Cheating ocolates and magging readazines.

I have Cadbury. The real deal, straight from Europe, courtesy of friends who apparently love me very much. The feeling is entirely mutual.

In addition to awesome chocolate, I have some reading material. It's a business card from MarLen, a sewing/notions/yarn shop in Prague. This bit of international advertising is attached to...

YARN!

Super-groovy yarn. Two huge hanks of a wonderful silk multi-strand yarn that just screams "shawl". Fine threads of pale blue, green and yellow lie alongside warm beige, cream, and coffee brown. It's shiny and lively and I can't wait to devote time to finding (and knitting) just the right pattern with it.

But wait, there's more!

There's also a ball of mystery yarn. It also ranks high on the grooviness scale. Think smooth, dense mohair, with just a hint of halo. It looks like the yarn was surface-painted navy over white, giving it kind of a denim effect. I'm thinking of finding some copper yarn to go with it; sort of a blue jeans Fair Isle effect.

Right after I finish the watch cap. And the Civil War shawl.

And the chocolate...

"Magging readazines?" At first I thought you'd lost your mind and we were hearing babbling from your corner [you know, the one by the fire with the comfy rocker and the pile of yarn?and the cotton rags to wipe the drool?]Then the penny dropped, ever so slowly, and I grinned, because I had just uttered a spoonerism myself, moments before---- "cussy futting." Quilters would get it, knitters might not! I am fascinated by the brain's ability to perform such complicated maneuvers! You couldn't make this stuff up! The OC's favourite is "bavishing rooties!"

And the yarn sounds nice too....
