My sweet, lovely friends, I’ve treasured every one of your comments, emails, and cards over the last couple of days. This has, without question, been the worst week of my life, and at times of grief, the kindness and compassion of friends is a powerful solace. At times I feel like I’m plunging into a black, black hole of misery, but each loving comment, and sympathetic gesture is like a hand pulling me a little way out.
There could never have been a good time to lose such a beloved pet as Snickers – he was my little baby, and I loved him wholeheartedly. But following as it does the last few difficult months, coming just as I was beginning to get well again, was a blow almost too much to bear. As always, Tony has been wonderful, and sharing our grief has lessened it a little bit, as well as drawing us even closer together. Friends and family have been supportive too, but it’s been your support that has really helped me keep going. Every comment, every email has been appreciated so much, and I’m deeply touched by the cards and gifts we’ve received, including this incredible bouquet of flowers from David.
David, you have the kindest heart, and I’m deeply grateful for your generosity. Even in the midst of loss, I’m reminded over and over how lucky I am to have gained so many lovely friends in the course of running Posh Yarn. I treasure you all, I really do. A thousand thank you, a thousand kisses blown around the world, for the love and support of this week.
I have worked a little today; we already had the yarn ready for this week’s update, so I just had to photograph it. I hope you’ll like the selection; some of pretty soft colourways are especially calling out to me this week.

Important information for non-UK shoppers: the clocks go forward one hour this weekend in Britain, so the 6pm sale will be an hour later than you normally expect it. It will be at 6pm GMT+1 (also known as British Summer Time, or BST).
Until Sunday, my sweethearts, take care of yourselves. I will leave you with a close up of my beautiful flowers….
