Mostly Yellow

D's been baking again.  He makes me laugh by creating a little vignette for me to photograph.  Ummm, is this my blog or his?!

Prettiest Liberty buttons for a little cardigan-pimping from my lovely friend Cathy's Etsy shop.

Thank you so very, very much for your comments in response to my last post.  My smile got broader with each one.  In fact, I've just read them all over again and my heart is soaring with the camaraderie of fellow bloggers and commenters alike.  It's official - you're wonderful!  Let us give no more air time to those who aren't.

Oh, Emma, you asked about the yarn pictured in my last post - it was Sublime Baby Cashmere Merino Silk dk in 'Duckie'.  It really is the most gloriously sunny yellow colour and a bit of a favourite at the moment.

So keen was I to thank you, I didn't really formulate a proper post.  As usual though, I've been taking the odd photograph throughout the course of the week and, rather fortuitously, there seems to be a bit of a colour theme so please forgive me for being a bit lazy and running with it?! ;-)

In other news, I've finally opened an Etsy shop.

My very first pattern, Miss Read Mitts, will be available for purchase tomorrow.  I've made quite heavy weather of getting everything just-so and would be lying if I said I wasn't a teensy bit moist with apprehension!  Once I'm happy there are no glitches, my second pattern, Be Creative Mitts, will be available for sale a few days later.  Followed closely by my Sarah Scarf.

And breathe …
