That's the seaglass necklace and the mister thinks he gave it to me. I'm not convinced.
And this is my soap dish. See what i mean about the colour? I actually have a physical reaction to this colour - a real clasp-your-hands-under-your-chin kind of reaction although I hasten to emphasise that the clasping is performed with a wistful melancholy sigh rather than a girlish squeal.
My dressing gown is this colour too. So is the Madeline Tosh yarn colourway 'Celadon'. I think i need to knit myself a lightweight cardigan from three skeins of Tosh merino light in that Celadon. I must remember this when the mister starts asking what I want for Christmas (because if I forget and just shrug, I'll end up with body lotion).
Colour Affection shawl: 50% complete. At the obsessive stage now where I will sneak a row while waiting for a document to load and hurriedly shove it away if i hear a colleague approaching, because you know, sitting staring at a frozen screen is acceptable but to be seen knitting is not.
Cladonia shawl: starting the lace border tonight. The pressure is on. It needs to be finished and dyed and blocked by 3pm Sunday. Umm ...
Ranger cardigan: we will not speak of this.
EDITED TO ADD: thanks to my clever and helpful readers, i now know the necklace is made of tumbled fluorite not beach glass. Thank you!
EDITED TO ADD SOME MORE: the soap dish is more blue, less green than shown here. The light was poor last night when i took the photo.
