Call me Lindsay Lohan....

...because I have a substance abuse problem, and I may need to go to Knitting Rehab - will there be knitting there...?
The postie just came, and I was embarrassed....
He had for me:

Knitpicks Sock Needle set, and Knitpicks Options interchangeable needle set (Donyale, you're evil....)

Donyale Bruised Bloodwood 4-ply

Kitty Knits - 100% Pure Australian (machine washable) - 2 x DK Buggsy; Sock, Buggsy; sock, Leather and Lace; sock, Choc Orange + very cute stitch markers (free!)

3 x Claudia Handpainted, Short Sport 100% Merino, 'Red Wagon', from The Loopy Ewe, plus cool knitting needle inventory cards (free!! And a beautiful hand-written note, I love it when people put a note in!)

Techno Fleece for a my cousins' baby blanky -not due till July, so HEAPS of time! (an eBay purchase, soft, washable)

Sock kit - Opal and needles and pattern! (eBay again, I heart eBay...)

Goodness me, I'm going to have to wind all this bounty into balls now...before it's too late (for what, I don't know, but you understand my urgency....)

..some of the haul....wound while waiting for pics to upload.....

Did I mention that I'm on holidays? Till the end-ish of January? Yes, I know, it'll be tough....I'm starting the way I mean to continue, sitting on my back verandah, much yaaaaahn within reach, icy drink on one side, lappytop in front of me, latest knitting project in hand, ipod on in the background (courtesy of lovely speakers, gift from the lovely Jules for my Birthday a couple of years ago) blaring knitting podcasts. Every few hours I haul my stinking carcass (too tired to bathe some days, you know how it is) off for a nap, then come out to resume the slothing....

Kisses and yawns and sweat from between my fat rolls,
Me

I wondered where Connor's Christmas toys were - he doesn't wreck anything, but he hides them up in the dirt - I oncefound an unopened jar of olives there....and my school keys (just to my desk, don't panic!)....and the adapter for my mobile phone charger....again, now do you see why I need a gardening man? An ARMY of gardening men?
