Yesterday I ordered some more Alaska from Scandinavian Knitting Design to make Amused from the winter Knitty. I have chosen colour 04 - a medium grey. They are usually brilliant at next day delivery. Luckily I had to stay home this morning for the plumber to come and fix our loo which decided it didn't want to flush anymore. I was in the house until 11.45 after which the plumber was gone and I left for a couple of hours at work. The yarn hadn't arrived by then. When I got home there was the telltale little red card - "we have taken it back to the sorting office as it was too big to fit through your letterbox" - at 1pm. Grrrr! Now I have to go and collect it!
It'll give me time to finish the step-dad socks though, only one toe to finish.
