More hats, boots and chat ........

My shopping trip was very productive  - I think I might have the perfect wedding outfit but I also managed to get lots of lovely new yarn! I happened to stumble across "Purl City"  in Manchester's Northern Quarter- it wasn't really a stumble as I have been before and actually it wasn't very near any wedding outfit shops!

I love Purl City they have lots of amazing yarns and the staff are so lovely and they have a big sofa so you can just drop in and do some knitting and have a chat. They also have a great blog with interesting patterns and ideas

I bought some fine Egyptian cotton and some merino wool to knit some more little hats and bootees - I really must put them on our Folksy Shop as its empty at the moment ......... it looks like we have stopped knitting - what an awful thought!


One of my favourite blogs at the moment is Kate talks about all aspects of her life but majors on her knitting projects, cooking and also interesting books she has read or is reading.  

" The Dirty Life" - took my fancy its a true story about following your dreams and learning to grow your own happiness. Kristin Kimball interviews an organic farmer ..... I won't go on as I don't want to spoil the story for you.

 I have also been baking for yet another christening - all these new spring babies.........      


Hope you all have a lovely Easter ..........good night x
