Dixie Peach: Must have new yarn. Must knit.

Cooler than the other side of the pillow.

Must have new yarn. Must knit.

Must find which box has my needles. Forget it. I don't have 10mm needles anyway so I'll have to buy some.

I have to knit this shrug featured in the new edition of Knitty. Tell me this isn't the perfect thing to wear when you're snuggled up on a cold, snowy day with a good book and a cup of tea.

And I happen to know I kick butt making bobbles.

Wow, that's so pretty! The knitty site has the best ideas. What colour are you going to make? I was downtown last week and it looked like so many of the knitting needles were sold out. Must be the Christmas knitting rush.

I'm thinking a nice blue would be great. I have lots of tops that would coordinate well with a pretty, smokey blue.

You know, I can go to Karstadt one week and I can't find jack for needles and then the next week they have a zillion. Either they sell out fast or Karstadt is lazy about restocking.

There's a yarn shop not too far from me that's fairly new and I'm hoping they have some good chunky yarn and needles for this project. Since I have to yarn substitute I'm going to need a bit of guidance from the ladies there.

Ooh, it looks lovely - and yep, the bobbles will be a cinch for you. I'm trying to avoid drooling over the new knitty until I get all my Christmas stuff done!

I definitely like snuggling up with a good book and a cup of tea! I like the shrug and it does seem the perfect garment for snuggling... a snug shrug. I bet you'll make it even nicer than those pictures.

We don't ever have cold, snowy days here, though. And I never get cold enough to wear stuff like that. I don't knit, but that looks like something my mom needs. She's always cold. And she's the only one. Me, my dad, my son... we're very nearly NEVER cold. But she always is... in the winter anyway.

Gah! I missed that in Knitty. It seems like a great start to a love affair with shrugs. I'm rather partial to that green.....not that I need another excuse to buy more yarn :'(

Not being even vaguely a knitter, I am in awe of you that you can even attempt that.

It looks lovely though, I could fancy one myself. Fancy being an international clothing provider Frau G? I'll pay good gold...

Zoe, providing that I can pull this off successfully and it looks good, I'll knit you one. I'll swap you tea and Hobnobs for it, okay?
