Jodi has sent me these potholders for my new kitchen as a Pay it Forward.
Aren't they cute? I haven't had potholders since the renovations, and I really needed some. These have been used right away, and now are a fixture in my kitchen. Thanks, Jodi!
I also wanted to show you these: Reisenthel baskets. I've had the red one for years now, using it for grocery shopping. Now I've got another one, with lovely floral design, and the tiny one, I'll use as project basket. I need it during the warm times of the year, when I go outside to knit, and often have to get all my stuff inside asap. This basket will be perfect. I love all of them!
I've cast on a new shawl. Romi Hill released two new shawls last Friday morning. It's two new Muses of the 7smallshawls Year Two ebook. I like them both very much, but I've cast on Polyhymnia's Triangle, with some Wandering Cat Yarn first: It's Twinkle Cat in Marcasite (grey), and Twinkle Cat Gold in Rumpelstilzchen ( I especially like how this one looks knit up).
This triangular shawl is nothing like a usual triangular shawl. It's a very interesting knit. I'll knit Calliope's Odyssey probably next. Right now, I've only got two WIP's, which is O.K. (Old Forge blanket, and Polly shawl).
And on a totally different note. I'm hoping that somebody can help me out here in trying to identify this tea for me. I've got it as a gift directly from China. I was under the impression I was drinking Green Tea, but since this loose leaf tea was used up, I've tried different brands of Green Tea and none of them tasted like the tea from this tin.
What the heck was I drinking? I really liked it too.
