As if this wasn't enough, I ventured down to the sales with my daughters. Mayhem reigned, but I returned home with TWO purchases.... woolly ones! The John Lewis sale had just begun and I managed to buy ome lovely Rowan 'tapestry'. There have been lots of complaints about this yarn on Ravelry (knots in the yarn etc), but I have loved the beautiful colourways for ages. The yarn was all half price.
I bought nine skeins of the brown tones and six of the bluey/purple. There are two projects I have in mind in the Rowan 'tapestry collection' booklet. HAPPY KNITTING!
