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.
