A small aside...

Yay! This arrived in the post today for me from Southseas knitting. I ordered it last week and I’ve been impatiently waiting for it to arrive. I teamed it up with some yarn from my stash, a beautiful soft merino from Quality yarns in Milton. The merino was a real bargain just $7 for a 100 gram hank of 26 micron New Zealand merino.. I bought three … Now I just need to decide what to knit with it. I just love these soft colours.

The merino is a slub DK though and the Manos Del Uruguay is Aran weight. I’ll need to knit with the merino doubled. I was thinking maybe a small girls jumper or cardigan with it. Decisions, decisions!
