Arrived! New Yarn from Bendigo

Hoorah! I am thinking the fact that my schedules got mixed up and my flights postponed for a week was actually a blessing to give me extra time to wait for my yarn to arrive (Unfortunately, my book order from Amazon still hasn't arrived, despite being "shipped" 2 weeks ago. I think i'll email them).


Anyways, I took advantage of the Bendigo yarn sale and ordered up a few balls of yarn. Being a non-stasher, these of course have designated projects, and while it is only part of my order, I'm sure the rest will come shortly.

The first is Classic 12 ply, in Plum for the James Coviello Ruffled Jacket. I think the colour is divine, and reminds me a lot of the Currant coloured yarn I used for my Cherry Cardigan, and is just a smidge darker than the picture below. Unfortunately due to my recent spate of startitis, this project will have to wait till at least two of my other projects are completed.


The second is the 8ply Cotton, in colourway Maritime, for my sister's christmas present which I have to get cracking on soon. I think i'll bring this project, and my little sock project to site with me when I fly out Wednesday.

Oh yeah, I asked my HR person today "I sometimes have problems bringing knitting with me, and just wanted to check it was okay for the charter flight to site?" and her reply? "umm.. i can't say many miners have asked me that question before" hehehe :) They must think I'm an anomaly :)
