My order arrived from Posh Yarn today. I can't believe I resisted temptation for so long - the yarns are wonderful.
The pink is lace weight 50/50 cashmere silk, the pastel skein is sock weight 50/50 cashmere silk, and the two other skeins are 20/20/60 cashmere silk cotton sock yarn, one of which will be my Mum's Christmas present (unknitted).
We spent lunch time at a park near Hunter's Hill today, which was remarkably bush-like in feel. This feeling was helped by the barbeques supplied - ready to light a fire (not gas or electric.) Both children showed their barbequing genes, attempting to cook an apple and some cornflakes with great enthusiasm.
