Rainbow yarn

I love this yarn, so pretty and colourful! So in your face and bright :) I went to Spins and Needles today to pay the deposit for my knitting class, and as I've worked pretty hard on revision I decided to treat myself. At Spins and Needles part of one wall is devoted to big chunky hanks of lovely yarn, all with a different set of colours. I've been eyeing them up for a while, so decided to go with one of these. I bought two hanks for a chunky winter scarf as advised by the lovely lady who I assume is the owner. It's Colinette 'One Zero' in the colour way Jamboree which you can get from Colinette here as Spins and Needles don't sell online. It'll brighten up a dull winter day nicely :)
I had my second of three exams this morning too. It was an open book exam so we were allowed to take a textbook and all of our notes. This might make it seem easy, but it was a research skills exam so we had to actually interpret the results not just work them out. I actually enjoyed it as I love working through the rules/instructions for filling in tables etc. I think that's why I like sewing and knitting so much. I like structure and rules and a particular order to do things in. I love doing the statistics part of research skills, as I enjoy working my way through an equation to get to the result. Am I weird? lol

ps. This is my 100th post!!! I'd hoped to have something more interesting to share, but time ran away from me.


  1. Totally with you on the love of structure/ rules/ equations :-) Not that that'll be a big surprise!

    Glad the exam went well, and that yesterday's went OK. One more! Only one more!

  2. Lovely yarn!!

    Maybe that's why I came to sewing late and am yet to master knitting as I am hopeless at working out equations/statistics and maths in general....

    Have a lovely weekend!!

  3. Haha, I thought you'd be one of the few who'd agree with me Lucy! :)
    I'm rubbish at the rest of maths Sarah, I can only do the stats on my course because of the excellent lecture slides and work books that we're given by our lecturers :)
