This week I have been busy at the office. I would like to find a job where I can knit and earn at least double what I earn now to fund the yarn habit. Anyone got any ideas?

Let us examine this badly taken photo. On the bottom are three spools of a yarn I bought on ebay. It is a rayon/cotton/silk blend and I have no idea what to do with it.

In the middle row on each end there are two balls of Alpaca I got from Berrima recently. They are so soft and snuggly. I am making my neice a cardigan with that stuff.

In the middle is a big ball of pink handdyed mohair. I got this at a yarn swap yesterday at snb. Actually, if the truth be known, Sharon felt sorry for me and snuck this back in the yarn swap pile because by the time my number was selected the pickings were mighty slim. I selected some purple faux fur yarn to repay her for her kindness. She was delighted, and more than happy to have forfeit the pink handdyed for the purple faux fur. I'm sure she's knitting it right now.

Anyway, enough snarky. I left the best bit till last. There is a girl called Jussi knits. I posted a comment on her blog to the effect that I liked the yarn she bought. So that girl sent me two sample pots of these denim yarns. They are indigo dyed cottons, like the actual stuff they make jeans with and I see Magknits t-shirt coming from them. Anyway, if that wasn't nice enough to send me some of her yarn to try, she also put in there some really beautiful beaded stitch markers! I don't own any beautiful beaded stitch markers (well I do now) and I was seriously floored by her kindness and generosity. There was some chocolate frogs too!(but I ate them) And a lovely card as well. So if you're reading this Justine - thank you thank you thank you - what a great person you are!

Proving once again that knitbloggers are in fact the milkmaids of human kindness.
