It is official, I do love Wispy, its warm light, pretty and I love wearing it. I can see it becoming a staple in my wardrobe and I would probably consider knitting another, just not in Summer Tweed!
The combination of Summer Tweed and moss stitch gave me chronic hand and wrist pain. When chatting about it with some Liberty Rowanettes, the consensus was that you either loved or hated it, I am in the hate camp.
It is a shame as it comes in such pretty colours too.

Wispy took a little trip to Ikea, no photos though, I did see some fab storage items and especially liked this table, it has a perfect yarn as art drawer with glass. I just may have to go back and get it!

The packing is coming along, though I am occasionally side-tracked by a ufo, I do have a pile of sewing wip's and I have thrown out and rearranged lots of stuff. Apparently I am the only member of the family moving out next week as no-one else has packed any of their stuff yet! I do keep giving them the countdown but apparently a week is LOADS of time and it will only take a few minutes!
My Mum is coming to visit the day after I get my new apartment keys, she is bringing her marigolds, no sun-worshipping/sight-seeing for her, she will be set to work. So her and I might de-camp to the new place and leave the boys to it.
One of the reasons I am looking forward to moving is that the new place has no fitted kitchen, okay it does have ugly tiles but it does mean that I can get this out of storage, I am looking forward to using it again.

My boys all have plans to spend their summer in Scotland, so it looks like we are driving over to see them and pick up Jake at least. Jim suggested a little yarn crawl through England/Scotland, I just might have to take him up on that, any suggestions?
If I owed you a package they were posted today, but my little notes to go inside are still here, oops!!
Back to week to go.

Very pretty Yvette ! I've never tried Summer Tweed because I don't like the feel of it in the skein but I could be tempted. Excellent to hear the boys are planning summer in Scotland - let me know when you're coming to pick them up and we can maybe fit in a coffee / glass of wine chat :0)

Darn - my typing is bad at the best of times, but when the sun is out and I've been in the garden with a glass of wine...

Thanks for taking the time in all your upheaval to do the work for that parcel and for sending it to me. And an extra special thanks from my taste buds for the chocolate :0)

C'est tres tres joli! Joli enough in fact, to really make me want one in the black and white colour. Hummm... Come back to London on the way from Scotland to France, it's on the way! We can go back to Stash, you know you want to! Or come to Colinette in Wales, I'll come with... x

Your sweater is very, very cute and versatile. Too bad about the yarn, however. Your moving plans sound great--mothers are a wonderful treasure, aren't they. I love your stove--I've been longing for a new cooktop and oven. I haven't liked either since we moved in 14 years ago!! Happy cooking and baking with your favorite appliance.

That is Very Cute! And I love the colour, too bad about the yarn.
Your stove looks awesome too by the way. So different than what you find here.

Wispy is so lovely, I have the same problem with the Summer Tweed which is such a shame because I really like the way it looks.

Happy Packing.
