I took this photo last week, but never got round to posting it:

I think I just discovered why other people have swifts and yarn winders! Never mind, an IKEA stool works just as well doesn't it? This is the yarn I received from my Secret Pal the other week. I know I said I wasn't going to cast on with it until I had made more progress on the other projects I have on the go, but whilst I was away, I couldn't resist. I've christened it the Purple Project for the moment, because I don't want to reveal what it is yet. Mind you, the cotton tote bag is now on the handle, so the end is nigh. It's great TV knitting, since it's garter stitch! That's more than can be said for the Purple Project - it's not fiddly (yet!) but it is a yarn that it's easy for my clumsy paws to split if I take my eye off of it, so it's not one for knitting during CSI, NCIS or Doctor Who!

Want a peek? Go on, then:

And just to finish off, when A and I were away at the weekend, we visited an Alpaca centre. These guys are very cute...

I wonder if we could fit one in the garden?

Oooh, purple. My favourite.

Is that new Doctor Who? As in post-Rose Tyler? Can't wait till it comes back on here. Loving the new series.

Yes, there is life after Rose and it works! (wasn't sure it would)
We've had two episodes now and it's great to say that Saturday telly is now worth watching again!

Everone I know seems to own that stool, have decorated it differently & put it to different uses. Ikea is the new black.
