Hanne Falkenberg Ballerina Back Home

Not sure what is I was looking at here, just pleased to have this little beauty back home. My daughter 'borrowed' this several weeks ago , and it has been like getting blood out of a stone to get it back . Although I love it to pieces, the shetland wool is so scratchy , and I am now knitting another , but using Rowan 4ply merino which is behaving itself beautifully and should be infinitely more wearable than the ' brillo ' pad one .

Ireceived the most wonderful package from Gilraen of Gilraensknits , I really don't kow how she managed to get so much into the parcel . The socks are so beautiful , warm and soft , I just love everything and it really brought joy with it .
Things have been a bit ' up and down ' here for a while, and it has been quite difficult to be cheerful . W has had the last of his ' radio active ' scans , and we are just waiting to find out how much damage has been done . He keeps active, but has to take life ' in the slow lane ' for now and it doesn't suit him at all .
We seem to have been sitting around in hospital waiting rooms for ever, and the only good thing that can be said is that I finished quite a few things off , and several people admired my Harmony needles .
We had a mini summer last week, wonderful weather, but wouldn't you know it , back to rain and wind , oh well , it was great whilst it lasted.
