Rainbow colours

Firstly I would like to say a very big THANK YOU to everyone who has been kind enough to send me Get Well wishes following my Stupidness last Thursday!

I am feeling a little better and although my head does still hurt quite a lot ~ which with 4 staples holding it together is to be expected ~ I am slowly starting to get back to normal. Although to say that I am beginning to PANIC about the removal of the aforementioned staples is a bit of an understatement! However, as I can’t keep them in my head for ever I will just have to grin and bear it and put up with the pain~ because I am very sure that there will definitely be pain involved somewhere!

Right that is enough panicking for the time being ~ let’s get ourselves back to these Rainbow colours.

A few weeks ago I signed up for a Rainbow Colour Swap and my lovely swap package from Juanita arrived on Friday just in time to cheer me up from my Stupidness! Inside the parcel was a very lovely little green bag which Juanita got on her travels in India and also a beautiful handmade green beaded bracelet which included a bead which she had handpicked from a street vendor in India too. I love the bracelet and am sure that I will wear it often! Thank you so much Juanita.

I also received another parcel at the weekend which was of the very lovely woolly kind. I LOVE it when these packages of wool arrive. I get so much enjoyment from just unpacking it and seeing what lovely colour combinations can be made. As you can see there are quite a few rainbowy colours in there and they will be just right for making more of the pretty flowery centres for my Summer Garden Granny Squares. There are just so many different colour combinations to be made that I find myself waking up at night just thinking about it!

I’m think that I am going to go now and put the kettle on and rest my sore little stapled head and I must say that I plan to put my feet up, drink tea and crochet for most of the afternoon :O)

I am so pleased to read you are OK! I even told my husband about your accident as it played on my mind for a while!
Glad all is healing well.
That bracelet is totally gorgeous, what a treat!

And as to the wools, they are so yummy! What brand are they? The colours are really lovely.

That rainbow (is it crochet?) is very cool and colourful.

What pretty gifts you have received! the bag look very lovely and the braclet. I am very much into beaded and charm type ones at the moment.

Cant wait to see what you do with all your knitty rainbow colours.

Glad to hear that you are feeling better if a little apprehensive about the staples coming out. A few years ago I had to have an operation and had 28 of them out. And much like yourself was really worried. But too be honest the nurse was really lovely and chatty and I didnt really notice her taking them out.

Hope that helps! Take care.

You know, when it comes to yarn, I just can't commit myself to one / two colours -- I can NEVER decide; I just want everything.
I wonder what you're going to make with this rainbow variety of yarn!
