Had a few tense moments with the basket weave stitch, which pulled like mad, scrunching up the front sides horribly, but thankfully once wetted and blocked they settled into place.
Rémi gave her a beautiful little gift too - a small trinket box that he had decorated with a Rosace.
I liked this yarn so much that I went back and bought some more, I think it will make great wrist warmers.
Keeping me up into the wee small hours at the moment is Life and Limb - A True Story of Tragedy and Survival Against the Odds (Jamie Andrew). In 1999 two British climber spent 5 nights on the exposed ridge of Les Droites in Chamonix after being caught out in a freak storm. Only one of them returned and he suffered the loss of both hands and his both legs below the knees. I was already living here when this tragedy took place but don't remember it happening, ironically I only learnt of the accident years later after buying the book from a charity stand at a farmers market in Wales!
Having a few blogger problems at the moment - that is when I can actually get an internet connection. Up until now I was receiving up dates of all the blogs I follow, now however all I'm getting is one update from which ever blog posted most recently!
Confused as ever by technology!!!
Linking-up with Ginny for Yarn Along this week.
