My new friend Jess came to knit and natter today and, of course, her gorgeous daughter Ivy came as well. She is not a lover of car journeys but slept all the way home.
There were only a handful of us but the natter was just as good. Ivy was very well behaved, and on her first visit, and checked the whole shop out.
We had a visitor, who only lives 20 minutes or so away from me, a spinner and dyer !! deep joy.
Tina has an online yarn shop Loobylou yarns with a small but perfectly formed selection of luxury yarns at very affordable prices.
There will be Yarn Clubs, more joy, and she has Alpacas joy upon joy.
I am happy to say that she did not come empty handed, by arrangement with Deb there was a basket of goodies to be squeezed, stroked and bought. Of course I did,but only the one ball. It is destined to be a gift and will be flying off later in the year.
Debs had manged to get a little more of the Pulse yarn so a sweater quantity and a pattern came home with me.
How good can it get, and there is still Wonder Wool to come next month.
Now I have to get dinner on the go, something with a root vegetable mash I think, comfort food to make the day complete.
Then to add the final flourish I have a new sock cast on. This should be for me, just a vanilla pair using my Unicorn Poop yarn.
Just 5 rows of rib, but it will soon grow.
