Stripey! And Canadian glories.

I haven't got round to blogging this tank-top I made for C to keep her warm in the Sydney air-con and winter. She wears it lots for work. And here is my favourite model -  Stripey front!Stripey side!Stripey back!
Look at those muscles!

Anyway, today I went to the post office to send a parcel to Canada, and to pick up a mysterious parcel I'd been left a note for - hey, Joline, we've almost crossed in the post - it was your parcel I was posting! (I've got another North American parcel in the pipeline, but incomplete, so not yet posted). 

What a parcel! Baadmedicine presents packs of pringles (in my favourite flavour) Grizzly Bear Coffee canadian coffeecan't wait!) and chocs, as well as Buffalo Gals yarn - a 2ply in 70% bison and 30% merino. I think it'll be WARM! Haven't quite decide what to do with it yet - but here it is, in all it's soft green glory.

And a delicious skein of Great Big Sea by Handmaiden Fine Yarns! So fine, I've already cast on, so no pics of the skein, just of the ball I've wound and the Ceriantharian I've cast on.

Up close and personal:

And the start of the cowl:

How lucky am I?
