SHOPPING.....



Good evening! I'm just popping in to show you my carefully chosen purchases from Fibre East; three very beautiful skeins and a rather lovely spotty crochet hook.


Easyknits has to be one of my 'must go to' vendors at the shows. Jon dyes beautifully and loves a touch of sparkle. Although I'm not a massive lace weight knitter, I couldn't resist this gorgeous skein of Twinkle Lace in colour way 'Into the Blue'. It's a 75% merino, 20% silk and 5% stellia mix and will probably end up becoming another 'Almost Ovals' scarf. My pics are not too good a colour match   as the blues are really much more turquoise.


Next up is a fabulously soft skein of 'Five Moons' 75% merino 20% nylon mix, also with a touch of sparkle! It's due to become ...... socks!


Last up is a really lovely skein of Stride self-striping from 'The Knitting Swede'. It's 75% super wash BFL and 25%nylon. This little beauty is joining me on a trip to Provence tomorrow and will return, hopefully, as a pair of Provence Socks, to remind me of the beautiful lavender fields.

See you in a couple of week! :-)
