Yarn

I am staying with friends at the moment who live five minutes walk from this yarn shop I have visited this shop before but just for a look.  This time I was looking for yarn to knit scarves with and to look if they have any suitable yarn for socks.

I bought three skeins one of these which I paid full price for and then one of these and another one of these in a similar colour both of which were reduced.  These three I will knit up into scarves to give as Christmas presents.

I did not find any yarn to make socks.  I may have to search for this online, but I do prefer to see and touch yarn before I buy it.

  1. Know what you mean - I also prefer to see and touch before buying yarn but my nearest yarn shop is about an hours drive away and has odd opening hours.
    Christmas knitting in August! - you are very organized, I must get to it also.

    1. I knowit seems ridiculously early but I want to make more presents this year and know that I won't make them all if I don't start now.

  2. Jitterbug is the collinette sock yarn, and I love it! I have never been to the shop but would love to one day. I definitely agree about buying is better in person, but their stuff is lovely to work with.

    1. Oh the shop is an amazing place, even if you have not intention of buying it is worth a visit. My friends live a short walk away and we are visiting again at the end of the month so I will be thinking of projects that are in need of yarn!
