I love getting parcels. Last Wednesday I ordered several things which would come in parcels, and they have gradually been arriving.
On Friday I got some Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish which is the BEST facial cleanser ever. I ran out recently and tried some other stuff but it just wasn’t the same. C&P not only cleans your face brilliantly but it smooths it at the same time even though it is not grainy like a scrub, it is perfectly smooth. It’s not expensive if you are used to spending a bit more on your cleanser (£11.50 for 100ml) so try it, you’ll not go back!
I also ordered 3 books from The Book Depository. One of them is still being processed but the other two were dispatched on Thursday. One arrived Friday and the other today. ???? I love The Book Depository but it does irk me that they don’t send things together when you order at the same time. Each book comes in a separate padded envelope. I do re-use these but surely they could cut down the packaging. I have been naughty and ordered another book from them today, which I’ll talk about when I get it, it could lead to trouble though!
The other thing I ordered was 2 skeins of Cascade 220 from Pavi Yarns.
I ordered these to do some swatches for my mum so she can decide which colour she wants for her Central Park Hoodie. (Mum – neither of these are this bright in real life, I took the pic in sunlight!!) So this afternoon I’ll do a couple of squares and get them posted off to her.
As for other knitting, I have done NONE since I finished my hat. I frogged a partly made jaywalker sock, and I’m going to have a go at a pair of Mermaid Socks (Rav link) but again I’m not overly enthused. I think the yarn will work for this pattern but I just can’t seem to get started. An ex-work colleague has just had her second baby so I’m thinking of a February Baby Sweater for her, but I’ll need to get yarn as I don’t really have anything in a DK weight.
