The shop window, the reflections are unfortunate but unavoidable.
a simple but attractive display that entices you in to look at the shelves on view.
Just inside the door is a display of buttons, everything from plain to cute and gorgeous. I did resist.....this time.
To the right of the counter, I did find some treasure there.
Almost secreted away in the corner are the needles, a really good selection. I was good and ignored my itchy fingers.
There is a display of some really lovely jewellery from a local maker here. Saved by the fact that I hardly ever wear the stuff.
Going clockwise round the shop is a colourful display, lots of Stylecraft yarns. I found 3 balls to add to the new crochet blanket.
Hand dyed loveliness, yes a skein from here came back with me. I know, only one, it will be socks for the Christmas gift box.
Then there are the shelves you can see from the window, 3 balls of WYS sock yarn now live in my house. Again destined to be socks in the gift box.
My Haul. All destined to go into the gift box.
The lovely Angela, goodness it looks as though I have not brushed my hair for a week. Goodness I look like my mother, and my granny, could be worse, I could look like my Grandfather or Dad. Bald.
I just have to tell you that almost the first thing that Angela said was, "would you like a cup of tea or coffee" closely followed by "help yourself to cake".
I wonder if I could move.......
I did enjoy my time there and although the shop is not huge there is a wide selection of yarn to suit all budgets. I was certainly pleased with the cost of my purchases, that is why there were so many. If you knit or crochet and can get to Penarth I urge you to go. I will be back.
I will share my purchases next time as the evening is drawing in and I have a Herbie telling me that he Needs to go out. Right Now.
