I’ve spoken before about knitting projects with matching nail varnish, but in the last couple of years I haven’t adorned my nails much at all. I find I don’t have the concentration that I used to, and that’s probably because I don’t have much nail varnish left. I gave away most of it when I left England and a lot of my favourites have disappeared, so I don’t bother.
The other day I had a very stressful day so on my way home I stopped in and bought myself a lovely blue-green nail polish that, through no accident, very nearly matches my current knitting project.
No, I’m not telling you what the project is yet. You might guess if you follow me on Twitter but you’d have to be looking very carefully.
Despite not having the knitting project on me I somehow managed to get very close to the right shade. There was another one I think would have matched it exactly but it was twice the price and I try to keep at least a small handle on my eccentricities.
Knitting with alpaca-blend is reminding my how much I love the fibre, meaning I’m coming out of my crunchy-wool-and-cotton stage already. Is autumn here so soon?
Another reminder (I’ll be tagging these on to most posts): I am running a Kickstarter campaign at the moment and you can check it out here if you want to see the rewards available. Thank you to those who have pledged already; you’ve made my month.
