Lazy Sunday afternoons...

I am really looking forward to a lazy Sunday afternoon, it feels like I haven't had one for so long!
I''ve spent most of the morning adding more hexagons to my blanket. I pulled this out of the WIP pile whilst photographing projects for Ravelry. I realised how much I like it (and lots of other people have left lovely comments too), so I'm crocheting away on this instead of working on Toby's pullover or Lauren's secret birthday present.
I have also found out the last of my Noro from the stash.
Enough for about 20-22 more hexagons I think; which will nearly double the size. I probably need some more red shades to balance it out.
Finally, a little stash enhancement happened this week. I ordered some Lorna's Laces Shepherd Sock from a US ebay seller as it is so much cheaper over there even after shipping. However I got stung for customs charges of an extra £12 which ended up making it about 10p more expensive per skein then from Get Knitted! I think I've learnt my lesson there.
I still have some lovely new sock yarn....
Turquoise and Jungle Stripe. Plus another shade which has gone into my reveal parcel for my SP which will be posted on Monday.

Ouch! What a pain about the customs charge. The yarn is gorgeous though.

All that Noro looks wonderful together and your blanket is going to look stunning. I love it!
