I popped down to the craft shop that sells some of my knitting last week, just to do a little stock up before we leave for the summer. I phoned Barbara who runs the shop beforehand who said she had some yarn for me. Knowing my preference for natural yarns she had allocated for me a donated skein of naturally dyed hand spun wool, that had me excited.
A skein was something of an understatement, she had two bags of yarn ready for me, I sat in her lounge where we tipped out the bags to discover an amazing selection. Just look
100 g of the promised lace weight Blue Faced Leicester
9 x 50g balls of Freedom Gorgeous 79% bamboo dk
4 x 100g balls of Rico Starlight chunky
3 x 50g of Debbie Bliss Rialto Aran merino superwash
2 x 50g balls of Debbie Bliss Rialto Lace extra fine merino
14 x 25g of Debbie Bliss Angel or Party Angel, super kid mohair and silk the latter with a slight sparkle and all in the most beautiful shades
There is also a space bag so I can suck the air out and squash down the contents for packing. It’s amazing that all this gorgeousness has been donated, I feel obliged to use it wisely. Obviously a lot is going to Italy, I have promised to work hard to knit lovely things in time for Christmas. Keep reminding me of that please.
