Hiya Julie

Can't wait to see it! What flavour is - er, I mean, what colour is it?





Hmmm - anybody would think I'd got the midnight munchies!

PS - Check it out, Julie, - there isn't a chocolate to be seen!

Hiya Julie

:chair :

I swear there are times when you'd make a cat laugh - daft nit!

I dunno, call yourself a choc-o-holic and you don't know where your

"Emergency Stash!!!! - Do Not Touch!!! Strictly Off Limits!!!!
is?

Can you still not get Terry's Chocolate Orange in US?




Tut - what a shame! Could be though, (munch, crunch, melt) play your cards right, that a midnight muncher could send some your way

Thanks so much for the gorgeous hat and I think that colour is the business - really lovely stuff.

Ellie XXXX

Hiya Rita

"Ellie - I am not sure what yarn i have used because i have had it a long time and the ball bands gone . Could be off a market stall maybe" she said.
************************************************** *
Oohh - well, there's a blow - lovely shade of chocolate but no ball band - bummer

Just had a thought!

Would it be ok next time you fancy a bit of chocolate (if you're like me, that could be in the next five minutes) to go and get a few different bars (strictly in the interests of knitting karma, of course) unwrap them and check them against the yarn?

This, though, might pose a bit of a problem - I mean, what would you do with all that uneaten choc!??

Nah - maybe that's not such a good idea after all!



- oo, I know - why not send me a small sample of the yarn and then I could go out and get a few bars (again, strictly in the interests of knitting karma) and test them for colour!

I've just had another look at that very fine hat and indeedy, it does put me in mind of a Mars Bar, but I could be wrong - Galaxy could fit the bill but just to be on the safe side, I'd have to have a squint at Cadbury's Dairy Milk as well. We don't have a problem with uneaten choc around here - longest shelf-life is two minutes and ticking.

Some twerp I share the house with has just pointed out that I could get the sample of yarn from you and go to a wool shop and match it up!

Have you ever heard the like of it? Matching up chocolate wool without the the chocolate! - doesn't bear thinking about. Obviously a non-knitter!

Oh - well, sacrifices have to be made - so I'll get practicing with the choc.

Start off with my favourite, which sort of matches my avatar as well!
