trying a new yarn



I have started knitting with a new bamboo/cotton blend yarn. I love the concept of it but the verdict is still out as to whether I enjoy knitting with it or not. I have a visceral relationship with yarn, and cannot stand knitting with acrylic or polyester, as doing so is like nails down a blackboard or grinding teeth to me. Spoonful of Sugar has been knitting with 100% corn fibre.
For fun have a look at knitting for psychopaths.

The simplest and cheapest packaging is the most appealing to me at the supermarket. Thought I'd snap this before sending it to the recycling bin.

I'm a total sucker for gorgeous packaging. Just last night I bought a brand of soap I've never heard of because of the beautifully simplistic packaging!
