Have just got back from a lovely day in London. Went round the yarn shops and ended up at Hamleys.
Was a bit dissappointed at first as the Handweavers studio was exactly as stated - was lovely but not exactly what I was after!! Still came out with some hand-dyed Peruvian sheep wool - decided against the nettle!!
Loop was shut so very dissappointed there. I don't recall seeing that on the website and can't believe they would be shut this close the Christmas.
Iknit however, more than made up for it - very friendly staff that were not too in your face and some lovely yarn to be had - spent a bit but not too much.
Hamleys of course was great and picked some bits for the boys - again spent a little but not too much.
This is the whole haul. Minus some bits for a Christmas swap I am taking part in. The colors aren't great as I am taking the photos by fairy lights!! The grotto is now ready!
Some arun from the West Yorkshire Spinners to make into gloves
Some sock DK to make into.....socks!!
Some lovely DK by Fyberspates to make into a top - haven't decided which yet.
|And this is the interesting Peruvian wool from Handweavers!|
