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.
I love the Unicorn Poop yarn, the colours are gorgeous. Is it really called that?ReplyDelete
It really is, I have had it for quite a while but other projects kept pushing it away, this morning I had a little time to spare and decided that the time was right.ReplyDelete
Gorgeous colour, that red yarn. I'm always impressed by anyone who can knit their own socks.ReplyDelete
Ha, ha, ha....Unicorn Poop yarn. I can see why it was called that. Can't wait to see what it's like when you have knitted it up-x-ReplyDelete
