Can't beat the beige-sics

After my flirtation with mad multicolour combos, variegated colourways and funny textures I'm suddenly hankering for solids and neutrals. Basically, when it comes to yarn, bring on your finest grays and creams! Of course other solid colours are most welcome - that pink baby alpaca lurking in the stash is looovely - but I think variegated beauties are in the past for now (although I still love my very first Koigu socks).

I think it's just so that I'll have an excuse to cover the FO with buttons, ribbons, embroidery, beads etc etc and hence have more reason to purchase these type of lovelies. I think I may ask for this book for Christmas.

That of course does not stop me from pawing colorful yarn pretties, but it is a step in the right direction..

Here is my neutral-tastic haul from iKnit day:

It was lovely to meet up with the ladies, although it was harder than expected to stick with my neutrals policy. Especially with candyfloss-like roving on offer:

Is it just me, or does it remind you of My Little Ponies?

I managed to take a snap of someone trying on a 'funky' knitted dress. Hm. Looks like someone has been knitting with with neon pink intestines.

I guess the hat on the left is quite cool though.

Lovisa's booties

Heard the happy news that my Swedish friend M has finally had her baby! The baby was almost 3 weeks overdue and she was getting rather fed up of our 'tips' as to how to get things going e.g. walking up and down stairs and trampolining. She was not impressed.
Anyhow, any excuse for some booties, so little Lovisa is getting a pair of Saartje's super cute ones:

Hope they fit :)

Rather random

I rather enjoy carrying my camera with me everywhere nowadays. Even though my poor camera is looking more battered than ever..

Couldn't resist taking this pic on the way to M&S the other day. The dramatic light makes even my poor photographic skills seem ok.

Hoping for some scraps from Pont de la Tour.

M's 'installation' trying to make up for breaking one of our plates..

So prepare to have more randomness inflicted upon you at even more random intervals!
