Wee Davie just picked up his biscuit, looked outside, and hurriedly backtracked. It's wet and cold out there. In fact, earlier I went to check on the hens and found little Fifi snuggled down between Lulu and Cosette, presumably using them as big feathery duvets!
In rain and cold, my new silk still arrived. It's from Dye For Yarn, who has the most beautiful colours and the most amazing names for the yarn. My silk is 'Trapped in a Night's Wish'. It actually looks more purple than it photographs.
It is destined, with luck, to turn into this. This time, I'm going to be a little more careful about size!
