yarn shopping what could be nicer...............

My friend Pam came to stay last week and it was a perfect opportunity to have a trip to Black SheepWool - such a wonderful yarn emporium. We had a wonderful few hours browsing the shelves and selecting our wares. Also since I last visited they have added a lovely little coffee shop, which means you can shop, rest and then shop some more – what more could you ask for!
Such an amazing selection of all things yarny and crafty, and great value - attributes all good crafty outlets should aspire for.

I had promised myself to resist temptation and not overspend. I only bought what I needed and kept to budget. I decided on some extra fine merino, a few balls of grey cotton, some lovely fine 4ply, and lastly some bright mingled chunky.

a perfect day, talk soon x

  10. I love Black Sheep Wools and it's only a short drive away from me - too close sometimes ;) I always go for their sale armed with a list to help me focus and always end up with extra goodies. x
