What does a girl need??

Housekeeping is not my favourite way to spend time. But there is one exception; ironing! I just love to do that. Put some music on, clear the table to put all the piles on, and iron a couple of baskets away. But this week my back was hurting so much, that my husband didn’t want me to do it. Usually, I’m quite stubborn and do it anyway, but this week he was home so many days, that there wasn’t a moment for me to do it. And he did! So sweet! It took him like forever, but he managed to get everything in the closets by the end of the morning.

And he did all of it; even the fabrics I got last week! How amazing is that.

This month there was a sale of Drops yarn in Holland. Quite a lot of the different yarns of Drops-Garnstudio were for sale with 30% off. And because I really like to create things, just with what I have in stash, I should have a large stash, don’t you think? Well, any excuse is welcome to go and buy some lovely yarn.

There are a few varieties of Drops I already have almost every colour of in my stash, but this last year I started to use Delight, a beautiful fingering weight yarn with fabulous colour transitions. So I indulged myself and bought a few skeins.

Hi Dorien! You are indeed lucky girl with the husband who irons and the basket full of beautuful yarn!
I like to iron, too! I think the reason is that I like so much fabric.
Have lovely ironing time - no I meant knitting time!
