The kindness of strangers.




I mentioned in a previous post that I had recently spent time in a local graveyard. I was looking for the relatives belonging to someone who had contacted me through Flickr. It was good fun and although we didn't find exactly what we were looking for, I took a lot of photos and sent them off. My payment for this adventure arrived yesterday - three balls of yarn. Beautiful Jasper by Berocco. You can't buy this in the UK so I'm chuffed beyond belief. Thank you Georgia!

Here it is, nestling in my new felted bag, this week's finished fellow. I've thought up a pattern that allows you to make a bag according to how much yarn is available - very handy if you are trying to use up scraps or have three skinny skeins of badly spun Jacob needing a purpose.

Today started very early for me on account of waking up at 5.30. I communed on the sofa with Magnus until the sun started to show and then went up to the Dam to take these photos. The heron was fishing in the water but he always flies away too quickly for photography. We have a kingfisher too but I have yet to see it. Ground still frosty and the sunshine pink at the edges. Well worth getting chilly for.

the angles on that bag are quite fun! what a fabulous way to use up some 'growth yarn'. :)

the prezzie yarn seems a very cheerful colorway - i hope you have a lot of fun with it.

Beautiful day! I love the fuzzy grayness of the felted bag, the pointy corners too. and lucky you to get the yarn in exchange for your adventure.

Nice bag! I like the pointy corners, too, and the way you worked the handle.
