all week, well the last two weeks really, i've been saving up for a little spotlight trip to plan colours for my next blankie project.
so this morning i got up much earlier than i had to and made the trek via public transport to spotlight in box hill. soooooooooo excited. almost jumping out of my skin with excitement. walked in the door and there was a little 2-3 year old girl screaming her head off. turn ipod up. all good. head off towards where i thought the wool section would be. through manchester, party, fabrics, homewares, back to registers. WHAT? where is the magical wool section??? second trip around the shop revealed ONE teensy little wool section. all the lovely wools crammed into one tiny little aisle. well actually there wasn't very many lovely wools at all. well there were a few nice wooly feeling ones but they were black or cream or pastels and what my heart really wants is bright greens and blue and lovely sea colours.
i have a sneaking feeling as well that there was once 2 wool aisles in the store but the second aisle has been taken over by CHRISTMAS decorations. in SEPTEMBER.
rant rant rant rant rant rant rant rant rant rant rant rant rant rant rant rant rant.
don't get me wrong i love christmas decorations, but i only love them in december. where they belong.

in any case. i've been working on a little ripple scarf, from my practice attempts... it's coming together quite nicely. except that i've ran out of wool for it... saturday, i'll get more wool for it on saturday. it's quite easy now that i've got the rhythm happening for it. and it's the perfect size to take on the train, bus, lectures and everywhere really!

so while that's in hiatus while i wait to get some more scarf wool, i'm working on another little something. i'll let you see it grow to see what it is... i bought the wool today in spotlight, it was the nicest one there... i may have started it while in a lecture. bad nicole.

Love the ripple scarf! I want see a post devoted to the new wool I know you have bought!
p.s. We need to have more lessons for me (then I won't feel so bad today about going to spotlight to buy wool because it will be for my lessons!)
