is giving me any sympathy at all.

It is indeed fortunate that I was able to collect my wool order on the weekend in the way to Geelong, because I have made myself a nest on the sofa by the fire and I've been working on this. Sigh. It is so satisfying. Cuddly too.

I bought these on the weekend as well. Aren't they just the most beautiful knitting needles you've ever seen?


  1. Beautiful needles.
    Hope you are feeling better soon :)

  2. Get well soon dear Jeanne. xo
    With my dodgy eyes I thought the needles had blunt ends but I take it the ends are black? Very cool.No, I got a second opinion and they are in a case? Knitting by the fireside sounds like a very cosy way to deal with sickness but I hope you get some sympathy and TLC. :-)

  3. Hope you recover quickly. Love the wool and needles...just beautiful! xxx

  4. Those needles are lovely. Are they the harmony wood? Where near Geelong did you get them?

    That beautifully-coloured yarn should help you feel better soon :)

  5. Hi Rebecca, the needles are 'Knit Pro' Symphonie wood. I purchased them at Purl's Palace in Daylesford - my favourite yarn shop!


    Yummy, aren't they?

  6. I'm sorry you've been under the weather... I do hope you are feeling better!


I'd love you to leave me a message. Tell me what you like - and what you don't. Just remember that this is what we do in our family - it doesn't have to be what you do in yours...
