My knitting supplies - well, they arrived in South Africa on the 10th of August, but we did not. Five months later and we are still in Jerusalem. I am starting to miss them. And no, a little crocheting is not enough. One tiny, tiny needle hook (0.75 is really small) and 5 tiny balls of cotton string - that does not quench the knitting fingers' thirst for some action.
Cue our 'romantisk storbyferie' (romantic metropolitan vacation, which I hear all of my Norwegian friends talk about with such stars in their eyes) to Berlin. Berlin is filled with goodies of all kinds - more to tell in a later post - but also yarn. I had take some home. As a souvenir of course. So some beautiful teal coloured Regia 4-fadig yarn had to come home with us. (No picture unfortunately... My camera has no more battery power, and guess where my battery charger is - that is right - in our container in the port in South Africa. GRRRR!)
So now all that stands between me and knitting is needles. I love bamboo, hate metal and plastic needles, well to generalize at least. (I have never tried the fancier rosewood needles etc, so I cannot say whether or not I like them...) Last week I went looking for some needles. My usual supplier here has stopped carrying bamboo needles, so the hunt is on. We will see what this week brings.. Maybe, maybe I will be able to find it in one of the other three stores in town which carry such silly knitting notions. Wish me luck!
