We went to John Lewis last week and spent quite a lot of money on fabulous yarns, my favourite was Debbie Bliss Fez which is so soft and warm. Its mainly extra fine merino but has about 15% of camel hair added which is sumptuous.
Today we went to the Black Sheep Barn in Warrington www.blacksheepwools.com which is floor to ceiling yarns, threads, patterns and has every knitting needle and crochet hook you can imagine. It's like an Aladdin's Cave. We went in with very good intentions about sticking to our planned budget but unfortunately we failed - you just never ever know when you might need 12 balls of Sublime chunky merino tweed and it was such a bargain!
|Can't wait to start knitting with this lovely yarn|
I have spent the evening putting my wools away but as you can see I am rapidly running out of draw space - but it does look lovely.
|I will need another chest of drawers soon!|
